I installed calibre manually under Debian Linux Squeeze. Compare to its functionality, the mime-type problem of calibre drives me crazy! It associates almost everything with itself! Almost everything failed if I try to open some file using xdg-open in a terminal. What a idiot design!

Please note that the "code" formatting should be used only to wrap actual code or console commands; to just give emphasis you could use italics or bold text. – Sekhemty May 2 '13 at 9:41
sudo python /usr/bin/calibre-uninstall
sudo rm -rf /opt/calibre

I installed calibre manually, that is to say, by hand, not through apt. – Exaos Apr 24 '12 at 11:31
Due to the fact Calibre updates so often, Calibre recommends a script they publish to install. They recommend against apt and package installers. – Keltari May 2 '13 at 11:45
