plasTeX doesn't load LaTeX packages

P: n/a
Hello,

first of all:
Is this the right place to ask plastek-related
questions?

I'm trying to make plastex work on my Ubuntu Dapper
Drake. For LaTeX, I have the all-in-one package
tetex.

Everything is ok with this simple helloword code:

\documentclass{article}
\author{Au. Thor}
\title{Title}
\date{\today}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Hello World!
\end{document}

but if I try to load any package, like in

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{babel,a4,amsfonts,amsmath,amsthm,amssy mb}
\author{Au. Thor}
\title{Title}
\date{\today}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Hello World!
\end{document}

I got a lot of errors:

$ plastex helloworld.tex
plasTeX version 0.6

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/plasTeX/Packages/article.pyc
)

What is wrong?

Best regards,
