comment Problem with encoding UTF8 chars in Windows with pyQGIS
This isn't really Windows specific. I had the same Problem on Linux. I think it just depends on how your Environment and your data is set up.

comment How to configure QGIS and SAGA on Ubuntu (12.04 and others)?
I have this Problem as a recurring issue on my Ubuntu Precise with multiple users in multiple groups. In my case, the Problem is that /tmp/processing gets created by userA with ownership and no write Access outside the Group. If I fix the permissions on /tmp/processing with sudo chown root.root /tmp/processing and sudo chmod 0777 /tmp/processing, then saga (and grass) will work fine. Don't know if that's your Problem, though.

comment Qgis 2.2 how to fix bad epsg.wkt load
Incidentally, I had Occasion today to do another full reinstall of qgis grass saga from ubuntu-unstable. The Problem is still there. I am hoping it will go away in Qgis 2.4.

comment Qgis 2.2 how to fix bad epsg.wkt load
Maybe... if I install, I run as root. Root has no GDAL_DATA environment variable, and why should it, if we are reinstalling gdal with qgis? but if the install script doesn't have that variable set right when it runs crssync, maybe it couldn't find epsg.wkt, with horrible results?

comment Qgis 2.2 how to fix bad epsg.wkt load
Yes, the error is the same as the error experienced with 1.8. But reinstalling did not help, nor did going back a version. I feel like it must be a gdal saga grass clobber of some kind, but I don't know what

I used ubuntugis-unstable. Same thing. My setup is not particularly wacky. I have grass and saga and gdal and that's about it.

I did, although I am nervous about reporting a bug when I don't know why it happened.

comment How to make work tablet integrated GNSS (GPS) on Windows 8 with QGIS?
We have played with Localizer on Acer Tablets, however my users tell me that when they are trying to figure out higher precision questions like "What side of the land parcel border is that tree sitting on", the users are happier with the accuracy of an external GPS stick. The ergonomic Problems posed by a stick poking out of your tablet can be solved easily by a short mini-usb cable and some duct tape. Also, Localizer 4 has some stability problems. I actually managed to make a BSOD Loop with a vanilla Win 8.1 tablet yesterday just by installing the trial download. I had to reset the machine.
