Hämta för Linux

Den senaste utgåvan av calibre är 3.35.0. Vad är nytt.

Please do not use your distribution provided calibre package, as those are often buggy/outdated. Instead use the Binary install described below.

Binary install

calibre has a binary install that includes private versions of all its dependencies. It runs on 32-bit and 64-bit Intel compatible machines. To install or upgrade, simply copy paste the following command into a terminal and press Enter:

sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin

While you wait for the download to complete, please consider contributing to support the development of calibre.


  • If you get an error about an untrusted certificate, that means your computer does not have any root certificates installed and so cannot download the installer securely. If you still want to proceed, pass the --no-check-certificate option to wget, like this:
    sudo -v && wget --no-check-certificate -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin
  • You must have xdg-utils, wget, xz-utils and python ≥ 2.6 installed on your system before running the installer.
  • You can uninstall calibre by running sudo calibre-uninstall. Alternately, simply deleting the installation directory will remove 99% of installed files.
  • You need GLIBC 2.17 or higher and libstdc++.so.6.0.17 (from gcc 4.7.0) or higher to run calibre
  • You can change the directory calibre is installed into from the default (/opt) like this:
    sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin install_dir=/opt
    Change /opt above to whatever directory you want calibre automatically installed to.
  • Du kan också göra en" isolerad " installation som bara berör filer i installationskatalogen och behöver inte köras som root, så här:
    wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sh /dev/stdin install_dir=~/calibre-bin isolated=y

Manual binary install or reverting to a previous version

If you wish to revert to an earlier calibre release or download a calibre upgrade manually, download the tarball of that release from here (choose the 32-bit or 64-bit version, as appropriate). Assuming you want calibre in /opt/calibre, run the following command, changing the path to calibre-tarball.txz below as appropriate:

    sudo mkdir -p /opt/calibre && sudo rm -rf /opt/calibre/* && sudo tar xvf /path/to/downloaded/calibre-tarball.txz -C /opt/calibre && sudo /opt/calibre/calibre_postinstall

Source install

WARNING: calibre is a highly complex piece of software with lots of very finicky dependencies. If you install from source, you are on your own. Please do not open bug reports or expect any form of support. You have been warned.

Om du fortfarande är fast besluten att installera från källa, läs vidare:

  1. Make sure your system has python 2 installed.
  2. Install the various dependencies listed below
  3. Kör följande kommandon i en terminal:
curl -L https://calibre-ebook.com/dist/src | tar xvJ 
cd calibre*
sudo python2 setup.py install


The up-to-date list of dependencies that the official calibre binaries are bundled with, can be seen in sources.json. While calibre might work with versions of dependencies other than those listed there, it is not tested/supported. In addition to those dependencies various build time requirements such as pkg-config, a C/C++ compiler, etc are needed. You can also speed up the "Compiling RapydScript" part of the build process considerably by installing rapydscript-ng.
