From this page http://okular.kde.org/formats.php Okular supports epub files, how can I open them in Arch?
kular(15937)/kdecore (trader) KMimeTypeTrader::query: query for mimeType "application/epub+zip" , "okular/Generator" : returning 0 offers okular(15937)/okular (app) Okular::Document::openDocument: No plugin for mimetype '"application/epub+zip"'.
By the message it looks like it might just be a missing library (what is the name of the epub library? found some references to a 'libepub' on a Ubuntu site but there is no package named like so in Arch, I have the package ebook-tools installed).
Perhaps there is a problem with the KDE configuration, I'm not to familiar with the KDE internals but I tried to run the command: kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental to rebuild the system configuration cache and /usr/bin/update-desktop-database

I should have found the thread myself.
The issue is fixed now in KDE 4.13.2 and both mobi and epub works
upgrading kdegraphics-okular New optional dependencies for kdegraphics-okular ebook-tools: mobi and epub support [installed]
It looks like this issue is still happening for mobi format.
I have kdegraphics-okular-14.12.3-2 installed. I also have both ebook-tools-0.2.2-2 and kdegraphics-mobipocket-14.12.3-1 installed. I tried okular-frameworks-git from AUR but the result is the same:
okular(1376)/okular (app) Okular::Document::openDocument: No plugin for mimetype '"application/x-mobipocket-ebook"'.
