I recently updated my Ubuntu system to version 14.04. I added the sources and installed QGIS as per the directions on the QGIS website. Everything looks good, except for I do not have all the available plugins listed that I do on my windows installation. I haven't been able to recreate it again in order to take a screen capture, but I received an error that there is not python support.

I have not been able to find much through we searches on the topic. So, does anyone know of a way to install Python support for QGIS Ubuntu? Or is this likely a bug related to 2.4's relative newness?

  • The qgis site lists two ways to install on Ubuntu. The ubuntugis ppa and QGIS repository. Which did you use? I used ubuntugis and have no problems with python.

  • I did it both ways with the same results.

    @underdark: ubuntugis has updated the relevant packages for trusty, so that issue is solved.

It worked for me with a clean install of QGIS 2.2 from ubuntugis unstable, and update to QGIS 2.4.

If you tried both methods you might have mixed packages. Make sure you have removed all packages from the qgis.org site, and remove qgis.org from the sources list and/or the Software Center.

  • Did as you suggested and still the same. I have the same errors that are posted in my original post. I may have missed something, could you recommend a tutorial for what you suggested?

  • 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.
