@spencerrecneps No it won't, but it does show you the list of paths that are part of the PYTHONPATH.

comment Starting animation after X seconds in OpenLayers 3?
sounds like a possible bug report, if it's a function that's not working as it's supposed to =)

comment Inverted shading with polygons in QGIS 2.8
@corvus I would probably just build a .vrt of the files and layers I need, then apply the inverted effect to the vrt layer.

comment How to select features containing specific text string using an expression in QGIS
@chris You can use that same query in other parts of QGIS like as a definition query or styled using rule based rendering - really depends on the reason why you need to apply the query (ie, analysis, visualization, exporting, etc). Selections are a bit intensive but if applied as a definition query then it only displays those features in the query on the canvas or makes them available for processing. Essentially what you did when copy/pasting the selection as a new vector layer.

comment How to select features containing specific text string using an expression in QGIS
@bugmenot123 There might be a number of things that can make it slow, but for the most part it's fast especially if there is an index on the field you're querying. Speed of the query often depends on data format, management and storage.

comment Loading .shp file into QGIS gives error message
Maybe even try dragging and dropping just the .shp file into QGIS to see if it loads properly. If it doesn't there could be some missing shapefile parts like underdark says or something else going on.

comment Calculate normalized summary
If they are relative to the area in a discrete way, then it might be as simple as summing the values per var2,3,4 column during the dissolve.

comment Calculate normalized summary
It's still a little difficult to understand because if you dissolve by var1 the SHAPE_area/SHAPE_length field will be updated automatically if it's a feature class in a filegeodatabase. That's the first step... But I think we need some clarity on the rationale used to populate var2,3 and 4. Sounds like that should be done after the dissolve based on a field calculation. It might be helpful if you can explain how you came up with var2,3 and 4 in the first place.

comment ogr2ogr from personal geodatabase to spatialite produces “non-spatial” tables
Maybe consider using -nlt PROMOTE_TO_MULTI for that, where it converts all the features to multi-part geometries but allows you to import a geodatabase that's got multiple feature classes in one go.

You can try to force the geometry type from ogr2ogr with -nlt LINESTRING too.
