I have resources.qrc compiled to resources.py using the following batch file:

@echo off
call "C:\Program Files\QGIS 3.0\bin\o4w_env.bat"
call "C:\Program Files\QGIS 3.0\bin\qt5_env.bat"
call "C:\Program Files\QGIS 3.0\bin\py3_env.bat"

@echo on
pyrcc5 -o resources.py resources.qrc

I import resources at the beginning of the code but i get the following error:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'resources'

I tried editing the .ui file as explained here: QGIS plugin: Problems importing resources (resources_rc) file - plugin doesn't load - PATH problems? But I don't have the exact same lines as mentioned instead of:

  <include location="resources.qrc"/>

I have:


Here is the content of the folder: enter image description here Does somebody have a clue what is wrong?

  • Try with from resources import * Mar 13, 2018 at 12:50
  • I'm not answering your question. I personally stopped using resources files in all my plugins. I saw the same in other plugins. Using the filepath on the file system is working well to load icons, images or whatever. We don't have to recompile anymore this file.

  • Can you try the bat script from: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/260743/… That works for me. Mar 13, 2018 at 13:37

As your ParcelCapture.py and resources.py are in same directory you can use relative path like this from .resources import * to import resources module into your ParcelCapture.py.
Hope this answers your question.
