X11 crashes on ebook-view/ebook-edit

Hi all,

I am having weird problems with Calibre's internal editor and viewer since last system updates (Lubuntu 18.04 LTS)

Until then Calibre was working as always - completely flawless but now the only kind of E-Book I am able to open are pure TEXT files (calibre opens them in Leafpad...)

Any other (FB2, MOBI, EPUB) will cause immediate crash of X, causing complete data loss on any other running application... After couple of seconds I will see my login again

It seems to me the problem is not in Calibre itself but rather in the respective ebook-editor and ebook-viewer since they are causing the same crash when called from command prompt
(I tried to call them directly form /usr/bin/ without calibre to no awail)

Any help very much appreciated

best regards

emtcho

Are you running the OFFICIAL calibre site download?
(the distro version is always out of date and subject to distro tweaking )

Thank you very much!

Sometimes it is too easy... i have done apt remove of the distro version and installed the OFFICIAL and it works again...

You saved my day
