it does RSS but it's clunky importing OPML & setting it up
Latest Flatpak version working perfectly and same version as on website. Love the way that Linux Mint 21.1 updates automatically now.
v4.99.4 -__- The latest release of calibre is 6.8.0.
I took the advice of Guest1053, who wrote in April, 2022 "Official site says not to use this and to only use the binary located on their website" and installed the binary from the web site. However, I found that it was unable to open ebooks - just displayed a new window with a stuck progress bar. I then installed the version from the repo via Software Manager and found, though it may be an older version, it didn't have that problem. I'm running LM21 Cinnamon. I'd be interested in hearing if others have had a similar experience.
creo es la mejor aplicación de este tipo. (I think it is the best application of this type)
Official site says not to use this and to only use the binary located on their website
One of the best apps
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This version is extremely out of date (current is 4.9.1).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
