comment Features in .shp can't be identified & won't render
Can you share a sample shapefile via dropbox? I am working with Windows XP and 7 (QGIS 32bit version on both) and never had any such problems.

comment Saving selection as new layer in QGIS 2.4?
Note that this behaviour has changed from QGIS 2.2 to 2.4. The old Save Selected As has been dropped (not only for Mac users).

comment Saving selection as new layer in QGIS 2.4?
@PolyGeo: The old question is not a duplicate, because Save selection As has moved from the context menu to the Save As dialogue in QGIS 2.4.

comment distance difference in Google Earth with exported GPX or KML compared to source shapefile
4 points kml is not much, you can edit your original question adding them as plain text.

comment Georeferencing image using QGIS?
All control points MUST be in the same CRS. Otherwise georeferencing will not work.

Can you add a screenshot of the georeferencer dialogue?

Do you get coordinates if you add $X and $Y in the attribute table using field calculator?

comment ESRI : 54019 or World winkel II in QGIS
I have not found any. It would be easier to reproject the data inside ARCGIS to a projection that both systems can work with.

comment Python support with QGIS 2.4 on Ubuntu 14.04
Just another solutuion: package python-pyspatialite may cause errors: hub.qgis.org/issues/10099. Please have a look at the installation log if the problem remains.

comment Tool for rendering/drawing maps from coordinates
The OSM plugin can read all key-value entries if you click on read from database. The type="room" attribute you gave is not compatible to the key-value scheme, hence it is ignored. You might try <tag k="type" v="room" /> instead.

Here you may find some hints on cleaning your system: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/29094/…;. Didn't you solve the problem then?

comment Debugging ogr2ogr “AddGeometryColumn failed” and “Terminating translation prematurely after failed translation of layer”
Have you tried adding the data from the same computer Postgis is running on? Maybe OSX and Ubuntu don't like each other...

comment how to permanently add raster to satellite image in qgis
You have to set the grid distance. The default value is very small, so you get too much lines. Make sure to have a project CRS in metres, and set the grid distance to 10000 for a 10km grid.

I use Vector -> Research Tools -> Vector grid. This creates a permanent shapefile.

comment Display local language for OSM data in TileMill
Just to add: The standard Mapnik toolchain also uses prefabricated shapefiles for low zoom levels. This is much faster than querying the database for large areas.

comment how to permanently add raster to satellite image in qgis
I rather thought of rasterizing the vector grid. QGIS has a built-in rasterizer under Raster -> Conversion -> Rasterize, as well as a merge tool using gdal_merge.

comment How to render tiles from kml file
Unfortunately, I have experience with QGIS, but did not yet get around to learn python. Alternatively, a batch script using GDAL ogr2ogr could do the same, once you have successfully got it working manually.
