I use GRASS62 and would like to access it through the QGIS GUI. I am running Fedora Core 6 on an AMD 64 bit machine. I installed QGIS, GRASS and related software using the Fedora Package Manager. The libraries were installed in /usr/lib64. My installation of GRASS works. When I start QGIS I get the following message:
No Data Provider Plugins /usr/bin/../lib/qgis No vector layers can be loaded. Check your QGIS installation
I then click OK, and the QGIS GUI appears. When I select the Plugin Manager, from the Plugins pull down menu, I get the following message:
No QGIS plugins found in /usr/bin/../lib/qgis
I then click OK, and the QGIS Plugin Manger appears, however no plugins are listed. If I try to change the plugin directory to /usr/lib64/qgis, where there is a libgrassplugin.so file, among other plugin files, no files are accessible to be selected.
I think this problem may be a result of QGIS not
looking in /usr/bin/../lib64/qgis. Is /usr/lib64/qgis the correct directory to be looking for plugins? If not, how do I access the plugins?
