Start QGIS and add some projected vector layer;br
Enable on the fly projection; br
Add layer from NASA (JPL) WMS server with CRS = WGS84; br
Resulting error message below:

Could not draw NASA (JPL) because:
(Unknown error code from a post-1.3 WMS server)
The WMS vendor also reported: 
    Output Width and Height must both be positive

This is probably due to a bug in the QGIS program.  Please report this error.

This can be reproduced without an additional layer. Just open QGIS, add WMS layer, then enable projections and choose a different projection. There seems to be a problem in calculating necessary width/height, however I'm not familiar with the calculations.

Moved to 0.8.1

#3 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - about 17 years ago

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

This seems to be fixed now (works for me), possibly as a result of fixing ticket #474. If not, please reopen.
