okular plugin for epub format

I tried to open with okular an .epub file and it gave me the message that there is no plugin for it. What should I do to make it work?

If you are using Debian (4?), I believe epub-utils and/or libepub will be needed.

That might get Okular to read epub files.

This should works:

# sudo apt-get install okular-extra-backends

I hope you're still not using Debian 4. You might want to update your profile to reflect the version of Debian you using at the moment. If you have no particular reason for using Okular to do this job then you could simply install the calibre package which comes with an ebook viewer.
