Ubuntu Column management

Hi!

I'm new to calibre (and linux).
In the more 'indepth' tutorial video there is described how to hide and arrange your columns.

I use the Ubuntu / Linux version and I can only hide columns in the Preferences menue not in real time in the normal window (the right klick just doesn't work)

And the most importand part:
I can't arrange my columns as I like. Because I can't drag them like in the video.

If I try to drag, I just aktivate always the 'sort up or down' in the column where I want to drag the other column.

Does this just not exist under linux?
Or do you know of a special way to handle this problem even if it is more complicated? I can't even find an option to arrange them as I like in Preferences (exept for the hideing)


Thanks for your help and time,

S.Raven

What version of Calibre are you using?
Installed from packages or the newest and greatest from here:
http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux
Just copy and paste the command line to the terminal.

I am using Calibre under Mint Linux 9.0 - Isadora that is based on Ubuntu 10.4 and everything works very well. Draging columns, animated covers browser, drag & drop of files from file manager to various parts of GUI, automatic download of covers. Everything.

What version of Ubuntu are you using?

You're using an older calibre version.

As has already been pointed out you need to upgrade. Uninstall your current version then follow the directions here to do a binary install of the current version.

It Worked!

Thanks!

But I didn't deinstall my old one because I didn't want to loose everything I had konfiguered jet. And it looks like it just uses the konfigurations of my old calibre.
So I wont be able to deinstall it but thats not that importand...

Thanks for your fast help!
And I'm still a bit skared of that terminal ^^

The configuration is saved independently of the installation. When you uninstall calibre with Ubuntu it will not remove your settings.
