babel : cannot read input format (any of them!)

Elodie Salager
Hi everybody,

I've just been trying to install the latest version of openbabel (2.2.3)
on my Mac (10.5.8), using the installer package provided on
http://openbabel.org/wiki/Get_Open_Babel.
The installation goes to the end and tells me it's been installed.

But when trying to convert any type of file, I get this error : "babel:
cannot read input format!"

babel -H returns :
_______
....
The following file formats are recognized:
formats is not a recognized plugin type. Those with instances of
sub-types loaded are:
descriptors
fingerprints
forcefields
loaders
ops

See further specific info and options using -H<format-type>, e.g. -Hcml
_________

Does this mean that the plugin format was not properly installed? What
should I do?
I tried to install an older version of openbabel (2.1.1) that works for
my colleague but the installer detects the newer version and prevents me
from installing the older one...
Also, I noticed that babel -V returns :"Open Babel 2.2.1 -- Mar  1 2009
-- 19:20:41" instead of 2.2.3....

Thanks a lot for your help!

Please run the following commands:
uname -a
which babel
ls -l /usr/local/bin/babel

I'm obviously surprised that you had problems with the Mac package,  
since I compile it the same way for myself. :-) But I'll see if I can  
figure out what's happening.

Thanks,
-Geoff
