comment JP2 fails to open in QGIS and GDAL
Thanks, that's a very thorough answer and it confirmed that the fault is probably a bug and not just a poorly configured system. I wasn't able to make use of the Kingchaos plugin because my new laptop isn't a mac (it's Ubuntu). I got done what I needed to get done with the file on my old Mac so the issue isn't a priority for me any more. In the meantime I'll report the bug to the QGIS team and hopefully there'll find the fault, I don't feel confident altering my own gdal build.

comment Install shapely for QGIS on Mac
@gene I'm not sure, I think I remember trying to update my python to a higher version a few years ago so I expect I messed things up then. But the PATH hint has done the trick; from the GQIS python console I did sys.path.append('/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Shapely-1.2.16-py2.7-mac‌​osx-10.5-intel.egg') and after that I could import shapely, and install the plug in! I suspect it won't be permanent but it works. Thank you so much for all your help, if you write it up as an answer I'll select it as correct.

comment Install shapely for QGIS on Mac
@gene No I don't believe so. Should I download the source in /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/ and 'python setup.py install' from there?

comment Install shapely for QGIS on Mac
@gene And yet it doesn't... I've looked and I think QGIS is using a different version of 2.7, see my edit above. Do you know if I could install shapely to a particular version of 2.7? Thanks for your help.

@gene it doesn't work in 2.6. <code>import shapely</code> does, <code>import shapely.geometry</code> does not. (though that shouldn't matter right?)

@gene Yeah that works in the terminal in 2.7 (I use Lion).

comment QGIS Map Composer, right hand pane has gone!
@NathanW Yup, you're right, that's the exact problem. Thanks for spotting it, I did search but not with the right terms apparently.

Great, thanks. I've adapted it and it works a charm!
