Do you have some .mobi files you’ve been trying to read on your Linux machine? FB Reader is an eBook reader program that allows you to read .mobi files (as well as other eBook formats) in Linux.

I'd recommend Calibre - it's in the default repositories (
sudo apt-get install calibre), and from my experiences it works OOTB.

Your article is informative as regards to using a new app to read. But, I have to agree with @mpeyton in that Calibre is an easier install, reads DRM, and, if you want to strip the DRM so you can read your material on multiple devices, you can follow these instructions:
I think that makes for a better over all app. But I may have to actually try FB Reader just so I can know for sure.

FBReader shows up in the Ubuntu Software Center for me, odd.

I'm also recommending Calibre, it's the best single solution for all types of ebooks.
