Updating Issue on Ubuntu

I've been running Calibre on Ubuntu for probably about 8 months now. I was having no problems updating to the latest version until recently. I was installing the normal distro up until 0.5.11 at which time I decided to compile myself because I wanted to get CBZ files to convert on to my reader. Anyways after a while I finally got it to compile correctly. Now I'm able to download the most recent version and compile without error but it doesn't seem to update the version. It always still shows I'm on version .0.5.11 and not the current version. Do I need to some how uninstall the complied version first? Also if I install the main distro it also still shows 0.5.11 afterward. I'm not sure what I need to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!!!

I get the following

#!/bin/sh
export CALIBRE_CX_EXE=calibre
path=`readlink -e $0`
base=`dirname $path`
loader=$base/loader
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$base:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
$loader "$@"

Thanks for your help.

That's the launcher for the binary version not the install from source. Did you run

sudo python setup.py develop
or
sudo python setup.py install

in the source tree?

I ran sudo python setup.py install

I ran these commands you had posted in the terminal.

wget -O- http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/downlo...-0.5.14.tar.gz | tar xvz
cd calibre*
python setup.py build && sudo python setup.py install
sudo calibre_postinstall

Thanks again for your help.

Thanks for your help I figured out the problem. I don't know why I didn't notice it before.

Thanks
