I am installing the plugin directly after downloading without unpacking it.
I'm not sure what would cause those errors, but try this.

Run this to remove the plugin:
Code:
calibre-customize -r 'Create Kindle Collections'
Check the plugins directory for any sign of 'Create Kindle Collections' and remove the files (in case you manually copied it there).

Run this to add the plugin and post the output:
Code:
calibre-customize -a create_kindle_collections_plugin.zip
You can also use "calibre-customize -l" to list the plugins to see if its there.

I have two Python versions on my comp - V2.6 and 2.7. Could not be the problem there ?

Go to the calibre config directory, delete the plugins sub directory and then re-add the plugin.

I deleted the Calibre2\plugins direcory but now the Calibre won't start:
c:\Program Files\Calibre2>calibre-customize -a d:\kos\create_kindle_collections_plugin.zip
Python function terminated unexpectedly
No module named winutil (Error Code: 1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site.py", line 103, in main
File "site.py", line 84, in run_entry_point
File "site-packages\calibre\__init__.py", line 17, in <module>
File "site-packages\calibre\constants.py", line 95, in <module>
Exception: No module named winutil
So I manually added winutil.pyd, icu.pyd and magick.pyd to the plugin directory and tried to add the Create Kindle Collection which passed without error but after running calibre-customize -l, the result was as usual:
c:\Program Files\Calibre2>calibre-customize -l

You've got a corrupted calibre install. Uninstall, delete c:\program files\calibre2 and the plugins directory, then re-install.

uninstalling does not affect your library.

That did it, thanks! FYI, and for anyone else interested, I'm using XP. I had turned on the system folder and hidden files, but nothing showed - typing F:/system in the address box brought up the system folder and collections.json immediately.


Edited to add: However, now I'm getting an error when I try to run Manage Collections from the toolbar:

calibre, version 0.7.45
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>AttributeError</b>:'BooksModel' object has no attribute 'get_collections_with_ids'

AttributeError: 'BooksModel' object has no attribute 'get_collections_with_ids'

I've uninstalled the plugin, restarted Calibre, re-installed the plugin, restarted Calibre again, but no change.

Thanks!

Go back into your toolbar preferences > Toolbar when a device is connected:

Remove "manage collections" and replace it with "Create Kindle Collections". I believe "manage collections" is a Sony function.

Ouch. I removed the Calibre with its directories and reinstalled - and I am where I've been before - Error message on double-clicking the plugin and no item in the customize dialog. :-(((


To be sure that I don't do anything wrong way:
- Kindle not connected
- I open Preferences/Advanced/Plugins
- click on the "Add a new plugin" button
- select the "create_kindle_collections_plugin.zip" from the place where I downloaded it
.. there is a confirmation dialog "are you sure ...." - I choose Yes
Calibre displays success dialog
- I click on Apply and restart Calibre by Ctrl-R

- I open Preferences/Interface/Customize the toolbar and select The main toolbar when a device is connected

- There is NO Create Kindle Collection item

Running calibre-customize -l from the command line reports "zipimport.ZipImportError: not a Zip file"

I am at my loss ...

Try removing it again, and installing one of the other plugins from the Plugin index page - to see if they behave any differently - e.g. Search the Internet since it uses a toolbar icon (but add it to the menu 'when device is not connected')

The same result - zip error and no icon.

I've tried to install an example plugin from here: http://calibre-ebook.com/user_manual...o-world-plugin

Double-clicking on it doesn't report error and reports "does not need customization" .

But it does not seem to work either - according to the author it should change Publisher to Hello,world during book conversion which is not the case

Mira,

This may be unrelated, but do you still have Kindelabra (and the python components that were packaged with it) installed on your computer? I remember that you had problems getting it to work. I'm wondering if this is somehow connected.

I came across the same idea - that it is something with Python installation. But, unfortunatelly, I am not a Pythonist and I am not able to determine the source of the problem.

Anyway, I'll try to install the plugin on a notebook where is only Python 2.6 and will se if it works there and then I'll publish the results here.
