Gromacs analysis tools for Namd output

Dear NAMD and VMD users,

I want to use the Gromacs analysis tools for analyzing Namd output files
(*.dcd files) I just installed Gromacs 4.5.4 and it works well. In addition
I installed VMD 1.9 and set up
VMD_PLUGIN_PATH=/home/vmd-1.9/plugins/LINUXAMD64/molfile/ (Here it is
located the dcdplugin.so )

I verified that VMD_PLUGIN_PATH is pointing out to the right folder.
However when I run for example

g_rmsf_d -f file.dcd -s file.pdb

I got the following error

The file format of file.dcd is not a known trajectory format to GROMACS.
Please make sure that the file is a trajectory!

GROMACS will now assume it to be a trajectory and will try to open it using
the VMD plug-ins.
This will only work in case the VMD plugins are found and it is a
trajectory format supported by VMD.

No plugin for dcd found

Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to do something else?

Any help and advise will be highly appreciate it

Thanks so much for the help
