Fileformat issues in latest Avogadro

Moin

Since yesterday my Avogadro can nolonger real file. I am simply getting
the “Cannot open file %1” message.

I am using latest OpenBabel and Avogadro-trunk. Beside --prefix I didn’t use
any configure options for OpenBabel.

I removed my complete builddir (including OpenBabel so that I am sure I am
using the correct OB) and removed all configurationfiles in share/

I am using Qt 4.3.4, GCC 4.2.2 and am having boost installed.

Does anyone have an idea?

Is it possible it’s an openbabel problem? When’s the last time you
updated OB? I am able to read lots of test files here.

It is OpenBabel from trunk (as of 2 hours ago).

What is the easiest way to test OpenBabel?

babel -H

Do you see lots of formats? What about taking a test file you wanted
to read:

babel testfile.cml -osmi

Do you see a SMILES?

Hope that helps,

Wow, this is strange. I do not see a SINGLE fileformat… On my
second machine
I do (there Avogadro works). No clue what is happening…

That’s your problem – if babel doesn’t know about file formats, then
Avogadro won’t.

Usually this is a simple issue of Open Babel not being installed
correctly. Make sure to “make clean; make; sudo make install” again.
That’s usually enough.

Cheers,
