Hi there, this might be related to ticket #8826, as it looks similar.

QGIS has updated to QGIS version 2.0.1 on my Ubuntu machine.
I have also recently installed the Enthought Python Distribution (epd), so this might also have led to this error?

I got the error below, with regards to the SIP module.
After this, I installed the SIP module according to: http://pyqt.sourceforge.net/Docs/sip4/installation.html,
but the error is still there.

Any suggestions?

@Couldn't load SIP module.
Python support will be disabled.

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

If you want to use a different python/sip/pyqt4 than what is in your ubuntu by default, you need to build QGIS yourself against it.
