[SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

Well I have updated python-pyqt to python-pyqt4 but now calibre doesn't work anymore (crashes on startup)
I've also opened a bug (#35840)

Here's the output of the command 'calibre'

$ calibre
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 20, in <module>
    sys.exit(main())
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 415, in main
    app, opts, args, actions = init_qt(args)
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 85, in init_qt
    from calibre.gui2.ui import Main
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/ui.py", line 31, in <module>
    from calibre.gui2.widgets import ProgressIndicator
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/widgets.py", line 21, in <module>
    from calibre.gui2.progress_indicator import ProgressIndicator as _ProgressIndicator
  File "/usr/lib/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 v10.0 but the progress_indicator module requires API v9.2

May someone help me, please?

recompile calibre (fetch from abs, makepkg, install)

Hi,

I have the same problem. I'm sorry but I did not understand what you are meaning.

I've did a 'pacman -Rs calibre' followed by a 'pacman -S calibre' without success.
Is it the same as you suggested or I should delete some kind of cached files and force a 'rebuild' in some way?

Could you guide me?

Regards

You need to get the sourcecode and create the package: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Build_System

Re: [SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

I have a similar problem with the python kdebindings and I hope here is the right place to post: after the latest update I get:

from PyKDE4.kdecore import KCmdLineArgs, ki18n, KAboutData
RuntimeError: the sip module implements API v10.0 but the PyKDE4.kdecore module requires API v9.2

and after downgrading python2-sip i get:

from PyQt4 import Qt, QtGui, QtCore
RuntimeError: the sip module implements API v9.0 to v9.2 but the PyQt4.QtGui module requires API v10.0

right.. smile

I am a relative newbie to arch, should I flag the kdebindings-python2 package (in extra) as out of date ?

Re: [SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

Broken package equals bug in bugtracker. (change in pkgrel) Out of Date is only for new software versions. (change in pkgver)

Re: [SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

thanks for pointing that out !

solved my problem (temporarily ?) by installing the version in KDE-unstable:

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/kde- … s-python2/

(and apologies for hijacking this thread if my issue was unrelated after all)

I have the same problem. Just updated to calibre-0.9.36-1 and it does not start. I think it's a slightly different issue. This is my traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 19, in <module>
    from calibre.gui2.main import main
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/__init__.py", line 7, in <module>
    from PyQt4.Qt import (QVariant, QFileInfo, QObject, SIGNAL, QBuffer, Qt,
ImportError: cannot import name QVariant

Any help?

thanks

Re: [SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

I tried uninstalling (pacman -Rs calibre) and re-installing and i got the following different traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 19, in <module>
    from calibre.gui2.main import main
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/main.py", line 18, in <module>
    from calibre.library.database2 import LibraryDatabase2
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/library/database2.py", line 18, in <module>
    from calibre.ebooks.metadata.opf2 import metadata_to_opf
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/ebooks/metadata/opf2.py", line 14, in <module>
    from lxml import etree
ImportError: /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2: version `LIBXML2_2.9.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/lxml/etree.so)

Am I missing something?

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

SOLVED! it was the old version of  the libxml2
Shouldn't it be checked into pkgbuild? I had installed the 2.8.0-1

thanks

No. Partial updates are not supported, so you should always have the latest version

well, I agree. What I meant is that the check of correct version of required libs could be performed before upgrading, as almost always happens.

Btw, thanks

Re: [SOLVED] python-pyqt -> python-pyqt4 update breaks calibre

If you always have the latest, what would be the point of having it check the version of the lib?

And your comment was unhelpful.
