comment How to download ebook form Kindle to my PC?
Sorry I got confused. You said one needs both K4PC AND Calibre. However K4PC is available only for Windows, which I don't have. So would you please complete your answer regarding my situation?

I tried to use the link but don't know how to save the booked that I've bought to my harddrive. So got stocked before doing anything to remove DRM.

William, I added Handbrake's ppa, and the lines to sources.list, but after update, it could not install it: 'E: Package handbrake has no installation candidate'. Any ideas?

I have tried a couple of suggested ffmpeg commands but they were all somehow faulty, apparently due to changes in ffmpeg syntax
