OverDrive Media Console (OMC) is not natively supported in Linux. However, you can install the Windows version of OMC under Wine.
You can download Wine from WineHQ. To install OMC under Wine, please see the Wine project's App Database (appDB) entry for OMC.
Wine is a program that allows Windows programs to run in a Linux environment. Think of it as a translator that convert the Windows commands from OMC into commands that Linux can understand and use. For more information, please see the Wine user guide.
If you'd like to borrow and read eBooks from your library on your computer, you can use OverDrive Read or Kindle Cloud Reader.
Note: Kindle Books are currently available for US libraries only.
