I was having problems with some sextante algorithms in my QGIS 1.8, something related with wrong "os" name, I found a post in which reccomend to install the 1.9 master version.

I clean uninstalled the QGIS and then I installed the 1.9 version. When I activate the sextante toolbar, the Grass, TauDEM and even the QGIS algorithms doesn't appear in it. I have tried activating them in the configuration of sextante, reinstalling the plugin but the tools still missing.

Any ideas of what is happening?

In QGIS 1.9 you can choose between "Simplified interface" and "Advenced interface" under the SEXTANTE toolbox.

Simplified hide all external algorithms, probably this is your problem.

  • Thanks for your answer, in fact as you mention I forgot the "Advanced Interface" now I have al the available tools. I was getting crazy because I tried all complex stuff to solve this issue, reinstalling, change version......and the solution was in front of me all the time..... Regards. Jun 3, 2013 at 19:38
