Device: Sony PRS-300
Fedora 14 + Sony PRS-300: calibre doesn't work


I upgraded from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 especially to get the new version of Calibre!

Unfortunately it doesn't work!

Under Preferences I choose "Debug Device Detection" and I get this:

Version: 0.7.20
Looking for POCKETBOOK301
Looking for POCKETBOOK360
Looking for PRS505
(1356, 798, 553, 'Sony', 'Sony Digital Book Reader', '0800461000DFA1E8')
Looking for README
Looking for S60
Looking for TECLAST_K3
Looking for THEBOOK
Devices possibly connected: SONY Device Interface,
Trying to open SONY Device Interface ... failed

File "/usr/lib64/calibre/calibre/devices/usbms/", line 593, in
_('Could not find mount helper: %s.')%cmd[0])
DeviceError: Could not find mount helper: calibre-mount-helper.

I checked, and there is no file called calibre-mount-helper anywhere.

What am I doing wrong?
