    Default Calibre will not startup

    Hello, I just installed Calibre, but it doesn't start. It just gives the waiting clock for a moment, and then the pointer again. Does anyone know how I can get this program to work?

    Thanks in advance, Frank

    Something missing no doubt. Run calibre in a terminal window and see what error messages show.

    Hi,

    as root: "zypper install python-qt4" should help.
