calibredb

Greetings,

I've finally decided to dig in to calibredb. However, whenever I run calibredb, no matter what options or even just the command alone, I get:

error using calibredb

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/calibredb", line 19, in <module>
sys.exit(main())
File "/mnt/installs/iomari/work/calibre/src/calibre/library/cli.py", line 1187, in main
return command(args[2:], dbpath)
File "/mnt/installs/iomari/work/calibre/src/calibre/library/cli.py", line 547, in command_export
do_export(get_db(dbpath, opts), ids, dir, opts)
File "/mnt/installs/iomari/work/calibre/src/calibre/library/cli.py", line 50, in get_db
dbpath = os.path.abspath(dbpath)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/posixpath.py", line 343, in abspath
if not isabs(path):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/posixpath.py", line 53, in isabs
return s.startswith('/')
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith'


I'm using the latest source and have been using it with no probs for some time now.

My OS is opensuse 11.4.

Any ideas anyone?

Is this using the Calibre distirubtion from the Calibre site, or the one that came with OpenSuse? I am only asking as I thought the official Calibre distribution from the Calibre site went into /opt/calibre? Also, you do not mentione the Calibre version you are trying to use - with its frequent update cycle that can be important.

From the calibre site. I gave up on the opensuse version many moons ago.

That error indicates you haven't got a saved library path, use the --with-library option.

thanks. I was using root from the command line which is not what I use on the gui.
