Bug report #2512
General plugin failure if "username" in C:/Documents and Settings/username has non-ascii characters

The current windows install sets the
.qgis/python/plugind directory under
C:/Documents and Settings/username
which results on general plugin failure in the case "username" has non-ascii
'C:/Documents and Settings/Mauro RodrÃguez Rey/.qgis/python'
A solution would be to optionally set the .qgis directory to another
Not sure if this problem would also occur for non-windows installations.

support for python plugin directory with accents in username (fixes #2512 again)
#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi about 13 years ago
to be more specific, for "general failure" it is meant that the python plugins do not install when the windows username includes non-ascii chars.
As far as I know this does not affects installations on linux, but would be better to double check.
