Calibre Ebook 3.0 released, experimental Jessie/Stretch repo

Postby stevepusser » 2017-06-17 00:46

I had to make separate repos for Jessie and Stretch, since I had to cut out HDPI support for older distros. That requires Qt5 >= 5.6.

Instructions for Stretch and newer Ubuntus: ... ge=calibre

Jessie and Ubuntu 16.04: ... ge=calibre

For both, run the commands given as root or with sudo, except for the wget command to download the key--run that as normal user. You can also leave a few intermediate ones out, just do these...

sed command to create the repo in your sources
wget command to get the key
apt-key command to install the key
apt-get update
apt-get install calibre

Let me know of any problems.
