Hi,

It might be that your QCA install is somehow borked. To check, you can install qca2-utils, which contains qcatool2 (man page).

Using the qcatool2, issue the following (might be named just qcatool):

# see if key stores can be accessed and listed
qcatool keystore list-stores
# you should see a store labeled 'Sys'
# you may also see a bunch of "Unknown signature value..." lines, which can be ignored, 
#   as I believe those are elliptical curve keys that QCA/Qt4 can't read

# verify you can list the contents of the Sys store
qcatool keystore list Sys

# see qcatool -h for help

Please verify these commands are successful or not.

#4 Updated by Larry Shaffer about 4 years ago

Oh, the error line is qgsauthmanager.cpp:110, which is: QCA::scanForPlugins();

So, with qcatool also try the following, which does the same scan for plugins:

qcatool plugins

Hi dr,

And did the following cause a crash?

qcatool keystore list Sys

I do not need to see the output, if it does not cause a crash.

#7 Updated by Richard Duivenvoorde about 4 years ago

Mmm, larry when I run that here on Debian Testing, I get a system beep, an output and then my prompt contains some leftovers it seems, see below: the strange characters are as seen in my terminal too... Maybe I should run another terminal? I also start qgis from this one...

#8 Updated by Larry Shaffer about 4 years ago

Hi Richard,

I'm gonna guess that is just your terminal not handling the non-ASCII (or unsupported) characters upon display (something Qt should handle fine). What happens if you pipe that to an output file instead?

qcatool keystore list Sys > ~/qcatool_Sys-keystore.txt

Do you still get any notification in terminal?

This looks more like a problem with the Python bindings and communication (or lack thereof) between threads.

If I pipe the output to a txt file all is fine (no 'bell').

But when I 'cat' that file I do get the bell-signal. But maybe this is totally unrelated?

#12 Updated by Larry Shaffer about 4 years ago

Yes, I think that is unrelated.

It seems that in order to create the QCA::Initializer object, it needs an available running QCoreApplication, otherwise it can't go back to the referenced current thread (because none exists).

For example, in the issue-reported code above:

>>> from qgis.core import QgsApplication
>>> QgsApplication.setPrefixPath('/usr', True)
>>> QgsApplication.initQgis()

this will NOT work because there is no available Qt application running. However if you do:

import sys
from PyQt4.QtCore import QCoreApplication
app = QCoreApplication(sys.argv)  #<-- this object needs to exist first, e.g. your own PyQt app needs instantiated first
from qgis.core import QgsApplication
QgsApplication.setPrefixPath('/usr', True)  #<-- optional, if you have set QGIS_PREFIX_PATH
QgsApplication.setAuthDbDirPath('/home/me/test')  #<-- need to define where the auth database is created (or exists)
QgsApplication.initQgis()
out = QgsApplication.showSettings()
print out

OR, something like this (as is done in the QGIS Python unit tests)

import sys
from qgis.core import QgsApplication
QgsApplication.setPrefixPath('/usr', True)  #<-- optional, if you have set QGIS_PREFIX_PATH
QgsApplication.setAuthDbDirPath('/home/me/test')  #<-- need to define where the auth database is created (or exists)
qgs = QgsApplication(sys.argv, False)
qgs.initQgis()
out = qgs.showSettings()
print out

You can also set some env variables: QGIS_PREFIX_PATH and QGIS_AUTH_DB_DIR_PATH

I'm not sure how to use the QgsApplication object without having a Qt app running, if it is to use the auth system. I suppose I could put a check in QgsAuthManager to disable the auth system if it finds no running app, or put in some type of QTimer::singleShot() to later set up the QCA::Initializer (though that still won't work without a running Qt app).

#13 Updated by Larry Shaffer about 4 years ago

Yep... in qca/src/qca_keystore.cpp on line 650, when setting up a global manager, it references the current application thread:

KeyStoreManagerGlobal()
{
  thread = new KeyStoreThread;
  thread->moveToThread(QCoreApplication::instance()->thread());
  thread->start();
}

This is not in a QCA plugin, but in core, so I don't see any way to skip the requirement of having a running QCoreApplication before calling QgsApplication.initQgis(). Unless, a parameter is added like initQgis(bool useAuthSystem), which then tries to disable the auth system when set to FALSE or tries to verify a running Qt app before enabling the system if set to TRUE, with all that code inside the QgsAuthManager::init() member function.

#14 Updated by dr - about 4 years ago

This way of using QGIS in custom application picked from PyQGIS Developer Cookbook http://docs.qgis.org/testing/en/docs/pyqgis_developer_cookbook/intro.html#using-pyqgis-in-custom-application

>>> from qgis.core import QgsApplication
>>> QgsApplication.setPrefixPath('/usr', True)
>>> QgsApplication.initQgis()

As I can see this is not correct for recent QGIS and user have to use another approach:

>>> from qgis.core import QgsApplication
>>> QgsApplication.setPrefixPath('/usr', True)
>>> qgs = QgsApplication(sys.argv, False)
>>> qgs.initQgis()

In this case updating of PyQGIS Developer Cookbook may be enough for closing this ticket?

#15 Updated by Larry Shaffer about 4 years ago

Other devs, do you think (as noted in comment 13) the Python access to the API should continue to be accessible without a running QCoreApplication? If so, it looks like the auth system would need to be disabled to accommodate that form of use.

#17 Updated by Nathan Woodrow about 4 years ago

I thought all Qt code needed QApplication or QCoreApplication to work.

I have always done

@>>> qgs = QgsApplication(sys.argv, False)

qgs.initQgis()
#do [email protected]

#do stuff

This is what I thought was required to do most anything useful. So maybe the cookbook needs updated?

http://docs.qgis.org/testing/en/docs/pyqgis_developer_cookbook/intro.html#using-pyqgis-in-custom-application

#19 Updated by Martin Dobias about 4 years ago

Actually the QApplication/QCoreApplication are not necessary unless you want to do some stuff with painting, widgets, threads and some other stuff.

Larry - would it be possible to do lazy initialization of the auth subsystem, so the existing code still keeps working?

In general, the QgsApplication API is extremely confusing - and I hope we can fix it for QGIS 3.0. It derives from QApplication (IMHO bad idea), it also handles init/exit and paths. The init/exit handling should be ideally completely automatic with PyQGIS, hopefully avoiding different possible ways how people init PyQGIS in the future.

Can you give me a description of how you see this implemented, i.e. psuedo code or whatever?

#23 Updated by Martin Dobias about 3 years ago

I thought that QgsApplication::initQgis() would not call QgsAuthManager::init(), the call would be rather deferred to a later time, so other QgsAuthManager methods would start with something like "if (!mAuthInit) init();". However looking at QgsAuthManager class, there are plenty of methods in there, so I am not sure if that would be worth it. Maybe better to address that in 3.0 that would set a requirement that QGIS libraries can be only initialized after Q[Core]Application object has been created?

Gents, I think 3.0 is getting in place currently, that's the reason I try to attract some devs into this(in my view pretty important) issue :-)
