I inherited my late brother's Kindle..not used it yet- does it work with Linux and how do I get any ebooks I download from Amazon?

Try installing calibre:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install calibre

then see if this works:

Is that what you meant ?

Yes Mark- I did the sudo command. I found a website that has a free Beethoven kindle file and saved it to my laptop but when I plug in the usb cable from the Kindle to my laptop nothing is registered and have no idea how to load the file onto the Kindle.

Ubuntu 12.04/12.10, Mint 13/14, Peppermint 3 instructions:-

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:langdalepl/gvfs-mtp
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade



Ubuntu 13.04/13.10, Mint 15/16, Peppermint 4 instructions:-

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mtpfs



Then in all cases .. replug the Kindle.

Did that work ?

I did the first one and it told me to reboot. I then did the other commands and got this:

melissa@melissa-HP-Compaq-nx6325-RH628ES-ABU ~ $ sudo apt-get upgrade
[sudo] password for melissa:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
melissa@melissa-HP-Compaq-nx6325-RH628ES-ABU ~ $ sudo apt-get install mtpfs

I suppose it is telling you how to fix the error.

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
then run
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade

If all goes well that the gvfs package should be upgraded to include mtp support

So what happens if you plug in the Kindle now ?

Nothing. Where is the Kindle icon supposed to be? Looked in desktop and file manager-not there.

There won't be a "kindle" icon anywhere.

unplug the kindle .. wait 10 seconds .. replug the Kindle .. now open a terminal and send the output from:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail -n 35
and
Code: [Select]

p.s my distros are posted at the bottom of all my posts- I am always on the laptop these days cos of its big screen unless I say I'm on Dell netbook I'll always be on this Peppermint 3 old laptop that you helped me change from Windows XP. XP *shudder* I have  a temp job at the moment and they are using XP- it is ghastly.

your signature only says Peppermint/Mint .. no mention of version or architecture.

How are we supposed to know which you're having the issue with .. are we to guess between Peppermint/Mint, and guess which version, and guess at the architecture ?

Even if you had the full thing in your sig .. you might be on a different PC, or have not kept your sig up to date.

I'm not asking for much here am I ? .. just for you to help us help you  :o



OK let's try purging that PPA, and trying again:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
then
Code: [Select]
sudo ppa-purge ppa:langdalepl/gvfs-mtp
and accept the changes

When that's finished, REBOOT.

When rebooted, run:
Code: [Select]
audo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
now REBOOT again.

When back at the desktop, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
then
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:langdalepl/gvfs-mtp
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
but before hitting "y" to allow it to upgrade .. copy the list of files it says its going to upgrade to a text file somewhere (so you can post that list here later).

Then hit the "y" to accept the upgrades.

Once the upgrades have finished .. REBOOT  <-- this is important

Now see if plugging your Kindle in works ?

FAO Mark: Side point - there's a kernel update waiting....is it worth doing a:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
???

Also, dmesg showed a device (Kindle...?) being created as sdc, so how come you didn't suggest just mounting it? Is it something to do with the Kindle's filesystem, and corruption etc?
