failure to launch

I could not get calibre working in ubuntu 8.04 so I installed 8.10 and installed the dependency files but now, calibre asks me for a folder in which to keep books. I set it to a folder but it only exits.
I have read other posts and I have deleted the metadata.db and the global.py from .config/calibre.
after I do this calibre asks me to chose, again, a folder to install books. and repeats...

nothing happens, the terminal comes back blank. calibre just exits and I am at the shell ready for another command.

I installed it using the commands you give for linux ubuntu.. I tried to follow all instructions..
but, since I couldn't get it to work there I just downloaded vmware and isntalled winxp and calibre and now problem solved, i guess.
