Python error when accessing content server with calibredb

I am running Calibre 3.25 on OpenSUSE 15.0 (it's the build from OpenSUSE, not from the Calibre site).

If I try to access the content server from the command-line with Calibre running like this:

/usr/bin/calibredb --with-library=http://localhost:8080/ --username=my_user --password=my_pass add epub/import/my_epub.epub

it fails with a python error:

Code:

I get the same error when doing other commands like "list". I can add books and do list queries from the command-line _without_ Calibre running with no problems.

One note - the system was upgraded from OpenSUSE 42.3 -> 15.0 a couple of weeks ago, and at that point the IP address changed, but the content server is running correctly on the new address.

Removing the distro version and re-installing 3.26.1 fixes this, but then I always get the GTK style errors on startup :-(

Any ideas? Is there packaging info I can pass on the the OpenSUSE maintainers to correct this?

Thanks!

Dan

With distro versions who knows, it could be anything. Most likely an out-of-date package of python-mechanize

As for GTK style errors, ignore them, they are harmless.
