Calibre won't start up

Hi all,
I have Kubuntu 10.10 installed on my laptop. Recently Calibre worked fine but a few days ago Calibre won't start up. When i start up in a terminal i get the following error back;
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 19, in <module>
sys.exit(main())
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 321, in main
app, opts, args, actions = init_qt(args)
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 40, in init_qt
from calibre.gui2.ui import Main
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/ui.py", line 31, in <module>
from calibre.gui2.widgets import ProgressIndicator
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/widgets.py", line 26, in <module>
from calibre.gui2.progress_indicator import ProgressIndicator as _ProgressIndicator
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/progress_indicator/__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
pi_error)
RuntimeError: Failed to load the Progress Indicator plugin: the sip module implements API v8.0 but the progress_indicator module requires API v7.1

Your distribution needs to rebuild calibre, looks like they upgraded python-sip and didn't rebuild calibre against it or something. I would file a bug report with kubuntu.

Alternatively you can uninstall your distribution install of calibre (since it isn't supported by Kovid) and install calibre via the binary install described here.
