Crashes on attempt to open 1.0.2 Kore project (.qgs) file in Ubuntu 9.10

Most (maybe all) of the layers in the old v1.02 Kore project file are PostGIS layers. I don't know if that might have anything to do with the problem.

can you post a sample project?

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini about 14 years ago

Without a sample file, it is probably impossible to check & fix this. Please send it. Thanks.

This bug tracker just lost a long post I made when I attached a file prior to posting! I'll try to write it again.

First, thanks for your work on QGIS and the prompt reply. After posting this bug report I opened the .qgs file, which I had created on QGIS 1.0.2 in MS Windows Vista, in Ubuntu with a text editor. I found that the paths to the PostgreSQL server were incorrect (Windows installs to a different port than Ubuntu), and I made corrections. QGIS 1.3.0 still crashed on opening the .qgs file. Then, I changed all the references to c:\\ in the file to the correct Ubuntu paths, and the .qgs file opened in QGIS 1.3.0. However, several "layer group" names appeared without the corresponding layers even though the paths to the data seemed to be correct in the .qgs file (backward compatibility?). I'm not much of a programmer, but I'd guess that if you want QGIS to be "platform independent," you would either have to use path variables derived somehow from the system in the .qgs file or trap the error and prompt for the correct paths. I've attached the original Windows .qgs file in case you still need it.

I've found a number of other bugs in QGIS 1.3.0 in Ubuntu, including many crashes when trying to expand "layer groups." As you probably know, saving a "template" in the "print composer" doesn't work, although simply saving the project appears to save "print composer" settings. Let me know if it is helpful to post additional bugs.

Thanks again for your work and for QGIS!

Several of the issues you mentioned have been solved - please check a recent version (you can install it from osgeo4w, if on windows, without the need for compiling anything)

#5 Updated by Bob English about 14 years ago

As far as I can tell, there are no updated packages available for QGIS for Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic). Also, I could not find a way to install the LTS support version QGIS 1.0.2 Kore in Ubuntu 9.10. I added several repositories based on various forum posts, but the files are not available for QGIS 1.0.2 for Ubuntu 9.10. I suppose I would have to try to compile the newer version?

it crashes also qgis trunk, seems to be a problem with a missing GRASS mapset

I confirm, it still crashes with current trunk ()
