What works

So far, I could see my whole library, download a book and browse through it.

What does not

Installing 1.21 directly doesn't succeed as described below.


As suggested in reviews of previous versions, I had to install an older version first, e.g.:

WINEPREFIX=/home/your_login_name/.wine_kindle wine kindle-for-pc-1-16-44025.exe

I started this version and log in as suggested by the application with my amazon account.
Then, I closed this version and updated to the current one, e.g.:

WINEPREFIX=/home/your_login_name/.wine_kindle wine KindleForPC-installer-1.21.48017.exe

When I try to install 1.21 directly, the start of the application hangs up in an endless loop and the cpu temperature rises ....

I found the old version 1.16 here:

What was not tested

So far everything else than opening the library, downloading a local copy and browse (read) it.
