Calibre won't open after update

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 15:52:38 GMT

I tried to install the latest update, but then Calibre would not open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times over the past 2 days, but I keep getting this error message: Traceback (most recent call last): File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 292, in initialize_db_stage2 File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 232, in start_gui File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 250, in initialize File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 330, in init_main_window_mixin File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\actions\", line 32, in init_scheduler File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\dialogs\", line 587, in __init__ File "site-packages\calibre\web\feeds\recipes\", line 148, in __init__ File "site-packages\calibre\web\feeds\recipes\", line 103, in get_builtin_recipe_collection File "src/lxml/lxml.etree.pyx", line 3442, in lxml.etree.parse (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:81716) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 1811, in lxml.etree._parseDocument (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:118635) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 1837, in lxml.etree._parseDocumentFromURL (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:118982) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 1741, in lxml.etree._parseDocFromFile (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:117894) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 1138, in lxml.etree._BaseParser._parseDocFromFile (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:112440) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 595, in lxml.etree._ParserContext._handleParseResultDoc (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:105896) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 706, in lxml.etree._handleParseResult (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:107604) File "src/lxml/parser.pxi", line 646, in lxml.etree._raiseParseError (src\lxml\lxml.etree.c:106750) XMLSyntaxError: None (builtin_recipes.xml, line 0)

calibre 3.x: missing "close all" in tag browser?

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 14:56:14 GMT

With calibre 2.x there was a nice feature "close all items" within the tag browser, please see the attached image for the exact location within the GUI. I found it very helpful when switching between authors, series and tags. With calibre 3.x there seems to be no such feature - at least none I could find at first glance :) Cheers chris

Options not kept

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 13:58:21 GMT

Hello Kovid and all the friends I don't know if it is a bug, but there are many options which are not kept from a session to the next in the conversion pages. I'm using the last version (3.1.1) in French.

Onyx Boox C67ml suddenly frozen and no led charging light

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 13:47:23 GMT

Hi everyone, my c67ml carta2+ suddenly frozen without any charging light at all. It seems like it was dead completely. It was syncing Ankidroid while being charged at that time. Anyone can shed light on this situation? Thanks!

--Manage-users and systemd

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 13:20:03 GMT

Hello there, I am really enjoying using Calibre 3.0: keep up the great work! I am trying to run calibre-server through systemd (Ubuntu 16.04 and Apache2). I have created a couple of users using: ---Quote--- calibre-server --manage-users ---End Quote--- I can manually start calibre-server by using: ---Quote--- calibre-server --url-prefix /calibre --port=8080 --enable-auth /path_to_library ---End Quote--- However I do need to ensure that /path_to_library is owned by me and not root nor www-data. Calibre will then function with no issues. If I try to run it through systemd, however, it continually asks for login details and I cannot get through to the library. This is my file: ---Quote--- #/lib/systemd/system/calibre.service [Unit] Description=Calibre Service [Service] Type=simple PIDFile=/var/run/ ExecStart=/usr/bin/calibre-server \ --max-opds-items=30 \ --max-opds-ungrouped-items=100 \ --url-prefix /calibre \ --port=8080 \ --pidfile=/var/run/ \ --enable-auth \ --log=calibre.log /path_to_library [Install] ---End Quote--- If I run it as --disable-auth it works fine, but without password protection! Is there anything I am doing wrong?

Pocketbook Basic 3- problem with dictionaries.

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 12:01:15 GMT

Hello. I'm new here. I've just bought Pocketbook Basic 3 but I found it's quite hard to insert dictionaries in it. The offer of the official store is rather poor. I got know that I need dictionaries in custom format .pbi but I have no idea how to convert dictionaries to this format. Older tutorials connected with pocketbooks show how to convert to .dict format but I checked it and it doesn;t work on my device. What shoud I do? Is there any solution? Thank you for your help! :D

Stuck with a shop logo as wallpaper.

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 10:51:07 GMT

I have been waiting for over a week, on an answer from the Kobo Helpdesk to remove the logo of the shop in Portugal where I purchased my Kobo Aura One.(FNAC) The request has been escalated as the normal desk couldn't help. The normal option to use the book cover is missing in the settings. Is there a way to wipe the firmware and install a standard version? TIA Wyre

calibre-server: no library

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 10:03:24 GMT

Hi there, Im running calibre-server 3.0 on archlinux I tried to start the server using: calibre-server --port 8001 /path/to/my/flibraryfolder/ If I open the webpage, it says: "Select library...." without any other options or possibilities to select a library from a dropdownmenu or something else... If I start the server without path to my library, it prompts: "no library found" and exits. So, the path seems to be correct, but somehow no entries are shown. Instead, there is this "Select library...." message on the webpage What am I missing? greetings from Germany Joe

Battery Saving Tips

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 04:20:29 GMT

My several years old Galaxy Note 8 tablet battery was rapdily draining to the point where I thought I had to get the battery replaced (if possible). However, as a last resort I reset the tablet to factory default and disabled all apps from updating. . . voila! the tablet's battery life is almost as good as new. Any other battery saving tips out there?

Help showing series info please.

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 01:07:34 GMT

Can some kind person explain in simple terms what I need to do to get series info showing on my Glo HD? I have checked in Calibre that the series info is in the metadata but I dont know how to get it to appear in Kobo. I started to read about plugboards and got totally confused. Is there a simple way to achieve this ? Thanks.

Literary The MR Literary Club 2017-2018 Categories Nominations

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 00:34:14 GMT

It is time to choose the categories that the MR Literary Club will use during our July 2017-June 2018 cycle! *Nominations will be open for six days. Each lit club member may nominate one category.* The category should be one of the following: -From among our previous categories (listed below) -A specific as-yet-unused region or time period (also listed below, and explained below) -A new or altered category, so long as it is approved and is simple and literary with just a title and no special rules to follow To nominate a category, simply post your nomination. *All approved nominations will become categories for our next cycle* with no need for a vote or support from others. * The upcoming year will be special because it’s the last year we will use Region and Time Period in their current forms. We are taking a break from Rotating months until the following year after the current rotating cycle is complete; since we have three more months of Rotating to go that leaves us with nine months of other categories this year. After these nominations are over, we will fill any remaining months with Region and Time Period. We have two as-yet-unused time periods left and seven unused regions. The last month of each of these two categories in the upcoming year will be a ‘Finale’ with no usual starter vote and will instead have eligible every remaining option available to nominate books from. We may get through both time periods but we will almost certainly have a mixed Region Finale. Even though any extra months will be filled with Region and Time Period, you may still choose to use your nomination to nominate Region or Time Period if you’d like to ensure one more month of either before they’re completed. As well, if you’d like to ensure a specific region or time period gets its own month (and isn’t included in a ‘mixed’ Finale month) you may choose to use your nomination to nominate a specific as-yet-unused region or time period listed below. If a specific region or time period is thus nominated, when that month comes along we won’t have a starter vote since the winning option will have already been chosen. * *You may nominate a category that’s already been nominated* if you’d like to see it more than once during the next year. This includes not only Region and Time Period but all regular categories. The only exception is that specific regions and time periods can’t be nominated more than once (for example, ‘Region’ can be nominated more than once but ‘Region- Japan’ can only be nominated once). *You may change your nomination at any time* before nominations are over, so there isn’t a need to wait and see what others nominate first. This means that even after you nominate a category, once you see how other nominations are shaping up you may decide to nominate a different category and that is fine. You can change your nomination as many times as you like, but please do it by posting a new post rather than editing an existing one. When nominations are over I will use the last eligible posted nomination of each member. Since these nominations are going straight to categories for next year, only those who have participated in the club at least semi-regularly recently-ish are eligible to nominate. If anyone is uncertain you can ask us here or PM me but if you’ve volunteered for a rotating month in the last year or so, or if you’ve discussed a few books with us in the last half year or so, or if you’re one of our longstanding members returning, then you’re fine to go. * For reference, eligible previous categories and unused regions and time periods are listed below. Rotating and Lottery, the only two other categories we’ve [...]

Aura Aura One Battery Life: Is this normal?

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 23:42:10 GMT

I know that the Aura One is not known for stellar battery life, but mine seems particularly bad. I've been tracking reading time since my last charge and I'm at about 8 1/2 hours reading time and 37% charge. (I remember that David Rothman on Teleread reported 15 hours on his Aura One, so I've been using that as a comparison.) WiFi is off. 12% backlighting and auto lighting is off. 5 minute auto off. I rarely use the night lighting setting (mostly because I forget about it). The battery percentage also does some pretty impressive drops. The last one was 49% to 37% in about 15 minutes. I know that battery indicators can be dodgy, but big drops like that happen just about every discharge cycle. Is this normal, or do you think I have a bad unit? After my last experience with Kobo Customer Support, I don't want to go down that road unless I have to. Am I missing something on battery management?
