Anyone have a good recommendation for a ebook reader on linux? They all seemingly have a terrible ui.
@kyle yea, sadly they don't support .epub.
@ckipp I use calibre. It's ugly by default but customisable to an extent
@ckipp Calibre? You can configure the look for it... there must be something else but I don't use them much. Maybe GNOME Evince can do? It works nice but I'm unsure about positions
@ckipp The "best" lighter-weight one I've found is FBReader. It has a weird toolbar user interface that I don't like, but at least you can customize how everything looks--fonts, colors, margins, line spacing.
Then there's Calibre (which besides a reader is a full-fledged ebook creator, translator between formats, and book library)
A newer one that I haven't tried is Bookworm, made for ElementaryOS but available for others.
If you find anything better, please let us know!
@leadore Will do! I've been using FBReader, and I pretty much have the same feeling as you. I hate the top bar, but enjoy being able to pretty much customize everything else.
Have you looked at Okular?
@Algot I haven't. I'll check it out. Thanks!
