Description William 2016-09-06 11:13:30 UTC
Editing an ebook (epub in my case, probably all types though) doesn't work, you get a pop up with an error message instead.

Seems to be this bug: 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/calibre/+bug/1615824
Corrected by this patch:
https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibre/commit/0e11f80cf6b17a4c526dd9b5ed6abb3d020bfadc

TLDR; PyQt incompatibility.

I just cp'd calibre-2.63.0.ebuild as calibre-2.66.0.ebuild in a local overlay and things are fixed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. right on ebook, click edit
2. in the new window, on the left column, double click on a file to edit
3. look at the pop up error message with anger hoping it'll go away
Actual Results:  
no book editing

Expected Results:  
book editing

This is on ~amd64 installation with dev-python/PyQt5-5.7
