Trying to run kindle under wine

Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

I had it working. After it installed, it ran and everything worked. After I closed it, I can find no way to start it again. I can not find any kindle application, anywhere.

I can not fine anything about kindle anywhere in my /home/walter/.wine directory.

Application->Wine->Programs shows me nothing.

Another problem, Amazon downloads books into /root/My Kindle Content. The only way for me to read my kindle books is chmod my /root directory, which I don't like doing.

Is there any way to remove the DRM, so I can use Calibre to view the book in an epub format? Instead of having to fight with this evil amazon format?

you do know that most distros have a ebook reader installed by default or in the repos

Calibre , and it is one of the best readers .
