Hi all,

I'm running QGIS 2.4.0 on Ubuntu trusty but the Python support is missing due to the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 1, in
ImportError: No module named sip

Version de Python :
2.7.6 (default, Mar 22 2014, 23:03:41) 
[GCC 4.8.2]

Version de QGIS :
2.4.0-Chugiak 'Chugiak', exported

Chemin vers Python :
['/usr/share/qgis/python', u'/home/sylvain/.qgis2/python', u'/home/sylvain/.qgis2/python/plugins', '/usr/share/qgis/python/plugins', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/plat-x86_64-linux-gnu', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-tk', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-old', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages']

I have installed the stock Python and sip packages:

python:amd64/trusty 2.7.5-5ubuntu3 uptodate
python2.7-dev:amd64/trusty 2.7.6-8 uptodate
python-dev:amd64/trusty 2.7.5-5ubuntu3 uptodate
python-sip:amd64/trusty 4.15.5-1build1 uptodate

It appears there has been a change in the sip API since 4.15 and it breaks python-qgis.

I tried to recompile the whole chain but that failed miserable as well :(

I assume this is related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qgis/+bug/1103458

I'm tracing it here so that other folks may see what will happen to this issue. As it stands, most plugins are unusable unfortunately.

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Well, I reinstalled Ubuntu trusty entirely and used the official repositories from the QGis website again... and it worked well this time. I must have had some dependencie issues.
