Auto Import Books on headless Server

I am currently running an ubuntu headless server that has calibre running on it just fine.

However, Calibre does not appear to be automagically importing my books from the folder I specified in the Auto add section of the add books menu.

Do I have to log in & run the Calibre gui for this to function? Or is there a way to make it completely automated?

Hopefully I'm just missing something.

You need to have a working inotify system on linux for auto add to work. And note that auto add only works when you run the calibre GUI, not only the calibre-server.

So, in short, I can't do what I wish. That's sad. Maybe it will come in later.

I'm ok with having to occasionally remote in & manually import books. I may even look at running a script to do it, if the command line options will support this.

Any info on that, perhaps?
