Following the installation of QGIS, I wanted to install additional extansion. The extension is installed correctly, but an error message appeared when integrating them into Quantum. The message said "No module named openlayers_plugin" even though the files was in the user folder .qgis and the status of the extension became red with "invalid extension".

Solution: The name of the user session was "André".
I add a new user with a session name without an accent. Once logged into the new user's session, I redid the installation and the extensions are installed properly without any problem.
