[libprs500] problem converting a couple of LIT's

I've been using libprs500 for about a week or so and I've successfully converted a few books from LIT to LRF. I just bought two non-DRM LIT's (the first two volumes in a series) from Fictionwise and tried to convert them, but something's wrong. When I add the books to the library, libprs500 displays the entire pathname where the books are located, instead of just the title. When I try to convert them, the process fails and prints spew like this:

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'lower'
Failed to perform job: Convert book:C:/<pathname snipped>.lit
Detailed traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "libprs500\gui2\jobs.pyo", line 97, in run
File "libprs500\ebooks\lrf\any\convert_from.pyo", line 140, in main
File "libprs500\ebooks\lrf\any\convert_from.pyo", line 117, in process_file
File "libprs500\ebooks\lrf\lit\convert_from.pyo", line 63, in process_file
File "libprs500\ebooks\metadata\opf.pyo", line 118, in __init__
File "libprs500\ebooks\metadata\opf.pyo", line 188, in get_isbn
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'lower'

Is this a problem with the formatting of the books, or is it a bug with libprs500?

Ah, such a simple solution, and yet it didn't occur to me to see if there was a newer version. Thanks very much! Terrific program, by the way. I have yet to try it as a replacement for Sony's ebook library program, but even just using it as a conversion tool, it's become indispensable.

One other thing...whenever I go to to the libprs500 website, Internet Explorer complains that there's a problem with the site's security certificate and recommends that I don't go there. Normally I would heed the words of IE, but since libprs500 has such a good reputation on these forums, I ignore the warning...though I thought I'd at least mention it.

Yeah I use a self-signed certificate, that means that communication between your computer and the server is encrypted but your computer has no way of confirming that my server is actually kovidgoyal.net

Does 0.4.27 allow sorting of books in collections?

If it is I cant get it to work in 0.4.27?

I have 5 books and I have edited the meta data so they are in one series and I have then selected 'book 1' book 2' etc for the 5 books and I can not get them to show in the correct order? I have tried sorting by author and title and whilst the books are next to each other they are not in order.

can you explain how to do this kovid? thanks.

It sorts according to series order automatically. For any other kind of sorting just add the books one by one in the order you want them

It doesnt though Kovid, the books I have numbered in a series are not showing in order!

can I just confirm i am talking about they are not showing in order in LibPRS.

5, 4, 2, 3, 1 is the order they show in if i sort by author, if I filter so only books from that series are showing I get them in 2, 1, 5, 3, 4.

??

yes thats right, I cant check on the reader as its a christmas present from my wife so once I tested it was working it got packed away!

Its in the LibPRS GUI that I cant get them to show in order. I know in the first version of LibPRS (0.4.24) I tried they also didnt go in order on the reader but you said that was fixed in .25 which is great but I havent been able to test that.

Hmm I'd have to think about how to implement this. Do I do a subsort on the author sort, or do I add another column that shows series and implement sorting on that.

In any case, open a ticket for this and I'll get it done. Sorting on the reader itself is implemented in .25

Thanks Kovid, I think you have plenty of screen space to add a 'series' column AND I think thats the way it would have to be done... after all some series have multiple authors, Take the star wars novels for example ove 50 books in that series with many different authors.


Thanks again

Stu

Just to confirm series order in the reader itself now works perfectly.
