    PDB File Reader


    I have been scouring the internet looking for a good solution to reading .pdb eBooks on Linux.
    It seems that there isn't one.
    Could you perhaps recommend a good app to either convert the file easily into something readable or (more preferably) an app that can read them?

    If you are unable to find any native Linux pdb readers that you like, you could consider running a windows app under WINE. I'm thinking yBook and iSilo might work with WINE.

    Back when I was using Windows I got a copy of eReader, the proprietary software used to read ebooks in the pdb format.
    That is a last resort. I don't want to have to do that.
    What's this I see around about pdb files in OOo?

    I've heard that Plucker will work with PDB files and Linux, but I've never tried it so can't say for sure:

    Plucker: The best HTML and ebook reader for Palm and Windows mobile devices

    Maybe someone else will jump in with some suggestions.
