I just installed QGIS 3.4 on my computer (macOS Sierra 10.12.6) and I'm trying to install QuickMapServices, but I'm unable to. My plugins window looks like this:

QGIS plugins

and the settings tab says "The settings on this tab are only applicable for Python Plugins. No Python support detected, thus no settings available":


I downloaded QuickMapServices from the QGIS Python Plugin Repository, but I can't access it. I have Python 3.6.0 on my computer.

Update your Mac OS to High Sierra 10.13 or higher. This worked for me.

I had the same issue in Windows while using QGIS 3.16. So this is for anyone using Windows.

Check this site on installing Python packages https://landscapearchaeology.org/2018/installing-python-packages-in-qgis-3-for-windows/

You might realize you are missing the following .dll files

  • api-ms-win-crt-process-l1-1-0
  • api-ms-win-crt-conio-l1-1-0

Install them then proceed with the installation provided in the link.


For Linux the following helped: install qgis-server python-qgis qgis

# Debian-based, as e.g. Ubuntu    
if [ -f "/etc/debian_version" ]; then
    sudo apt install qgis-server python-qgis qgis

# Red-Hat-Based, as e.g. Fedora:
if [ "$(grep -Ei 'fedora|redhat' /etc/*release)" ]; then
    sudo dnf install qgis-server python-qgis qgis
