In windows on the toolbar of the browser I have a link which allows me to send an page from a website directly to my kindle.




Amazon does not appear to offer this software for Linux,
Any help appreciated.

Bill

I wouldn't expect that the Amazon website would care once you're signed in...are you using the same browser on Linux you're using on Windows? In Firefox, that link is on the page, not in the toolbar after a purchase is made, and the content is sent to the kindle via email...yes?

Which browser are you using?

wpower,
I appreciate the "attaboy," but others might benefit from the answers to the questions I posed.

No, Amazon probably doesn't make the same software for Linux. But I have a kindle fire and I can just surf on it.

Lightbulb Send to Kindle

Thanks to Sean I figured out that I need to use Chrome which has an extension to facilitate this.
I was using Firefox and my copy is not yet supported by Amazon.

Thanks to all for their responses.
