Hello,

I've just installed CALM (2.0.28) with all companion plugins

I restarted calibre

When I run CALM, is select 2 libaries but plugin stubbornly tells me no libraries are slected

Even when selecting all (which does add the check mark), the tool still says "no library selected"

A picture is worth 1000 words.

However, since you have provided neither, I can only surmise that it is not just CALM who is being stubborn. Clearly it does not like something about those 2 particular Source Library paths, and is consistently disallowing them. That should give you a very strong hint that you are trying to do something forbidden.

You have not added "CALM" to their paths, have you? Target Libraries are CALM libraries, not Source Libraries. Forbidden.

You did not put your Source Libraries on your Desktop, did you? One user made the second Source Library a child of the first Source Library that was on his Desktop, and did not believe that there was anything wrong about that. You can find that post in this same thread. Using the Desktop for your Source Libraries is forbidden. It is also a poor idea in general for any Calibre library.

As the Source Library Tab ToolTips state, the checkmarks are only used to tell CALM exactly which Source Libraries you want included in the very next Consolidation. They have nothing to do with selecting your Source Libraries.

Not CALM specific, but I'm continuing to theme calibre plugins and I saw that some of your plugins icons are not themable. It's the same thing that was happening with Job Spy (The path to the user's local resources/images folder in common_utils.py has to be changed).

It's the case with:
  • Author Book Count
  • Author Book Count Hierarchy
  • Consolidate All Library Metadata
  • Drop Search Results
  • English Noun Frequency
  • Library Codes
  • Media File Importer
  • Multi Column Search
  • Quarantine And Scrub
  • Zotero Metadata Importer

Nothing urgent, but maybe you can correct it next time you update them?

All have been changed and uploaded. Audit Log needed no changes since it used Job Spy as a template for a new GUI plug-in. The rest used ABC that I wrote in 2014 as a template, and I built ABC by scrounging around for example code. Apparently the example of common_utils.py that I picked in early 2014 to use with ABC was incomplete viz a viz themes, although the rest of it was fine. Anyway, let me know of anything further that needs to be done to support what you are doing.

Once again, thanks for the quick update! That's all that is needed as far as I'm concerned

Thanks for your excellent utility - I may have missed this in discussions, but can you please confirm that although CALM can collect Series from source libraries, it can not write them back as it can for tags. Thanks. Maybe there is a way round with custom columns?

Mrparsnip:

Your understanding is correct. As the Original Post says:

Spoiler:
Application Functions and Features:

[1] Consolidate a snapshot of all of the standard and custom column metadata for all of your Calibre Libraries into a temporary CALM Target Library.

[2] View the consolidated metadata of all of your books from all of your Calibre Libraries simultaneously;

[3] Standardize Tags, Genres, Identifiers and most Custom Columns centrally in the snapshot CALM Target Library using CALM's Metadata Tools;

[4] Propagate the standardized Tags, Genres, Identifiers and most Custom Columns from the snapshot CALM Target Library back to the 'real' Source Libraries.


All books with the identical Series should, in my opinion, be stored in the identical Source Library. Hence, their maintenance should be performed directly within their Source Library, and not within the consolidated snapshot CALM Target Library.

Thanks for the reply. I agree that they should end up in the same Source library - but I have a temporary library where I collect and tag/rename everything before moving to the final libraries. Series is not such a big deal to keep under control as tags anyway (only one per book). I just need to remember to change/add the series once I move them to the final library, rather than in CALM.
