I am trying to run mothur through the R terminal and received the following error:

mothur > lefse(shared=egg_lefse.shared,, inputdir=mothur/)
Setting input directories to:

You did not provide a class, using location_stat.

Comparing rejegg-egg:

has occurred in the Utils class function mothurConvert-int. Please contact Pat Schloss at, and be sure to include the mothur.logFile with your inquiry

Might you be able to help?
Thank you!
