I am a new QGIS user and I'ld like to load a scanned map for geocoding.
The map is in a file on the desk top.
Launch QGIS
Click on icon add a raster layer
select the scanned .png map
error message as follows

"An error has occured while executing Python code:

Traceback (most recent call last):

The error message window is not closing except I close QGIS.
How could I manage this problem?


#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 15 years ago

what version of qgis did you used?

Can you attach here the raster that is giving you problems?

#2 Updated by Borys Jurgiel almost 15 years ago

This is because the Value Tool plugin doesn't support non-ascii characters occurring in the name or path of your file. So no more details are necessary ;-)

I'm contact the author to correct this issue. Please temporarily disable the plugin in the Plugin Manager if this message is annoying.

#3 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 15 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Seems that the plugin has been updated and now works fine. Reopen if necessary.
