Feature request #12526
Improve error message when connecting to a postgres database with no postgis extension

Currently, when trying to connect to a postgres database with no postgis extension installed, QGIS gives an "Connection failed: check settings and try again" message. Makes the user think he got something wrong with the host, port, or user settings... while he just needs to run "CREATE EXTENSION postgis;" to make everything work !
A message saying that the connection was successful but the postgis extension missing would be much more informative.
