Hi everyone,

Has anyone faced this problem using calibre, tried searching for hours now but unable to find any one with similar problem.
Would really appreciate any tips.

It only happens when converting pdf to lrf... any way the error i get is:


ConversionError: 'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Failed to perform job: Convert book:PPK-Block2
Detailed traceback:

Make sure the calibre install directory is in your PATH. A simple re-install should do the trick. Otherwise google will tell you how to edit the PATH variable in windows.

Same problem here. Reinstalled and checked that calibre's directory is on the Path variable on Windows. Still not working.

It was working fine before upgrading from libprs500 to Calibre.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the quick response. Tried what you told me first reinstalling then i checked the PATH and it seemed to be correct. So since my error was relating to "C:\Program" and should have been "C:\Program Files" thought the space was the problem, and so installed the program again under C:\calibre and it worked.

Thumbs up for the program by the way, great work. As I feel the program has helped me alot and you provide it for free and free support i am willing to Donate for such a program, so not forcing people to pay money is also good as some people might not be able to afford it, i think this program is worth a donation and so will make a contribution. Just keep up the good work...

I have a different problem, on my Mac. I converted some PDFs and didn't get an error but evidently no content was converted, which froze my 505 when I tried to open the documents. When I tried looking at the documents on calibre, I got this kind of error:

'PageTree' object has no attribute '_contents'
Detailed traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "calibre/gui2/lrf_renderer/main.pyo", line 177, in parsed
File "calibre/gui2/lrf_renderer/document.pyo", line 471, in render
File "calibre/ebooks/lrf/objects.pyo", line 186, in __iter__
AttributeError: 'PageTree' object has no attribute '_contents'

that happens sometimes with DRMed PDF files as calibre respects the copying restrictions on the PDF.

Thanks Badr for posting your fix. I had the same problem today, used your fix, and it worked. YAY.

Kovid, you are on my heroes list. Thank you so much for calibre. I recommended it in my Sony Reader review on Amazon and just straightened out a problem with PayPal so that I could donate. Two issues solved in one hour!

I'm not sure that these are DRMd since they are being posted on a password-protected website for a class and some of them actually convert correctly. But at this point I will just keep them as PDFs since there are a lot of readings and I have to take them to Italy with me (that's where the class will be).
