Can't detect Cybook Gen 3

I have never been able to get Calibre to detect my Cybook. I have just updated to 0.6.54 since upgrading ubuntu to 10.04(Lucid)
This is the output of calibre-debug -d

Devices possibly connected: Cybook Gen 3 / Opus Device Interface,
Trying to open Cybook Gen 3 / Opus Device Interface ... failed
Opening of the following devices failed

Ubuntu's calibre packages break device automounting. uninstall them and install the calibre binary.

Thanks Kovid,
but I was using the binary, from your calibre downloads page.

I have had to revert my system to Ubuntu Hardy, because I have the "mouse & keyboard freezing" problem in Lucid, so I will have to reinstall the 0.6.29 version of calibre from sourceforge.

I will continue copying my files manually to the Cybook, as ubuntu has no problem recognizing it.
Maybe when I get my system back to normal I will have time to try troubleshooting this problem again. I like calibre and I would really like to get it working properly.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Hey.

I'm having the same problem, using the latest binaries on Ubuntu 64bit.

Only if no sd card is in my Cybook Gen3, though. Once I insert it Calibre detects it. Mixes up the internal memory and the sd card, so if I export a book to the Reader it ends up on the SD card and vice versa. Also, it shows the free space for the reader on the card A icon (in the tooltips) and the other way round...

Not really a big issue, but I usually wouldn't use a SD card if it wasn't for that bug...

calibre-debug -d shows (without sd card):
Trying to open Cybook Gen 3 / Opus Device Interface ... failed
Opening of the following devices failed
<calibre.devices.cybook.driver.CYBOOK object at 0x35c68d0>
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py", line 637, in open
File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py", line 607, in open_linux
DeviceError: Unable to detect the CYBOOK disk drive. Your kernel is probably exporting a deprecated version of SYSFS.

Might be my device, though. Acts a bit strange lately...

Cheers,
Makkus
