Category:Python plugins
Affected QGIS version:master Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:23484


While we have separate .qgis-dev and .qgis2 dirs for plugins etc, the QSettings from both qgis2 and qgis3 share the same settings.

If I open QGIS3 in a normal way, I see repositories which I created in QGIS2, but if I try to edit/delete those I get figure 1

If I try to open qgis in a separate configpath eg:

qgis --configpath /tmp/qt33

Then I cannot even open the plugin manager see figure 2
