Unhappy getting lots of unhanded exceptions at startup

Hi,

I had installed calibre, set up my library path, etc. and added a bunch of books to the library. (Ubuntu 9.04)

Then for various unrelated reasons I had to uninstall everything, and had to delete the directory where my metadata db was kept - and now after I reinstalled when I start up I get hundreds of this error:

u'pubdate'
Detailed traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/calibre/gui2/library.py", line 554, in headerData
return QVariant(self.headers[self.column_map[section]])
KeyError: u'pubdate'

and the cpu is maxed out.

What didn't get cleaned up correctly?

Ned

You have some sort of conflict caused by two differing versions of calibre installed. One from 0.5 series and one from 0.6 series

Delete the folder /opt/calibre and /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/calibre

These folders may be different on your system. Use locate to find them

Here's what I know at this point.

I uninstalled the ubuntu release packages, and tried installing the 'unsupported' way - then it all started working.

So I gather that there's something going on in the ubuntu 9.04 package that is installing something bad, while the contents of the unsupported package is ok.

Anyway, thanks for the help - I think I'm back up and running again with your great product!

Cheers,

Ned
