Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:11130


Used Plugin Installer to download a python plugin from repository into the QGIS-created directory. Plugin Manager then can't find that directory. There seems to be an extra slash in the path...

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 3, in ?
File "/Users/Ted/.qgis//python/plugins/geoprocessing/+init+.py", line 3, in ?
from geoprocessing import Geoprocessing
ImportError: cannot import name Geoprocessing

Does this happen with all plugins or with Geoprocessing plugin?

(the extra slash in the path shouldn't have any effect)

#2 Updated by tgwong - almost 16 years ago

Happens with any plugin in that directory.

This happens with both the GeoProcessing, FindByAttr and SpatialOperations plugins on my Windows Machine with Windows version of 1.0.0 preview II. I also struggled with plugins on preview I but did not pay much attention to it at that time.

Below is typical error text from pop-up window:

Couldn't load plugin geoprocessing due an error when calling its classFactory() method

#4 Updated by Martin Dobias over 15 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

The original bug has been fixed already (python's module cache wasn't updated).

lhbecker: this is because those plugins have not been updated to recent changes in QGIS. These problems will go away in 1.0 that will check whether the plugin is compatible or not.
