Conversion OSErrno1 Operation not permitted?

I've never had a problem with conversion before. When I choose a book to convert, I get this message: OSError:[Errno 1] Operation not permitted. Thank you for looking at the log to help diagnose what mess I've surely caused

Edited to add: This error message comes up no matter which book I select in any library. I'm continuing to search through the Conversion forum, but haven't run into this problem yet. Thank you so much!

Here is the log:

That error indicates the permissions are likely incorrect on the calibre configuration directory /Users/Home/Library/Preferences/calibre

Incidentally is your username really Home?

You miss nothing Kovid! No, my username isn't Home, hope that's okay!

I'm not sure if this is what you've suggested, but I ran "repair disk permissions" with Disk Utility and didn't see a problem with Calibre.

Thank you for your help!

You need to check the ownership and permissions on that directory and its subdirectories. Unfortunately not being a mac user I cant recall how to do that using the OS X gui, but in a terminal you can reset permissions using the chown and chmod commands.

Alternatively, just rename that directory and calibre will create a new one for you with hopefully the correct permissions. But note that doing so means you lose all calibre settings/plugins.
