I am a new user of GIS software and I am currently facing an issue with the GRASS7 tool `r.water.outlet. I am a beginner with both Linux and GIS. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 with QGIS 2.14.2 and GRASS 7.0.3 I downloaded and installed the software by following the instructions of the official QGIS webpage.

I am using GRASS7 r.watershed to create a "Drainage" raster that I use as an input for r.water.outlet. The second input is the coordinates of vectorial points I want to use to delineate my basins (it would be even better if I could use several points to do so because I need 5 different basins).

This is my r.water.outlet interface:

First thing I noticed: I can't enter decimal numbers, so I lose accuracy for my input points, and the interface is different from the one in the second image for the tool r.water.outlet for my version of QGIS.

enter image description here

Then when I run the process (In my QGIS 2.14.2, the processing plugin version is 2.12.2), I obtain the log:

Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem? If you need further information, do not hesitate to ask me.

r.water.outlet input=tmp1462467882073 easting="989927" northing="1891138" output=output881924edb38d42189f35bcf5166a0da3 --overwrite

I guess the problem comes from 'easting' and 'northing' are not valid parameters, you should substitute them with:

coordinates=east,north

Written in the help:

r.water.outlet input=name output=name coordinates=east,north 
[--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]
