The scope of this little project is simple: run a calibre ebook server off one of my Raspberry Pi 4 units. This particular Pi is running Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS, so if yours is running something else, adjust the commands appropriately and as needed. I prefer the headless ease of use with Ubuntu Server, but whatever distro you choose ought to be fine. I just wanted to save resources on my Pi, since running an X server still costs horsepower, and my Pi has other tasks it needs to do.

I decided to write all of this down for two…
