Bug report #1743
Some plugins menu items don't function
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||OS X||Easy fix?:||No|

Clicking the 'Plugins' menu and selecting "Fetch Python plugins..." has no effect on OS X. Nothing is reported to the console in a debug build either. If the plugin system detects that there is a new plugin, and the "There is a plugin update available" link is present in the map window, clicking this will open the plugin installer. This problem has been present for at least 2 weeks in trunk.

On further investigation, the following plugins that I have installed, when invoked, do nothing. I can only guess that there might be an api method used in the failing modules different from the ones that work. Hopefully it will help find the problematic code:
Zoom to Point
Add delimited Text Layer
Find by Attribute
PostGIS Sql Editor
These plugins are working:
OGR Layer Converter

The reason that activated() signal is not emitted is because it works only with qt3support libraries installed.
Mapserver export plugin and plugin installer can be easily fixed as they're inside qgis svn, but other plugins have to be fixed by their owners.
