Unhappy Trouble with installing ebook converter Epubor AllDRMRemoval


I bought the version of this for Linux and wanted to use it to convert my ebooks in case my Kindle dies again, so I can just have them waiting in Calibre.

I can't figure out how to install/run their program. This is a list of the files it came with. Help? I already tried running their Windows demo under WINE and it crashes immediately every time.

i would guess that "translator" is the executable.
so double-click that.
or open a terminal in that folder, and enter
Code:
./translator

I did. They weren't helpful. After selling me the Linux version, they insist that it can't work on Linux. They've offered to transfer the license to Windows, but I do not have Windows... And running the demo under WINE wouldn't work, at all.

No, the link is right here: https://www.epubor.com/drm-removal-tools.html See how you can buy it for Linux?

It's unbelievable, yet the situation REALLY IS that dumb.

I tried, but translator appears to be a directory.

I'm pretty close to just asking for a refund, but I hate to give up when there are technical problems, it's SO frustrating to do so!

They might be able to sell this product but as far as LQ views this it may not be a topic that is permitted. Removal of DRM is technically a hack, crack or otherwise.

They appear to have removed the "For Linux" link. Send them that screenshot and demand your money back.

Why did you not try it out before you bought it?

I didn't know there was a trial version yet... I'll see it it can refund.

Ed: The Linux link is still showing up on my phone (Android, Galaxy Note.)

Never mind, they gave me a refund

I guess I'll have to take more time in dealing with my screen-damaged kindle when I replace it... Sigh. Thanks for your help, everyone! You're so nice!!!

Oh well, you live and learn.

You can mark this thread "Solved" if you want - see "Thread Tools" at the top of the thread.
