I would like to use the r.xtent add-on made for GRASS GIS (http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons/grass6/raster/r.xtent/description.html) in QGIS using the GRASS plugin, but I can't seem to find it.

What could be the issue?

  • It would help if you can tell us what version of QGIS you're targeting, and what you've already tried. – BradHards Feb 5 '15 at 9:34
  • I'm using Quantum GIS 1.8.0. I opened Plugins->GRASS->Open Grass Tools and searched for r.xtent in the Filter field as well as went through all the raster add-ons in the modules tree, but did not find it. – Kristo Feb 5 '15 at 10:22
  • So GRASS works in your QGIS, but you're missing that specific plugin? – BradHards Feb 5 '15 at 10:28
  • Yes, exactly. Sorry for the confusing title. – Kristo Feb 5 '15 at 10:29
  • And you're on windows? 32-bit or 64-bit? – BradHards Feb 5 '15 at 10:36

The algorithm you want is not in the latest QGIS processing toolbox either.

It seems that it contains only core GRASS functions, but no add-ons.

Compare http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass/trunk/raster/ with http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons/grass6/raster/

GRASS can be run independent from QGIS, and you can add those extensions there following: http://grass.osgeo.org/download/addons/.

But you might not have access to it via the old GRASS plugin or the Processing toolbox.
