Calibre Issues

First off, LOVE Calibre. Great program.

Now for the problems. I am running 5.6 but the problems started about 3 versions back. I'm getting shutdowns even tho' I leave it running. Also, it no longer fetches the news for me unless I force it manually. I'm tired of restarting it and forcing the downloads. Any ideas what's up? I do have an older version without all the problems I can revert back to but surely I can't be the only one having problems like this.

Can you start calibre from a terminal with the command

Code:
calibre-debug -g
Let it run and when it crashes post whatever you see in the terminal

Okay I did that but I got an error message that says "link hasn't been detected" twice. Other than that it's running and if/when it goes down again I'll let you know.

You'll probably need to be in the Calibre directory.

Another thing I forgot to mention. Around the same time that the other issues started, I began getting 3 files for each download instead of one. I got the mobi file for my Kindle, a jpg file and an opf file. I only want the mobi file on my device and on my pc so I delete the other two. I was just wondering tho' why all of a sudden I'm getting the extra files? I know the jpg is the cover file but have no clue what the opf is. Should I be getting 3 files on each news download now?

Are you using Send to device or save to disk to send books to your Kindle?

Don't delete the files on your computer. Just use "send to device" to send the books to your Kindle.

It may be that you have set the option of your new calibre to save to disk option than send to device.

I do both. First I save to disk, single file, then I either send it to main memory or if it's working for me (now), I let the program email them to my device. I see no problem in deleting the extra files on my computer because after they've been sent to my device (the mobi files) I don't need the extra ones. I'm just saving to my pc as a back up.

I do have it configured to save to disk, but I did all along. Now I also email them.
