Calibre version for 32 bit Porteus

Post#1 by grizzly8u » 30 Aug 2017, 15:23

Where could I find a Calibre version that would work in 32 bit Porteus environment. I see calibre 1.48 by Falcony. Where could I find it?

These two posts were splitted and moved into its own thread. The intervention was not on topic.

Thanks.

Grizzi also bumped messages to my PM. Strange, but PM isn't working for me. Reply stuck in Outbox and still not sent.

Answer here :) Yes, have working Calibre and its depends - for Porteus 32 v.3.1/
All modules are in FIDOSlax stable branch - if you download iso (the last is http://mirror.tochlab.net/pub/fidoslax/ ... le-x86.iso) - u got it in porteus/program dir.

Menu in Fluxbox is Right button of mous on desktop, then submenu (Standard)>(E-Book Management Calibre )

If you click in it - all modules will be automatically loaded and then Calibre started.

To see what modules u need check:
cat /usr/bin/calibre.sh

Calibre is complex program set which have many depends most of which have to be build on target porteus only - and for qt and python version you currently have.

That's normal. Reply stays in Outbox until receiver reads it.

The problem, as always, is Python. This is not a serious language... :fool:

I'm a Noob when it comes to Porteus/Slax. I'm a little confused about the install process. I successfully got 1.4.8 from the iso. I converted it to an xzm and it shows up in the directory but no joy when trying to execute. A little padlock appears on the file in the file manager. I'm relatively familiar with the terminal and have been using Lubuntu for a long time but this is a little different. Any directions are greatly appreciated.

have you tried

Code: Select all

usm -g calibre
this should find some the deps at least if not the python ones..
the arch package certainly has lots of deps(37):
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/comm ... 6/calibre/ :0

oop here's probly a better indicator (beyond python and qt5)
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/ ... ch=calibre
This requires: optipng, podofo, apsw, cssselect, cssutils, dnspython, lxml, mechanize, msgpack-python, netifaces, psutil, regex, PyQt5, python-dateutil, Pygments, html5-parser

I appreciate everyone's input but I discovered this while trying to get through all the dependencies, etc. This link gives the exact code to install a version that works with 32 bit or 64 bit machines: https://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux. The following code works perfectly per their instruction: sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.py | sudo python -c "import sys; main=lambda:sys.stderr.write('Download failed\n'); exec(sys.stdin.read()); main()"

Thanks to everyone! I'm up and running!!!
