How to install a Plugin to Calibre?

In this post, I am going to show you how to install a Plugin to Calibre. You will need this to use some methods of iSmooth Blog DRM Removal.

Clibre Plugins Installation

Actually, it is very easy so you shouldn't have to worry because I am going to explain it in 3 Simple Steps.

Step 1: Open Calibre Preferences.

Preferences icon is found in the upper right hand corner of the main navigation bar. you have to choose "Change calibre behavior" from the menu in the Picture Below.

Calibre Preferences

Do NOT click on "Get plugins to enhance calibre" because this is reserved for official Calibre Plugins.

Step 2: Click on the Plugins Button.

Once the Preferences screen is open scroll to the bottom under the Advanced Tab and click on Plugins Button.

Step 3: Browse for Plugin and add it.

Use the "Load plugin from file" button to select the plugin's zip file. Once you have your plugin selected and the file path is in the long box, click "add".


If installation was successful you would see your plugin under File Type Plugins and you are done for now you can go back to your DRM-Removal article.

After you have downloaded iSmoothBlog-DRM-Removal-Plugins.zip unzip it and you should find 5 other zip files which are the files (plugins) you will load on calibre.

Do NOT extract the Plugin's zip file because it won't work. All you have to do is choosing the Zipped File to install the plugin!
