eBook Format Mobi to Epub

| Comments

If you have a “mobi” format eBook file and want to convert it to “epub” format like me, you can use the software “Calibre” to do it, which is available on Linux/Mac/Windows.

For Ubuntu, run the following commands to install Calibre and convert the format.

2
sudo apt-get intall calibre
ebook-convert your_ebook.mobi your_ebook.epub

There are also online services which can do the same thing like here. You can use such services if you don’t want to install a software to do it.

VirtualBox Error ‘NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)’

| Comments

Yesterday I got the “NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)” error when starting a VM instance in VirtualBox. Reinstalling didn’t work and the error was still there. The real problem is the security permission. Go to “System Preferences -> Security & Privacy”, confirm the permission needed by VirtualBox, then the problem is solved.
