OpenSUSE :: Unable To Run Calibre (E-Book Reader)

Feb 22, 2011

Using openSUSE 11.3 (64-bit), KDE environment. I am very, very new and inexperienced with Linux... I would like to download and read some e-books using my desktop PC. I poked around the Internet with Google and found several recommendations for an e-book reader called Calibre. So I found it in the openSUSE repository and installed v. 0.6.53-3.3.1 using YaST2. But the darned thing does not seem to work -- I click on the icon and nothing happens!!

Software :: Book Reader Program With Light Colored Smooth Background

Oct 22, 2010

I'm a big book lover so I read a lot. On windows I used Alreader for it's incredible handyness & it had a smooth lite brown background color. So it was easier for my eyes to read books in rtf, txt & so on formats instead of the default white background which is very annoying. Can you please suggest me a software like that for linux?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install The Calibre

Jan 28, 2011

I installed 10.10 on this (new) system a couple of months ago. Haven't had it attached to the network for a couple of months (for viewing documents) Yesterday I did connect, let Update Manager do its thing (installed ~180MB of updates). Everything went fine. Today, was planning on installing Calibre on this and couldn't remember what version I had installed, so I checked...

> System > About Ubuntu now reports that I have 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) installed. I thought 11.04 wasn't to be released until April 2011.Everything running fine (no obvious changes on the desktop at all)...

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Access Address Book When Clicking On Select In K-mail

Aug 22, 2011

I have recently zypper dupped to opensuse 11.4 from 11.3. My only problem is I am unable to access my address book when I click <select> when sending a new message; only recent addresses show in the window that pops up. Even if I select <all> in the list of choices, only <recent addresses> show up. In the useful tips that appear upon opening K-mail it states that if I click on < folders> then < Mailing list management> I will be able to select and manage all of my address books. But when I click on <folders> the <mailing list management> is faded telling me that it is not enabled. My question is what must I do to enable the mailing list management to be enabled? I have enabled mailman with no help.

OpenSUSE :: Evince Or Acrobat Reader - Default Pdf Reader?

Aug 31, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2, 64 bits. I use Evince from the very beginning. Since a few weeks, when I want to open a .pdf file, Acrobat Reader appears and reads my file. It seems to have become the default reader now. However, I never wanted to change from Evince :this simple program is well enough for me. I tried various ways, but I can't define Evince as my default .pdf reader. How can I make Evince to become my default reader again please ?

Ubuntu One :: Error: Unable To Open Address Book

Jun 13, 2011

When trying to copy my personal address to CouchDB I get this error: Unable to open address book. This address book cannot be opened. This either means that an incorrect URI was entered, or this server is unreachable. Detailed error message: Invalid source

I have been trying (since 10.04!) to sync my Evolution contacts. UbuntuOne seems to be the most promising way of doing that automatically, however, I completely fail at accomplishing this seemingly simple task. I have NEVER been able to successfully back up my address book to UbuntuOne. Note: all other sync works fine. It's just Evolution that is seemingly smarter than I am. Thing I have done to solve the issue:

- Upgraded from 10.04 to 11.04
- All three steps from this article:
- Cuss and swear and roll my eyes, mutter a few unrepeatable curse words about Canonical and their mothers.

None of this has solved my issue.

OpenSUSE :: Where Kmail Address Book Stored

May 27, 2011

I am transferring the contents of my home directory from one computer (KDE 3.5 - openSUSE 11.2) to a new one (KDE 4.6 release 6 - openSUSE 11.4).

I have successfully transferred all my e-mails from Kmail but cannot find the Address Book file to transfer. Please can someone point to where it is stored.

OpenSUSE :: Kmail Filters In KDE 4.4 Do Not See Entries In Address Book

Feb 28, 2010

I just installed kde 4.4 and I noted that a filter I had built before does not work as before. The filter classified incoming mail into a "unknown" folder if the "From" and "To" fields matched "is not in address book". Some messages go to the unknown folder that did not before. Has anybody seen anything related to this? I has a look a kde bugs but could not find this described. The addresses are present in kaddressbook, it seems that kmail does not see them?

OpenSUSE :: Kmail And Address Book Search Function

Jul 28, 2010

When I try to write email, and enter the first few letters of the recipient in the "to:" box, it sometimes but not always autocompletes. i.e., let's say my contact's name is Frederick, his address is e.g. I enter Fred or fred or fre, a couple of addresses come in to the autocomplete drop-down, but not his. After searching all over over to find his address by other means, I start to write it in manually only to find that he IS in my address book (and also in recent addresses), listed under Freddie. I know that the word Freddie is not in his actual address, but what is the point of having a search function if you have to remember the address yourself? In other words surely the drop down search should show display names (as well as any other fields)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Repartitioning Windows Disk In Dual Book 11.4

Sep 10, 2011

i 've an hp laptop with 2 120gb hdds. On hd1 there used to be vista plus the hp recovery partition and hd2 was for storage.When i moved to opensuse 11.1 as the primary OS some 3 years ago, i set it on hd2, with / , /home and swap partitions and left hd1 as is.

I have two questions.
first / seems to be out of space (i tried to install a gcc compiler and i got a warning). Is there anything i can do? Can i resize it on a live system? Can i delete/compress something on it safely?

Second: i currently use windows only for a tv card and a couple of old games so no need for 100 gb on this partition.Is it safe to repartition it? Partitioner says i should not partition on a live system but it appears not to be mounted?
File System:
File System: NTFS
Mount Point:
Label: OS

If i resize it to, say, 40 gb and try to partition the rest, how should i mount it? I get the options /local, tmp and srv. Can i mount it somehow to use it for example for music or downloads storage?

Ubuntu :: Calibre Causes Gnome To Restart?

Feb 9, 2011

Recently I tried to install calibre ebook management software from the Ubuntu Software center and it installed fine as expected, ran fine from the applications menu as expected (for the initial run) went through the wizard and clicked next. All of a sudden I was presented with a login prompt. I thought I must have hit a hot key accidentally, so I logged in and it restarted fresh not like the desktop was locked. So I ran calibre again and it did the same thing. I uninstalled calibre and went about compiling from source, after all of the dependencies were met and it compiled and installed ran it again and it logged me out again.

Ubuntu 10.10
Kernel 2.6.35-25-generic
Gnome 2.32.0
Memory 1GB

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - Which Adobe Reader Must Be Installed

Feb 20, 2010

I have just updated my system from openSuse 11.1 to openSuse 11.2, all is working fine. Now I would like to install the Adobe Reader program downloading it from the official website. I can use Evince to see PDF files... Unfortunately Evince shows strange defects over the images contained in the PDF file (strange white vertical lines and other little things).

I want try to use the original Adobe reader to check if those defects will go away so I can print the document (on Windows the pdf file is displayed perfectly). I have gone to this address to download the latest version:
Adobe - Adobe Reader : For Unix : Adobe Reader 9.3.1 Linux and Solaris update - multiple languages

When I presse the "Download" button I go to another page. In this page I select the 9.3.1 version and then the "enu" directory (I suppose that "enu" stays for "english", I'm right? )
After that I block myself; as I see there are only i386 and i486 version available, but I have the i586 architecture. This means that the Adobe Reader is not available for my Linux system? Maybe I have got the wrong download address?
