In the last couple of versions I didn't test the droplet because I'm working on a cross-platform GUI. I'll do some testing tomorrow, if you are in a hurry you can fire up the Terminal and install Pillow (pip install Pillow), and then call

Code:
python ./kcc/comic2ebook.py -p K4 filename.cbr
assuming you have all the stuff in the REQUIREMENTS section of the README.
Let me know if you need further help!

No, it's not normal, it means that conversion had some errors but I didn't add error reporting, yet
Try now with this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/Ki...er_osx_2.1.zip

PS: for PW the correct profile is "KHD" but now I've set full-text labels

Can you report the structure tree of the comic folder, or provide me the original file so I can do some testing?

That file converted successfully on my machine
Here's the output: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/03.mobi

I fixed a couple of issues with filenames today, can you checkout the latest version and tell me if it works for you?

OS X: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/Ki...er_osx_2.3.zip
Win64: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/Ki...-amd64_2.3.zip

Many thanks!

It is still the same on my Mac. I recorded a small screen capture so you can see the errors. I've open once the cbr file and after that opened it as a folder also. Hope it helps and thank you for your work.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9nekqtw2bf...0Converter.mov

PS. If lets say the conversion is successful, where should i look for the output mobi file?

I noticed the issue with folders, should have fixed in latest release:
OS X: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/Ki...er_osx_2.4.zip
Win64: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/Ki...-amd64_2.4.zip
Also, the "file not found" errors could mean that KCC cannot launch unrar and kindlegen, are you sure you placed them under /usr/local/bin ?

Conversion being successful you should find a new .epub and .mobi files alongside the source ones!
