Select a Grass 7 tool, e.g v.split.length, r.aspect
Error message: Missing dependency. This algorithm cannot be run :-(
It seems that GRASS GIS 7 is not correctly installed and configured in your system. Please install it before running GRASS GIS 7 algorithms.
Console output: ERROR: option <output>: </tmp/processinge1c274c67147466d8f674e4a73e37a95/734717ba89834cb895be30f61d6e4555> exists. To overwrite, use the --overwrite flag
This message is produced in plugins/processing/gui/ProcessingToolbox.py
It appears that the tool runs through some diagnostic steps involving creating various files. This fails when the same filename is reused and the overwrite flag is not provided.


#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 7 years ago

  • Regression? changed from Yes to No
  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

Just tested on both the described OSes (same versions) and cannot confirm. Using QGIS installed from QGIS with ubuntugis dependencies.

Please check in ~/.qgis2/python/plugins

you have a "processing" folder, is yes delete, restart qgis and try again.

#3 Updated by Vincent Hussey almost 7 years ago

Removing the processing folder worked.
rm -Rf ~/.qgis2/python/plugins/processing*

Thanks for the feedback
