comment Problem with GRASS in QGIS
Can you try importing the geometry only (no attributes), to see if the issue is with the geometry or the attributes (my guess).

comment how to tidy up line intersections
Do the lines actually intersect (with topology) or just cross each other?

comment QGIS I would like to get a single point from a polygon Centroid if within the polygon any point if not
Thanks neuhausr; I'm not sure how to avoid that--I suppose the st_pointonsurface command isn't exactly optimized for what you are trying to do, but I'm not sure what else would be!

comment How to extract mountain peak points from a given digital elevation model?
To improve on method 2) you could also find the highest elevation value in each 'peak' after nulling the lower values, rather than just using the centroid.

comment Georeference image is mirrored
I've seen this too in the past, and would like to hear an answer. If I recall correctly though, it had to do with the CRS not being set properly. Can you confirm that your map CRS is properly set?

It is best to create separate questions for each of your points. It is impossible for anyone to respond to your questions as asked.

comment Import csv file and use “toggle editing” and “field calculator” without Saving it as a Shapefile.
As far as I know, no. It brings it in as a non editable 'virtual layer' - you must save it to an OGR editable file first.

comment Can the software be installed silently?
@LDFerg: No, if you install via the OSGEO4W package, everything is contained in the install folder. Give it a try, I suspect it will work for you.

comment QGIS - Continuous buffer image [Heat Map]
Giulio; the effect you are looking for is a raster operation (rather than vector) and is called a heat map. Try a search for QGIS and heat map and you will find lots of options.

comment GRASS v.Overlay/QGIS Intersect Speed intersecting line and polygon
Great! You may want to submit your description files to @Victor Olaya (Sextante/Processing developer) and he will roll it into the release so others can benefit! – Darren Cope 29 mins ago

comment GRASS v.Overlay/QGIS Intersect Speed intersecting line and polygon
@BJEBN; unfortunately I don't have time right now to try a benchmark, but another thought may be to try the 64bit version of QGIS available as an experimental build from trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w (assuming you're on a 64bit machine) and see if the processing time is any faster. Otherwise, you could add the GRASS v.split and v.overlay to the Processing toolbox - not that hard to do following the instructions here: fossies.org/linux/misc/qgis-2.0.1.tar.gz:a/qgis-2.0.1/python/…

comment How to calculate mean coordinates from big point datasets?
If you're on a 64 bit Windows machine, try the experimental build of 64bit OSGEO4W (trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w) I've had good luck with it being faster/less 'crashy' on big tasks.
