Bug Description

I just tried to upgrade from 2.13 to 2.15 - The instal seems to go ok - but I'm not able to start the program on my IMac running osx 10.7.5
When I click on the Icon I can see that its "jumping" but before it comes to show the "big icon" on the screen i stops

I have now installed 2.14 and it works well

Thanks for you great program and happy new year

I'm going to need some information, open Terminal.app and run:

/Applications/calibre.app/Contents/MacOS/calibre

and post the output

(this is with 2.15 installed)

 status incomplete

Changed in calibre:
status: New → Incomplete

Its strange - 2.15 is starting up ok when its initiated from Terminal -
but with this warning : libpng warning: iCCP: Not recognizing known sRGB
profile that has been edited

I doesn't start from the launch bar Š..

Try looking in Console.app to see if anything is printed there when
calibre fails to launch. Also you can try removing it from the dock and
then re-adding (assuming you are launching it from the dock).

It did not work to remove calibre from the dock

Note that this bug only affects OS X 10.7 and 10.8. You can also update OS X to workaround it. Or you can run the following command in Terminal.app to fix calibre 2.15

curl -L https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibre/raw/master/setup/installer/osx/app/site.py > /Applications/calibre.app/Contents/Resources/Python/lib/python2.7/site.py

I posted calibre bug 1407804, and have now re-downloaded and re-installed Calibre 2.15 and it works! Thank you so much for the quick response. I don't know what I'd do without Calibre, and I'm glad to support it.
