    Default Calibre will not launch, qml debugging is enabled

    I can no longer launch calibre. I get the following output launching from console:

    Code:
    QML debugging is enabled. Only use this in a safe environment.
    python2: siplib.c:12299: sipEnumType_alloc: Assertion `sipTypeIsEnum(currentType)' failed.
    Aborted (core dumped)
    Googling either of the messages has not yielded any helpful information. As far as I know, I have not enabled qml debugging in any application. I have tried installing different versions of calibre, from different repos, but all give the same message.

    I really have no idea what is going on; has anyone else seen this? Any help on how to get calibre working would be very much appreciated.

    Repos 6, 8 and 10 are the ones I've tried installing Calibre from.

    It is better to install Calibre directly from their webpage, the versions from the different repos often do not work.

    Thanks, I'll give that a try.

    This is what I have ( TWoss is the alias for the TW oss repo )
    Code:
    Information for package calibre:
    --------------------------------
    Repository     : TWoss                        
    Name           : calibre                      
    Version        : 2.69.0-1.2                   
    Arch           : x86_64                       
    Vendor         : openSUSE

    Having a look at the repo list, a mix of packages from different build versions might be an issue too.

    This seems to have been the cause. I did a 'switch packages' to the TW OSS repo, and Calibre is working again. Thanks for the advice.
