If you want to read your Amazon e-books with Linux and google for it you will find some misleading information. I have gone through it and describe it here for you. FBReader and calibre do not even let me enter my Amazon credentials, and I cannot read my e-books.

However I was able to read Amazon e-books with Linux on 2013-10-25 with SUSE Linux 12.2:

rpm -e wine wine-32bit wine-mp3
rpm -ivh wine-1.7.4-290.1.x86_64.rpm wine-gecko-2.24-43.1.noarch.rpm wine-32bit-1.7.4-290.1.x86_64.rpm
  • Now you start the reader's installation:
wine Downloads/KindleForPC-installer.exe
  • And start the reader:
cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Amazon/Kindle
wine Kindle.exe
