I've just started playing with QGIS with a view to eventually developing a few simple plugins in Python. I downloaded
QGIS 1.7.1 for Windows and started working through these workshop notes.
If I've understood correctly, developing plugins often uses
QT Designer and something called
pyuic4. These don't seem to be included in the QGIS install, so I downloaded PyQT4 separately. This enabled me to finish working through the workshop, but now when I start QGIS I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in RuntimeError: the PyQt4.QtCore module is version 1 but the qgis.core module requires version -1
If I uninstall PyQT4, the problem goes away, but then I don't have
QT Designer or
pyuic4, so how do I develop plugins? I'm not sure what
version -1 of PyQT4 is.
Does anyone have any suggestions, please? I'm obviously doing something daft, but I'm not sure what. Perhaps QT Designer is actually included somewhere with QGIS 1.7.1, but if so I can't find it...
