in QGis 1.8 were lots of predefined coordinate systems (national projections). Where have they all gone in qgis 2.0? I specifically need the Gauß-Krüger-Projections Zone 1 to 5.

Is there any plugin to load those coordinate systems?

  • Most of them should still be there (perhaps a corrupted install?). On the off chance that you do need to add it back in as a local change, see qgis.org/en/docs/user_manual/working_with_projections/… – BradHards Dec 12 '13 at 11:00
  • I reinstalled the 64-bit version, there is no gauss-kruger-koordinate system predefined – Rittershofer Dec 12 '13 at 14:11
  • You're sure? In my 64 bit version they are available (i.imgur.com/ZkQ5uSL.png). Alternatively you could just define them manually (easy way is to import a GK projected layer and save the incorporated projection) – Curlew Dec 12 '13 at 16:24

I was also missing most of the CRS list in my 2.0.1 Dufour install. Based on Andre's response, I had a look at the postinstall.log files. For the record I'm running:

  • Windows 7 SP1
  • QGIS 2.0.1 x86_64 installed on my E: drive (QGIS-OSGeo4W-2.0.1-3-Setup-x86_64.exe)
  • QGIS 1.8.0 previously installed (also on E: drive; no issues with CRS)
  • User is local admin

QGIS 2.0.1 postinstall.log on E: drive:

No CRS updates were necessary.

Uninstalled 2.0.1 from E: drive and reinstalled in default location on C: (QGIS 1.8.0 untouched):

Success! My CRSs are back. I hope this helps someone (especially a developer)!

If you are missing CRS like EPSG:31467, the Installation of QGIS is broken at some stage. We had several similar cases recently:

My Coordinate Reference System listing is in the wrong language

Saving a gml layer does not change coordinates

but have not yet found the reason for it.

Have a look at the postinstall.log file (for Windows standalone) or etc\var\log\setup.log.full (for OSGEo4W). It should tell you why the CRS update process failed.

Please add Operating System and the installer you used to your question.

For 32-bit standalone, the postinstall.log of mine contains starting line 174:

OSGeo4W reports at the end of setup.full.log the same entries:

Unfortunately, OSGEO4W64 does not give detailed output for me, but contains the usual CRS.
