Additional Comments

Before you run wine KindleForPC-installer.exe, You must remove a file before installing via wine rm ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/winsxs/manifests/x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4148_none_deadbeef.manifest su wine KindleForPC-installer.exe To run it, you also need to be in su. cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Amazon/Kindle/ su wine Kindle.exe This seemed to give me all the necessary permissions. When I didn't run in root, it crashed.
