There might be a problem with ADT on your machine. Are you able to read ind.pdb 
using 'File' -> 'Read Molecule'? Please start ADT with '-i', perform the same 
steps, and see if there are any error messages printed.

Also, MGLTools-1.5.0-Linux-x86-Install is using Python 2.5, included with 
installer, instead of Python 2.4.3 as you wrote.
