I'm sure there is a really simple explanation to this but haven't found any pointers on this forum or elsewhere. I seem to have lost the 'processing' menu from QGIS and can't figure out how/why!? Any ideas what I might have done to make this happen?

I'm running QGIS 2.8 built against GDAL 1.10 on Ubuntu 14.04.

  • I am having this problem as well. The processing toolbox is installed in the plug-in manager but I cannot find it anywhere. HELP And i cannot edit or uninstall/reinstall processing toolbox plug-in--it's locked. – Nina Ignaczak Apr 29 '18 at 13:28

The Processing menu is tied to the Processing plugin. So please check if you have deactivated the Processing plugin in the Plugin Manager.

  • To enable it, go to Plugins -> Manage and Install Plugins... -> Installed and check the checkbox next to "Processing". PS. I didn't deactivate it for sure, it must just happen. – Line Mar 6 '18 at 11:55
  • mine shows ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'psycopg2' error when I'm trying to reload Processing or during startup. Processing toolbar isn't visible because of it. any idea? – Atreyagaurav Jan 2 at 6:24

Processing sometimes crashes or takes a long time to load. so sometimes QGIS disables it. As @underdark answered, re-enable it from plugins menu.

  • Working with QGIS 3.4.9, Processing was checked in the Plugins but not appearing on the menu bar. Unchecking and then checking the box again helped it reappear. – Richard D Aug 29 '19 at 3:27
