How To Install Adobe Digital Editions On Ubuntu 14.04?


Few days back, I rented an e-book from Kinige, a retailer of telugu print & ebooks. I thought I could read that book immediately on their website. But they offered a .acsm & I had to install ADE(Adobe Digital Editions) to read that book. Since ADE is not available for Linux platform, I had to install wine first and then install ADE from it.

1. Installing Wine:

Wine  is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD. The easiest way to install wine on Ubuntu 14.04 is from its PPA. Open the terminal and run these commands.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks
You can check if wine is installed correctly by typing  wine --version 

2. Install ADE

Once you installed wine, you can easily install ADE. The current version is ADE 4.0 as of today(Oct 9th 2014). But only ADE 1.7 works on wine. So you have to download ADE 1.7. You can download it from here. Once you have downloaded that, you can just double click and install it just like windows.
