Lightbulb Installing in Debian Squeeze Command Line Only

I'd like to be able to use Calibre to convert books from the command line on my Debian 6.0 Squeeze installation. I'm getting the following error:

ImportError: cannot import name QCoreApplication

I saw some similar threads, but no resolution. Most cases people were told that 'you can't install on Debian Lenny, you'll have to upgrade to squeeze'

Any help would be appreciated

Of course I figure it out AFTER I post this:

apt-get install libqt4-dev
apt-get install imagemagick

got me going on squeeze. This is on a test server, so when I go into production, do I need libqt4-dev or can I just install libqt4?

I'm assuming from here I'll just be able to use ./ebook-convert to take care of all of this. Time to dig in!!

Thanks for your hard work!

There are some notes on running Calibre on a server in the FAQ.
