I am so lost and confused. I have spent days on this and not had any luck, so I'm really hoping someone can help!
I am a new opensource user with an Ubuntu 13.04 OS. I used the software GUI (Ubuntu Software Center - it came with the OS) to install QGIS and found that it popped up with an error around installing the Python plugin.
I then deleted QGIS (again, through the Ubuntu Software Center) and battled with different software source options. I finally used the terminal to access ubuntugis directly and install it from there.
It installed QGIS 2.0 Dufour after I typed in the coding lines:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install qgis python-qgis qgis-plugin-grass
More errors! When I open it, I get the error:
[ERROR] Cannot make qgis.db private copy
I can say ok, but then another error pops up that says:
Couldn't load plugin processing due an error when calling its classFactory() method
Folks seem to have had a similar problem fairly commonly - my exact error is here but others had similar errors with Sextante? - but I have not yet read a 'solution' to the problem that I was able to understand as a new user.
I can press ok again and it opens, but I really need to open .dgb files, which I cannot do using the addvector command (it wants me to connect to a server when the file is on my computer). Again, other people have had this problem and downloaded gdal, which I tried to do (again through the Ubuntu Software GUI because the links on the website weren't working for me) but I got the error:
Package dependencies cannot be resolved.
Are the two issues linked? What do I do?
