Calibre has been used for many years over three main operating systems and is a useful program. Am not sure why the distro version is way behind, as the current update is 5.22.1.
Very obsolete version!!! Recently available version is 5.12??!!
Calibre 5.4.2 is available for a looong time. Software Manager still offers to install 4.99...
Very Good app!

super Programm was ich auch unter Windows 10 nutze, hier unter linux Mint. Ja mal eine Bewertung in Deutsch (German)
The Solution in conjunction with Terminal (from official source ;-) is: sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS! As specified on their official website, download the OFFICIAL latest release. At this time it is 4.11.2 which is MUCH newer.
This version is extremely out of date (current is 4.9.1). Get a newer version here: https://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux
Does what is expected
It is so useful however it would be great add a google drive option for synchronise
Excellent, easy to use and good for converting to the .mobi format for kindle.
Must have for e-readers
Amazingly bad interface wrapped around great functionality
Great app to convert ebooks to send to Amazon Kindle
Best Ebook Reader on the repository. Period.
Indispensible tool for anybody who knows how to read.
Great tool, but you should get the latest version from their website! Interfaces easil with every device I have tried, old Kindle to brand new Google Nexus 10 (Android).
