Unable to build/load GRASS Tools on osx

I’m struggling in having the grass tool [ https://docs.qgis.org/2.6/en/docs/user_manual/grass_integration/grass_integration.html ] installed/enabled on a mac osx.

I’m using both QGIS and GRASS built from source, from the relative latest GIT and SVN repository.
QGIS is built with Debug symbols ON, when i start the app I can see the processing toolbox is “grass aware” and I can run grass tools from its interface.
However, the grass tools are not available in the plug-in menu. I can’t figure out how to have the tools (I need direct accees to grass mapset etc .. ) enabled.

If useful for debug, this is the full build log: https://gist.github.com/c41caa9f5adef199c9d9004978dbf552
while this is the make install log: https://gist.github.com/ae2918fc0a665bb7cb01970d7f65846e

Look into the QGIS "Log messages panel > Plugins", if you find something similar to

Failed to load libgrassplugin7.so (Reason: Cannot load library libgrassplugin7.so: (libgrass_gis.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory))

then a path to GRASS libs is probably missing in DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. In such case add the path to the directory where GRASS libs are located to DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed
  • Description updated (diff)

There was no more feedback and I believe that it was local problem with missing paths to GRASS libs.

Reopen if necessary with more feedback.
