Calibre using wine

Hi,

I have installed Calibre using wine 1.3.22 . The program is not usable since adding/converting ebooks is not working.

Running wine calibre-debug -g I get the following error:

Exception in thread Thread-4:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "threading.py", line 530, in __bootstrap_inner
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\ipc\server.py", line 221, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\ipc\server.py", line 139, in launch_worker
CriticalError: Failed to launch worker process:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\ipc\server.py", line 149, in do_launch
File "multiprocessing\connection.py", line 121, in accept
File "multiprocessing\connection.py", line 373, in deliver_challenge
IOError: [Errno 233] Pipe not connected

It seems to me a bug with python.
Firstly, I installed Python 2.7 and then 3.2... Still the same problem.

I even deleted the wine directory and i installed calibre WITHOUT python and I still get the same error!!!!!!!!

Also, did anyone manage to work with calibre on wine?


Any help is appreciated in fixing my problem,

Thanks
A

1. This probably shouldn't be under the recipes forum.
2. Why are you installing under wine? Calibre runs natively on linux.

Why oh Why are you using Wine?
There is a calibre version for Linux (that runs faster,better than Windows, too.)

Use the command line install found on the Calibre Linux download page (DO not bother with any version in the repositories...OLD/Stale...)
