1. Make sure use internal viewer for PDF is unchecked (see attached).
2. Then make sure you have an application setup to open PDF files.

I don't use Linux so step 2 is on you.

Update: what version of calibre are you using? If you didn't install via the binary install described here, upgrade using the binary install.

There was a thread with what seems to me to be a similar problem some time ago.
