Post Remove DRM from PDF books?


I purchased some books from Kobo under the assumption that I could remove the DRM. But the only tools I'm finding are for windows. And it requires Python for Windows so I can't get it to work with WINE no matter what. Also I found a plugin for Calibre that supposedly will work. But I couldn't figure it how. It seemed like it was written for the Wiindows version of Calibre. As it didn't show up in after I installed the plugin.

Are there well tested and easy tools for Linux (Ubuntu / Debian preferably) for doing this?

Thank you guys for any help you can give.

God Bless

Removing DRM from PDFs is considered cracking and discussions about that are not allowed on this forum.
