Bug report #1919

Plugin installer (version 1.0.1) fails to load

Added by iknowjoseph - almost 14 years ago. Updated almost 14 years ago.

Assignee:Borys Jurgiel
Category:Python plugins
Affected QGIS version: Regression?:No
Operating System:Debian Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied: Resolution:wontfix
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:11979


Installed as per: https://trac.osgeo.org/qgis/ticket/1918

Selecting / deselecting the plugin installer from the plugin manager dialogue has no effect, although from the command line I can see:

[email protected]:~$ qgis
Python support ENABLED :-)
Loaded : Plugin Installer (package: plugin_installer)
Loaded : Plugin Installer (package: plugin_installer)

The plugin is never displayed in the menu, however.

If you have any ~/.qgis directory from a previous installation of qgis, try remove it.

#2 Updated by iknowjoseph - almost 14 years ago

Have removed ~/.qgis and now Plugin Installer is no longer available as an option within the Manage Plugins dialogue.

#3 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 14 years ago

You have probably have issues with python, missing one or more libraries. python-qgis maybe?

Thanks, apt-get install'ing that helped (see below for output)

Is python-qgis not an explicit dependency? Should it not have been installed as part of my original installation?

Thanks again, Joseph

So does it work now and can you close the ticket? I hope the old libraries were the only reason. If not, very strange that the Installer has disappeared from the list after removing the .qgis directory - it sholud be present in a /usr/share/qgis/python/plugins/plugin_installer directory.
