Avogadro, OB and git

Hi all.

I finally have a working version of the coming 0.9
version on my Intel Macbook.

Using: any OB version, cmake-2.6.2, a very recent
Eigen2 (v 908291), and latest github for Avogadro.

Before deleting all of the following, I always got
"Reading molecule file failed".

This afternoon, I did the folowing:
1)“sudo rm -Rf /Applications/Avogadro.app/ /usr/local/include/
avogadro/ /usr/local/share/avogadro/ /usr/local/lib/avogadro /usr/
local/include/openbabel-2.0/ /usr/local/bin/babel /usr/local/lib/
openbabel”;
2)reinstall OB (v2819);
3)deleted the preference files;
4)configured Avo with:
“cmake -DOPENBABEL2_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/local/include/openbabel-2.0/ -
DOPENBABEL2_LIBRARIES=/usr/local/lib/libopenbabel.dylib -
DOPENBABEL2_VERSION_MET=true …”;
5)make and sudo make install.

For reasons that completely escape my understanding, these steps
did it and I can now read and save files.

Cheers,

Louis

Dear Louis,

I’m glad to know you got things to work – I was worried that I didn’t
know what the problem would be!

Hopefully you’ll continue to be able to update without seeing the
problem again.

Cheers,
