ebook-meta error - "No module named podofo"

I am only trying to change metadata of a .pdf file with ebook-meta

I get this error:
"Unavailable: No module named podofo"


Using ubuntu 10.10; various combinations of the command give same result


Code:
jim@jim-laptop:~/Desktop/read-CHINA$ ebook-meta Evergreen.pdf -a NYT -t "EverGreen Solar goes to China"
and I get this result:

Code:
Original metadata::
	Title               : Evergreen
	Author(s)           : Unknown
	Book Producer       : cairo 1.7.4 (http://cairographics.org)
Failed to set metadata for u'EverGreen Solar goes to China'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/customize/ui.py", line 358, in set_file_type_metadata
    plugin.set_metadata(stream, mi, ftype.lower().strip())
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/customize/builtins.py", line 382, in set_metadata
    set_metadata(stream, mi)
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/ebooks/metadata/pdf.py", line 63, in set_metadata
    return podofo_set_metadata(stream, mi)
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/utils/podofo/__init__.py", line 107, in set_metadata
    raise Unavailable(podofo_err)
Unavailable: No module named podofo

Changed metadata::
	Title               : Evergreen
	Author(s)           : Unknown
	Book Producer       : cairo 1.7.4 (http://cairographics.org)
Thanks for any thoughts.

Uninstall calibre and use the binary calibre install as described on the calibre website.

Your system is missing the podofo library.
