Installation problems

I built avogadro but get a segfault when I try to run. Is the problem that
it is not finding the “translations?” Any suggestions? Thanks,

It prints the following:

avogadro

About to test OpenGL capabilities.

Dear Avogadro users,

I am writing since I have had a problem during Avogadro installation.

As you can see below:

CMake Error at cmake/modules/FindLinguist.cmake:47 (message):
Could NOT find lconvert

Do you know how can I fix this problem?

Thanks a lot

Regards

Azzurra

CMake Error at cmake/modules/FindLinguist.cmake:47 (message):
Could NOT find convert

You either don’t have Qt development packages installed, or at least Qt 4.5 available (which introduced lconvert).

Hope that helps,
-Geoff

No, it’s definitely not a problem about translations. It’d just leave everything in English. I’m guessing from the messages that you’re running on Linux. What flavor and/or version? Do you know what compiler you used?

Thanks very much,
-Geoff

Could you run this from gdb and post the backtrace? I haven’t seen
this, and there is nothing obvious in the output you posted. Linux
version/distro and compiler would be great as Geoff requested.

I finally got it to run. The problem was in my openbabel installation, as I
found by gdb. The problem was multiple versions of libraries and or trying
to use the intel compilers. I switched to gnu and made sure openbabel
worked OK before installing avogadro, and that worked. Thank you for your
help.
