      I am so sorry...

      I found the mistake and everything is working well now...

      My Mistake was that I copied your "calibre.service" content and only replaced the xxx.... But you have drive-by- and I have dev-disk-by-label-xxx
      Replaced it now and it´s ok

      OMG really really sorry for that :(

    • YAAAAY! Good to hear everything is working now.

      Checkout import und conversion script to add books to your library. You should use those to prevent a messed up database.

      Edit: The import script as posted right now just simply imports everything in the 'import' folder. On my server, I run this script with Cron once a day and delete the content of 'import' after finished import. This prevents double import of books and I simply have to place new books in this folder, everything else is done automaticly. I can post this later on today.

      I´ve created both scripts according to my needs so far.

    • If you configured 'notification' in OMV Web GUI, an email notification can be sent when import is done as well

      Shell-Script

      1. IFS=$'\n'
      2. /usr/bin/calibredb add -r --with-library=/srv/dev-disk-by-xxx/calibre/ /srv/dev-disk-by-xxx/import/
      3. rm -R /srv/dev-disk-by-xxx/import/*
      4. echo "Import of your favourite ebooks done, Sir!" | mailx -s "Import of your favourite ebooks done, Sir!" "your-email-address@xxx.xxx"

      replace all 'xxx' and 'your-email-address' with your corresponding setup. If you do not want to get an email, just delete the line or comment it out by adding a '#' at the beginning of this line.

      Create a Cron job through OMV-Web GUI with tonus 'daily' as user 'root' and

      Source Code

      1. /home/calibre/calibre_import.sh
      If you want to import and convert them at the same time

      Source Code

      1. /home/calibre/calibre_import.sh && /home/calibre/calibre_conversion.sh
      To test your install and scripts, get a free EPUB ebook at Projekt Gutenberg :D

    • Did you check your running calibre by accessing it through webbrowser?

      I would not recommend to pass your calibre port through your router, due to security issues. You could run calibre with a user and password request as well, but this would not work with Kindle. If you want to grant access to others, setup VPN.

    • I have checked calibre by browsing trough my books on Safari

      EXCELLENT!!!!!
      Regarding calibre i will use it first only local May in future about vpn as you recommend:)

      Some addition: How can I rename a book after adding it to the library?
      Saw right now that calibre imported also .files
      Do you know why?

      I have instead of 244 now 488 books (half are books and the other hals are .files with max. 4kb)
