Re: LazyLibrarian: Automate your ebook/author collection

Hi, I just installed this on my Synology ds1010+ NAS. Actually hacked up SuperZebulon's Headphones .spk for these NASes so that it would install LazyLibrarian instead. I thought that would be the hard part! Now that it's running, I do have a few issues/suggestions.

1) I can get it to download books, but it doesn't seem to do any post processing. If I manually process under the Books tab, it moves books to my end location. Unfortunately the lazylibrarian user seems to be the only account with access to some of the files, especially the metadata. Am I missing something like a permissions setting?

2) If I search for a book by title, the only option is to add by author. I then still have to drill through that author, select the book I want and set it to Wanted status. Shouldn't there be an add by title option? Another part of this issue is that if I do a title search, for at least one book, once I've added the author, the book I'm looking for doesn't show up in the list, where it did when I did a title search. The book, for the record, is Shadows in Flight, by Orson Scott Card. I only see some kind of Enhanced edition, not the regular book.

3) It would be nice to be able to add a search for any book with a partial name match. For example, a book series that has the same starting title, and just has a different sub-title, if that makes sense.

4) I don't see any audiobook support. Is that something that is planned?

5) Last one, I promise! Any chance you could add script running after post processing? I'd love to call a Calibre library update after a book is added.

Thanks for your hard work!

Thanks

I love the idea of this program! Thank you so much for putting in the time to make it.

However, I can't seem to get it to work properly.

It does start when my server (running Zentyal2,2/Ubuntu 10.04) starts. yay!

But when I go to add an author it will initially pull a list of books by that author. I select a few books, then I hit the go button. After that, things go wonky.

I get this at the top of the page:


Robert Heinlein
None

(Fetching information for this author ...)


Totalbooks: None

and the page keeps refreshing w/o ever adding anything. And there is no book list.

I'm almost POSITIVE this is a permissions issue, but I haven't a clue how to fix it.

Any help is appreciated. :)

You said "now". Was everything running well for you before? If so, what changed?

Yes, everything was fine before. To my knowledge, nothing changed on my end. Sick beard, couch potato and headphones all still work fine.

I also have a problem with this. Can't seem to get it working at all actually.

I enter an Authors name in the top right (eg, Stephen King). It displays a whole bunch of his books on the screen after that, with checkmarks after each one, but no Submit, or Go, or whatever button.

In the top left there's a drop down box with "Author Add" in it. I select a book, and click Add next to Author Add, at which point I get the same as the guys above (nothing essentially). However, in the Python log window it shows:

Code: Select all

Did you reboot maybe? That was all I did.

I wiped all the librarian info off my system, did a complete reinstall, and am getting the same thing. I'm going to try emailing the dev to see if he is still working on this.
