Hello Carlos

Thanks for care about this, but even when i try it as root then with
sudo, i get the same result.

Probably it´s because i´m using a i686
instead of an x64.

wget -nv -O-

Bad Luck, Michael


The download link says «calibre has a binary install that includes
private versions of all its dependencies. It runs on 32-bit and 64-bit
Intel compatible machines. To install or upgrade, simply copy paste the
following command into a terminal and press Enter:»

<http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux>


Please open a terminal (xterm, konsole, whatever), and start 'mc'. If
you don't have it, install it. It is a very powerful text mode file browser.

Navigate with it to "/opt/calibre/lib*/". Go to any library and tap F3
(view). In my case I see this:

/opt/calibre/lib/libpng16.so.16: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64,
version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, BuildID[sha1]=46efe43e75721f15035e5d
0000000000000000 A PNG16_0
w _ITM_deregisterTMCloneTable
w _ITM_registerTMCloneTable

which says that it is a 64 bit library. Check yours. Several libraries,
not one.

Now, about the error message you post above, I can not read it. Please
repeat this way:

LANG=C calibre

or this:

LANG=en_US.UTF-8 calibre


This way the messages will be in English and we can all read them.


Also, if you are running the KDE desktop, you can try with another
desktop. Anyone that is not Qt based.
