I'm trying to install the GEarthView plugin but without success. The following message pops up after installation:

"No module named zope.interface"

What is the problem?

QGIS 2.6.0 Windows7 (64Bit)

  • Following error now occur: !QGIS 2.8 Solutions?

There is a big advice Install, before, the following python libraries: twisted\ Twisted-13.0.0-py2.7-win32 ( https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Twisted/13.0.0 ) zope\ zope.interface-3.6.0-py2.7-win32 ( https://pypi.python.org/pypi/zope.interface/3.6.0 )in the plugin window.

Unfortunately, there is no package of zope.interface-3.6.0 for Python 2.7, which QGIS uses. You may try newer versions of zope.interface that support Python 2.7 as well:

  • No, sorry. The zope installation needs python 2.6. I'm using 2.7. I tried to install the 2.6.6. But after the installation the zope installation can't find Python 2.6

On Windows, you need to copy

zope twisted

inside the QGIS path. For example:

QGIS Brighton\apps\Python27\Lib\site-packages\twisted\ QGIS Brighton\apps\Python27\Lib\site-packages\zope\

  • When you say copy, what do you mean? There are 4 files to download on the twisted repository, for example. One is a Windows installation file which does nothing. Do we just download one of the others and copy it into those folders?
