I know in QGIS you can subdivide a line, but is there a way you can type in a distance and the line will split according to this, with the last segment being smaller in length? If not I will try to script this in Python.


If you write split in the Processing toolbox you will find a tool under GRASS named v.split.length:

Which will give you the option to define the desired distance to split the line:
