Description

Fresh install of QGIS 3.0.

I am experiencing the same issue referred to in these issues: #17488 (see screenshot), #18065 and #18194

The fix is supposed to be deleting "qgis_customwidgets.py" from the folder "usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/PyQt5/uic/widget-plugins" but evidently the file structure is different on the RPM version, as this file does not exist.

Note that I recently switched from Linux Mint 18.3, where I experienced an identical issue. Deleting the above file did not completely solve the issue in that case.

I had no issues with the graphical modeler in QGIS 2.18.

I managed to locate the file on my system:

"/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/PyQt5/uic/widget-plugins/qgis_customwidgets.py"

I can confirm that renaming/deleting the file fixes the issue with the graphical modeler.

It seems to me that this file should be removed/disabled until these issues can be fixed. As it stands, the graphical modeler is broken on Linux (or at least on two Linux platforms).

It's only the case if you had previously installed a dev version of 2.99 -- an installation of the final 3.0 release doesn't have this issue.

#4 Updated by John Smith almost 3 years ago

This doesn't seem to be correct. This bug occurred with a completely new install of QGIS -- version 3.0.0-Girona -- that did not have any version previously installed. I had completely formatted my computer and changed distros earlier that day -- February 24.

This is the build (from February 23):
