Linux - covers/metadata search not working

When I try to search for metadata or covers, I never get any results at all. At first I thought I was searching obscure or mislabeled books, but even with well known classics it never produces anything. What's more, with the metadata searches at least it frequently comes back negative so quickly I suspect it isn't really looking at all.

Has anyone else encountered this, or found out how to get around it?

If it's useful, I'm on Fedora 15, Calibre 0.8.

Thanks!

If you have not installed via the binary install here, you might want to consider it since none of the distribution versions of calibre are supported.

Also in your next post specific examples are a must. Book titles, ISBN etc...

It was for EVERY book, but no matter. Updating from the link you posted solved the problem.

Cheers.
