The actual version of QGIS's master has trouble using the "--configpath" boot parameter.

If you set C:\\OSGeo4W\\bin\\qgis-dev.bat --configpath D:\\SIG\\qgis\\ as the path for QGIS to look at and store all its configuration and cache files, when you try to install a new plugin QGIS will reports the following error (it's looking everywhere, except the configpath) :

Impossible to load plugin 'sextante' from ['C:/OSGeo4W/apps/qgis-dev/./python', 'C:\\Users\\morreale jean roc/.qgis/python', 'C:\\Users\\morreale jean roc/.qgis/python/plugins', 'C:/OSGeo4W/apps/qgis-dev/./python/plugins', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\bin\\python27.zip', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27\\DLLs', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27\\lib', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27\\lib\\plat-win', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27\\lib\\lib-tk', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\qgis-dev\\bin', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27\\lib\\site-packages', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\Python27\\lib\\site-packages\\PIL', 'C:\\OSGeo4W\\apps\\qgis-dev\\python\\plugins\\fTools\\tools']

#1 Updated by Jean-Roc Morreale over 10 years ago

I redid a try on Windows 7 and 1.8.0-Lisboa Lisboa, 3874b10

I deleted the previous qgis folder so the app would create a brand new one at the indicated path (it created ./gdal_pam/, ./python/ & qgis.db).

When installing a new extension, the error reported is the same as previous. I'll make a try on linux to see if it is the same behaviour.

#2 Updated by Jean-Roc Morreale over 10 years ago

I tried on linux (fedora 17) with qgis master, same problem.

  • Target version set to Version 1.8.0
  • Priority changed from Normal to Severe/Regression
  • Category changed from Python plugins to Project Loading/Saving

I think this should be a blocker. Several organizations rely on this feature in their more complex setups. In my opinion it is inacceptable to release a new version with such a bug if a feature worked before in a previous major release.
