Recently, the Toolbox of QGIS GRASS plugin can't find modules in my GNU/Linux Debian. When I click on any module, the toolbox reports the message: Cannot find module x.xxx and, after, I have the dialog window options totally empty (see image below).

enter image description here

My system worked nicely until yesterday.

To solve this problem (in my system recently actualized; with QGIS v. 2.8), I uninstall and install QGIS-GRASS system, including configuration files, erase my .qgis2 home and .grassrc6 (I modified my .bashrc too for adapting these changes) files. Nothing took effect.

I found out that the GRASS-QGIS modules are in /usr/share/qgis/grass/modules. My question is: How can I get my bindings to this path again?

Note: GRASS Console and GRASS commands of Processing Toolbox work well; apparently. However, I would like using the Toolbox of QGIS GRASS plugin again for saving time and it can use my already created work spaces.

  • The QGIS-GRASS-plugin still requires GRASS GIS 6 - is it installed? (A crowdfunding campaign is ongoing to fund support for G7)

  • Yes, it is installed and works well in GRASS Console; as I found recently (see the image). However, Modules in Modules List have disappeared.

  • I've just seen a flag from you requesting that this be migrated to Unix & Linux. Unfortunately, it is too old to migrate (that must be done within 60 days of the question being asked I think) so I recommend that you delete it here, and re-word it to post it as a new question on Unix & Linux.

Today (3 and half months later), I solved my problem with the update to new 2.10 (Pisa) version of QGIS.

  • Well, this is not a real solution. I suffer from the same problem, but I would like to keep 2.8 for compatibility reasons. So your original question is not answered.
