In this process did you ever reboot your machine?

Twice once with 7.47 to see if that helped (the basic: Did you reboot :P )

then again when I removed 7.47 and install 7.46 (see that line between 7.47 above )

Thank goodness that wasn't a snake or it would have bit me. I had this exact problem once and can't remember what I did. I think I just waited for the next release.

As a test you could try exiting calibre, moving the configuration directory to another location for safe keeping, then restart calibre. Calibre will create a virgin configuration directory when you start up and point it to your library. If the problem goes away something was corrupted in the old directory.

Good Luck.

You likely have a font on your system that is causing the crash. The only thing unusual about the output settings is that there is a control for font embedding in the LRF output settings

I am on my Ubuntu machine, while I run Memtest86+ on the Windows system. 1 pass complete, but I will grind overnight

I might try you idea in the morning, if no better ideas.

The last font installed was Oct 2010.

fc-cache, fontconfig : You had me stumped until Google clued me that those were Linux commands.
The problem is on my XP system. (Is this an Evil Penguin plot, to make me switch off my XP boxes? )

Run calibre in debug mode you will likely get a bunch of font related error messages that will help you track the problem down.

Wierder.

Spoiler:
Debug mode: <p>You have started calibre in debug mode. After you quit calibre, the debug log will be available in the file: c:\docume~1\shop1\locals~1\temp\tmpo0fdbm.txt<p>Th e log will be displayed automatically.


About 30 seconds after clicking "Output Settings", Calibre crashes. the Calibre-debug log contained the above (spoiler) message.

heading over to the location:
the named file does not exist in the directory
There are a bunch of Calibre... folders there (sample attached).
All are similar, all have the same worker log messages.

that is what I did:
C:\Temp>calibre-debug -g 1>>log.txt 2>&1
That message was from log.txt
the other log (indicated in the log message) did not exist.

Note Starting and Quitting Calibre (in debug mode)
the Temp folder leaves behinf a fresh Calibre.. folder wit 2 'worker..' logs (both empty)

Ah I thought you started it in debug mode via preferences.

Starting via calibre-debug will mean that the log in /tmp is not present, that's normal.

What does:

calibre-debug -c "from calibre.utils.fonts import fontconfig; print fontconfig.find_font_families()"

output

Hmm then it's not the fonts, I'm at a loss in that case. Are you willing to run from source and do some debugging?
