I've successfully installed Adobe Digital Editions using Wine in Linux Mint 10, and it appears that the program operates normally for the most part, as I can open eBooks and view my library. However, in Windows, when I plug in my Nook, the Nook shows up in ADE in my library view. It does not do so in Linux. I can simply copy the files to the Nook, as Linux treats it as a Mass Storage Device, but I download library books, and I think ADE has to do something special with the books for them to be recognized by the Nook as having the correct copyright info. So, I have 2 questions.
1) Is it possible to get the Nook to show up in ADE?
2) If not, is there a sufficient workaround? For instance, get ADE to "authorize" the book, then simply transfer it over to the Nook as Mass Storage Device via command line or drag and drop. Or does ADE even need to do this?
Note: I have used the
Configure Wine program to map
/media/nook to the
D: drive, but it still doesn't work.
