Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:21501


I'm getting two SSL errors on startup - I'm ignoring them both upon startup to get QGIS up and running. The first one that pops up is complaining the Authentification System is Disabled because the QCA's OpenSSL Plugin is missing. I can't find a plugin of that type (but haven't checked experimental. Once QGIS is up I can go to Settings -> Options and crash QGIS.

#1 Updated by Giuseppe Sucameli over 8 years ago

It's not a QGIS plugin, but a QCA one. On Ubuntu just install libqca2-plugin-ossl :

sudo apt-get install libqca2-plugin-ossl

BTW the crash shouldn't happen.

#2 Updated by Randal Hale over 8 years ago

Did the update and only received the first menu which is the "Custom certificate Configuration". Somehow that needs to be hidden or something without that being the first thing a user sees. It's confusing.

Crashing stopped also with the libqca2-plugin-ossl piece being installed. I can now go to settings -> options and all is good.

Should be fixed with issue #13507 commits. Please verify.

#5 Updated by Larry Shaffer over 8 years ago

The commit I noted should fix the crash when the plugin is missing. It will not help install the missing plugin, which the packager/user needs to manage.
