$ c++filt _ZN28QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem19createFromUserInputE7QString

QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem::createFromUserInput(QString) is new in 1.8. Are you sure your core.so is linked to the current library? Check with ldd /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/qgis/core.so | grep qgis_core.

Maybe you still have an old version of the libraries installed (possibly from the former 1.8 branch).

  • libqgis_core.so.1.8.0 => /usr/lib/libqgis_core.so.1.8.0 (0xb6d94000) Commented Jun 21, 2012 at 1:04
  • Ok, so where did that library come from? Did you build yourself or installed a package? Did you install/build the python extension from the same source?

    I just installed from the QGIS page following instructions What commands would you suggest to completely delete all qgis from my drive and then I could start over Commented Jun 21, 2012 at 11:53
  • To see which packages are installed you could run: dpkg -l | grep qgis BTW which distribution are you using? To remove all QGIS packages run: apt-get remove --purge ".*qgis.*"

  • Thanks very much for all your help Jef. This is what I got back; have a 1.9 reference which is probably source of problems Commented Jun 21, 2012 at 23:59
