Even more interesting stuff:
My results above were in KDE, admittedly not the primary desktop environment for Fedora. So I switched over to a GNOME Desktop and I got the following
Code:
[mykel@ramses ~]$ calibre-debug -e test.py 
gnome-open: /opt/calibre/lib/libz.so.1: no version information available (required by /lib64/libgio-2.0.so.0)
[mykel@ramses ~]$ Couldn't load XPCOM.
This produced no browser, as expected.

Code:
[mykel@ramses ~]$ calibre-debug -e test2.py 
[mykel@ramses ~]$
This produced a browser, as expected.

From the code above, we can expect that since it can't find libz in calibre, maybe it should find it in the filesystem?
Code:
mykel@ramses ~]$ sudo yum whatprovides /lib64/libz.so.1
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
zlib-1.2.5-2.fc14.x86_64 : The zlib compression and decompression library
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /lib64/libz.so.1



zlib-1.2.5-2.fc14.x86_64 : The zlib compression and decompression library
Repo        : installed
Matched from:
Other       : Provides-match: /lib64/libz.so.1
[mykel@ramses ~]$ ll /lib64/libz.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 13 Jan 24 02:31 /lib64/libz.so.1 -> libz.so.1.2.5
[mykel@ramses ~]$ ll /lib64/libz.so.1.2.5
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 95872 Jun 17  2010 /lib64/libz.so.1.2.5
[mykel@ramses ~]$
As you can see, the package that provides libz is installed and the file is available, at least to the operating system. Why KDE didn't state the issue on the command line is a mystery to me, but so many things about KDE are.

I have some experience with Python, but essentially none with Calibre's custom-built system so I'm afraid I would need help debugging this any further.

Was this using plugin 1.4.10 which came out 15 minutes ago?

Smashing success! I will now proceed with tainting GoodReads with my selections!

However, based on the errors I was getting, should I report the anomalous behavior as a bug?

No. It works now, correct?

Sorry. I was unclear.

The new version of the goodreads plugin solves my issue. @kiwidude is unarguably the bomb.

The remaining question isn't about the plugin. It's about the plugin environment. The webbrowser.open call should have worked but doesn't. More precisely, it does not run on a 64-bit Fedora box using a non-RPM distribution of Calibre. Beyond that, I'm uncertain.

The webbrowser.open behavior is likely a fringe issue, but just because a bug doesn't affect a number of people doesn't mean it shouldn't be reported. Along with that, it might not be a bug. It's possible that this is a known limitation within the plugin environment. Given that I don't work with the calibre code, it's probable that the reporting should fall to @kiwidude since he has far greater context to share than I do. Also, @kiwidude might not think it particularly worthy of reporting and if that's the case, I accept his evaluation. I was just offering to do the scut work of entering the issue if the situation warrants it, which I believe it does.

I understand better now. My impression was that since Kiwidude found a wrapper within calibre for dealing with this problem that it was more a question of documentation to ensure developers use the correct call for opening a web browser across platforms.

I concur with you if Kiwidude thinks this needs to be corrected or better documented he would be in the best position to effect the needed change/clarification.

Several months ago when I did the rewrite of the Search the Internet plugin Kovid did suggest to me to change to using open_url(). However he didn't say why and I found that I had problems using certain url's with it. As I had a todo list a mile long (why is it that it still is that long now?) I didn't have time to figure out the solution so I took the "if it ain't broke don't fix it approach".

I figured out the answers to my issues to apply it to the other plugins at around 3am when you posted last night (using QUrl.fromEncoded() to support URLs which already have been encoded, and prefix with 'file:///' if opening local files) so for me the issue is done with. Kovid is presumably already aware of the issue given he doesn't use webbrowser anywhere in the Calibre codebase.

Thanks for your help in confirming the problem/workaround. There was a Linux user who had posted on the Search the Internet complaining about it stopping working for them after a Linux upgrade so I would guess this may fix things for them too.

Hi Kiwidude:

First, the update seems to have fixed the error I was getting when adding new books that have not been linked previously in Gr. Second, a question for you, is there a way when using the plugin to tell which books have not been linked yet?? I am trying to figure out if any books are missing their link prior to running the download shelves feature.

See the first post in this thread for instructions on how to add a custom column. I have a goodreads column with a tick indicating it has an id.

You can also do a search like:
identifiers:goodreads:false

Thank you the column will work perfectly. Is the plugin the only thing in Calibre that will add the goodreads id??

No, the Goodreads metadata download plugin can add it now too. Either way though that means it is "linked", but it won't tell you whether a book is on a shelf or not if you were attempting to use the field in that way.

No, I do not need the shelf info, I already have a column for that but I was running into problems downloading my shelves because of unlinked books, so I needed a way to fix the links before going to the download shelves portion.

I've never bothered with plugins, but when I saw this I had to have it.
Installed and I'm trying to figure out how to use it.

Thanks for your work!
