Post Calibre and KDE 4.6.5
I tried Calibre from the CR and got the following output:
Steve@mepis-testing:~$ calibre
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 19, in <module>
sys.exit(main())
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 361, in main

from calibre.gui2.progress_indicator import ProgressIndicator as _ProgressIndicator
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/progress_indicator/__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
pi_error)
RuntimeError: Failed to load the Progress Indicator plugin: the sip module implements API v8.0 to v8.1 but the progress_indicator module requires API v7.1

any hints as to how to make it work?

Steve

Hi, KK.

Personally I just DL'd and installed the latest version from the calibre website. It installed and is running fine --no problems whatsoever on Mepis 11.

http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux

Granted, I am not running KDE 4.65, but Kovid Goyal, the Calibre dev, recommends this method instead of using the versions in various distro repos. See if it works for you!

Thanks SB

It works just like it should.

Steve

Sidenote: Maybe the CR version should be updated or removed.

The CR version still works for folks on the stock KDE / Python. Only those who moved to the experimental KDE, or accidentally upgraded their Python when that was in the testing CR will need a rebuilt Calibre.

The downloaded version includes it's dependencies internally so it's more portable (but larger) - similar to the way Firefox tarballs are done.
