But thanks to technology, you now can have the Kindle app on your PC without buying an iPhone or Kindle. This program is useful because you can download and read books just by sitting in front of your computer. Unfortunately, there is no Linux or Mac version but you can make Kindle work on Linux based machines.
This application works on Ubuntu 9.04 on Gonome system but may work on other versions of Linux because there was no significant difference between them.
The first thing you need to do is install the software on your PC Wine HQ.
The next step after the software is installed is to download the Kindle for PC applications from the official website Amazon.
Kindle app will run with Wine HQ software. Installation will be no different from any program that is installed with Windows system.
When you use this application for the first time you will not see any text. If this happens, you must close the Kindle and select “configure wine” found in wine HQ software.
You must select an application and add it to your software; you also have to set it to run in windows 98 mode. This is just one method that can make Kindle work but one of the fastest. If it does not work for you then you should look for a different model.
After you perform this task, open the application again and you should not have problems anymore. When you get a program running you have to open it by entering your email and password.
