I'm running qgis 3.0.3 in Fedora 28 and I seem to have several, related problems with plugins.

Plugins --> Manage and Install Plugins: the window that opens shows 7 pre-installed plugins (I think there used to be 8 before, how come?).

Under the Settings tab, it says that "no python support detected, thus no settings available"

What dependency am I missing on my system?

Also, the search from the search field doesn't seem to work, it searches only through the 7 available plugins.

I downloaded a plugin from qgis and extracted it to

/home/myyser/.local/share/QGIS/QGIS3/profiles/default/python/plugins but it's not being loaded.

Any hints?

    did you install qgis-python? – Ian Turton Jun 5 '18 at 16:28
  • Nope, not until now. This should be marked as a soft dependency by the package maintainer. Many thanks for your help! It now works as it should. – Flo Jun 5 '18 at 20:27
  • @Flo, please accept the answer if it works, so others can see that your issue was solved. – Chau Oct 3 '18 at 9:24
  • Where can one find qgis-python? – Kristen G. Nov 12 '19 at 13:40

There is an optional qgis-python package that needs to be installed for the python plugins to work.

Try to find name of package python3-qgis in Fedora package manager (worked for me in Fedora 30).
