    Default problem starting calibre

    I have not used calibre in some time, and I went to start it up today and got the following
    error:

    Code:
    george@tribaltrekker:~> calibre
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 20, in <module>
    sys.exit(main())
    File "/usr/lib64/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 363, in main
    app, opts, args, actions = init_qt(args)
    File "/usr/lib64/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 50, in init_qt
    from calibre.gui2.ui import Main
    File "/usr/lib64/calibre/calibre/gui2/ui.py", line 31, in <module>
    from calibre.gui2.widgets import ProgressIndicator
    File "/usr/lib64/calibre/calibre/gui2/widgets.py", line 23, in <module>
    from calibre.gui2.progress_indicator import ProgressIndicator as _ProgressIndicator
    File "/usr/lib64/calibre/calibre/gui2/progress_indicator/__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
    pi_error)
    RuntimeError: Failed to load the Progress Indicator plugin: the sip module implements API v9.0
    but the progress_indicator module requires API v8.1
    george@tribaltrekker:~> rpm -q calibre
    calibre-0.8.63-1.1.1.x86_64
    In searching the forums I noticed that someone had this same problem back in 2011 but the problem
    was never resolved.

    This only happens on my desktop and not on my laptop. I am using version 0.8.63-1.1.1.x86-64 on
    both of them. I tried to uninstall and reinstall calibre and it did not change a thing.

    Any ideas on how to solve this one?

    Well, I found another thread and it said to just use the python installer from the calibre
    website. That did the trick

    Before doing that, remember to uninstall the callibre rpm from the
    distribution. Also you must be aware that the upstream calibre may have
    security issues, concerning local user to root escalation.

    Calibre and setuid

    I've been using the calibre from the Documentation:Tools repo with no
    problems; latest version (0.9.8), and YAST takes care of the dependencies.

    I've had trouble running calibre from the Opensuse repo in KDE 4.9.3.xx
    Removed and then installed the binary file from the Calibre website and works fine.

    The version in the Opensuse repo is quite old now also.
    When you install from the binary it drags in everything it needs locally - independent of your system.
