I am using Qgis 1.9 . I have downloaded a plugin "mm qgis", however When I run this plugin I am getting following error:

An error has occured while executing Python code:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Documents and Settings\15491/.qgis2/python/plugins\mmqgis\", line 525, in run message = mmqgis_geometry_convert(self.iface, layername, newtype, splitnodes, savename, 1) File "C:\Documents and Settings\15491/.qgis2/python/plugins\mmqgis\", line 1154, in mmqgis_geometry_convert layer.dataProvider().select(layer.dataProvider().attributeIndexes()) AttributeError: 'QgsVectorDataProvider' object has no attribute 'select'

That version of QGIS is very old. The version of the plugin you have wasn't migrated to the new API.

  1. Download the latest QGIS version
  2. Install plugins via the plugin manger
