On this Deepin tutorial, I am going to show you how to install Calibre 2.0 on Deepin 2014. Before we go further to the installation process, you may want to look at the new features and updates of Calibre 2.0 below:

  • Add support for MTP devices (Android phones/tablets) on OS X

  • Tag Browser: Show format specific icons for the format entries in the Tag Browser

  • PDF Output: Fix balanced parentheses in the text of items in the Table of Contents not being rendered properly by some PDF viewers
  • Edit book: Abort terminal save on save error instead of quitting editor
  • Get Books: Update the Project Gutenberg plugin for website changes
