QGIS 2.16 is running well until I install the openlayers plugin. Then qgis loses the grass connection.

After deactivating or uninstallation everything works fine again.

    If this problem is reproduceable, it should be a bug report rather than a question on GIS.SE – underdark Aug 9 '16 at 16:30
  • Could anybody check this out? – Pimpel Aug 9 '16 at 16:57
  • I was able to load an run r.reclass and densify algorithms after installing openlayers. Tested on a win10 64 and Nodebo OSGEO4w install – Gerardo Jimenez Aug 9 '16 at 17:46
  • I have this issue with OSGEO4w and normal installation. – Pimpel Aug 9 '16 at 18:08

    I do not have this issue on linux. You could probably replace openlayers by the quickmapservices plugin. Cheers, – Victor Aug 10 '16 at 9:18

I have the same issue. After installing openlayers under QGIS 2.16.1 Nodebo (OSGEO4w installation on win7 64bit) the Grass tools worked, but when I restart QGIS they don't any more. The strange thing is, no matter which tool I try, the QGIS message bar always shows the same info text (see image) [![Executing algorithm v.voronoi - Creates a Voronoi diagram from an input vector][1]][1]

The only thing that helped was to deactivate the openlayers plugin again.

In the QGIS Log messages Panel I get the following output:

  • I also have this issue - it looks like it may have been to do with the install path not being correct. So have a look in Processing->Options->Providers-> GRASS GIS 7 Commands -> GRASS 7 folder. It looks like the bug could be with updating that path when a new version of GRASS is installed. – Stev_k Oct 4 '16 at 16:59
  • Same problem on QGIS version 2.18.2 - 32 bit Windows 7. GRASS plugins work once the Open Layers Plugin is disactivated. – Dan Sep 18 '17 at 15:21
