    calibre problem.

    When I open calibre I am greeted with this..



    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/ui.py", line 397, in start_smartdevice
        self.iactions['Connect Share'].set_smartdevice_action_state()
      File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/actions/device.py", line 243, in set_smartdevice_action_state
        all_ips = get_all_ip_addresses()
      File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/dialogs/smartdevice.py", line 31, in get_all_ip_addresses
        for iface in get_all_ips().itervalues():
      File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/utils/mdns.py", line 15, in get_all_ips
        import netifaces
    ImportError: No module named netifaces
    Any fix?

    I cannot find python-interfaces .. Am I supposed to add the PPA from somewhere ?

    Re: calibre problem.

    I still have no luck running Calibre, I've tried installing the latest version, and running it from a terminal with:
    LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 calibre

    but it still crashes Ubuntu 12.10 and throws me out to the log in screen. It worked fine in 12.04, any ideas?

    Re: calibre problem.

    did you run this command to install calibre?
    Code:
    sudo python -c "import sys; py3 = sys.version_info[0] > 2; u = __import__('urllib.request' if py3 else 'urllib', fromlist=1); exec(u.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read()); main()"
    And did you take the default location where to install it?

    The next question is what hardware are you using? Is it a Mac or PC?
