This question has been bugging me for a while now, and I still haven't managed to solve it, so I'm giving it another go, hopefully someone may help me out.

I've been having problems loading several QGIS plugins. I've just done a reinstall of QGIS 1.7.4., followed all the instructions, so just did a default installation (I've tried the osgeo4w installer already and it only made matters worse...).

Whenever I try to use, let's say the "1 band raster color table" plugin, I get error messages. First of all, when I load the plugin, I get the message "Cannot continue. Problems!". If I close this message, the plugin stays open anyway and let's me select the options I want. When I click "Create", I get yet another error message, that starts off with this:

"Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:/Users/Tiago/.qgis/python/plugins\bcccoltbl1\", line 826, in applyTBL
    myStats = self.myGRD.getStats()
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'getStats'"

Now, I've been told that this might have to do with me having non-Latin characters in the path... I've been trying to understand this, but I'm getting really confused... When I used QGIS 1.6, I had no problems of this sort. But I didn't change a thing in my disk's organization when I upgraded to QGIS 1.7, so how can this be, that the plugins ran smoothly before but not anymore? If I had non-latin characters, they would be there before, anyway, so the plugins should have had these same errors...

This is getting me really frustrated, because it will make it very hard for me to keep using QGIS if I can't even change the looks of rasters!

Please, I really need help with this. If necessary, I can send some more information.

please provide full path to the raster, where is your raster located and what its filename. – Maxim Dubinin Apr 3 '12 at 16:33
Not an answer I'm afraid. I've just tested the "1 band raster color table" plug-in and I get exactly the same problem as you. QGIS 1.7.4, 32-bit Vista. I don't have non-Latin characters in my path names or file names so I don't think this is to do with font encoding. – nhopton Apr 3 '12 at 18:38
Curiously, After going through the whole shennanigans of uninstalling the OSGEO4W software and re-installing the standalone version of QGIS 1.7.4. (as well as all the plugins), it suddenly started to work... Let's see if it will actually continue like this! – TTome Apr 5 '12 at 11:16
nhopton, sorry for not getting back at this earlier, but I ended up not working that much on those projects lately. It stills is a problem, though - sometimes it simply won't work, sometimes it does. Total mistery for me! – TTome May 4 '12 at 18:09
