I have tried the Amazon Kindle HD 7", but could not integrate it at all with my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS OS.

I have tried the USB cable but it didn't show up on the screen and I have tried to connect it via Bluetooth, but it also didn't work.

I have Calibre installed on my Ubuntu, but could not integrate it/export books to Kindle. I have also tried to use Ubuntu One, but Amazon has its own cloud system. Does anyone of you have any solution for these problems?

Thanks very much!

send them via email to your kindle account. Calibre has an option for that. If you are unfamiliar every kindle has a unique email that you can send documents to.,


You may try installing SendToKindle program written in python.

First install python setup tools:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

Then follow instructions on github repository:


After installation you should be able to send any file via right mouse click.
