Why are you fooling around with yBook on wine? I just checked out the website

and it looks like a simple utility. I've been using Calibre [1] for a couple of years

now and think very highly of it. an older version is in the repositories but the

latest is a simple Install with a copy & paste to the command line [2]. It reads

everything and keeps track of all your ebooks too. Searches are very fast and I've

never had a problem reading an ebook in any format - lit, epub, pdf, rtf, to name a few.

[2] sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"
