Error when converting from EPUB to PDF

Hello,

I get an error when converting from EPUB to PDF. I get this both when I convert from the GUI of Calibre and when I convert from the command line with "ebook-convert". From the command line interface I get the following error message:

Creating PDF Output...
67% Creating PDF Output
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/ebooks/pdf/writer.py", line 167, in _render_html
self._render_book()
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/ebooks/pdf/writer.py", line 148, in _render_book
self._write()
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/ebooks/pdf/writer.py", line 196, in _write
outPDF = PdfFileWriter(title=self.metadata.title, author=self.metadata.author)
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'title'



Then the program writes a PDF file to the disk, but it can't be opened.

I use Lubuntu 11.04 and Calibre 0.7.44 from the repositories. The conversion is on RSS recipes downloaded by Calibre.

Do not use repository versions, use the official calibre binary.

Ubuntu calibre package is broken. Horribly broken. They ship calibre in a broken state routinely. There has never been a 100% fully working version of calibre packaged and shipped by Ubuntu.
