#516 closed defect (worksforme)

no vector menu tools are available

Reported by: saultdon Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: blocker Component: Package
Version: Keywords: qgis 2.16


Looks like the vector menu in QGIS 2.16 is missing some gdal entries maybe.

Entries not there are: Research Tools, Geoprocessing Tools, Geometry Tools, Analysis Tools, and Data Management Tools.

This is not a bug of OSGEO4W, but a strange feature of QGIS 2.16.

Overriding the locale with US English, the GDAL menu entries are present.

Changing locale back to my OS (German), I have a second vector menu behind the Help Menu. The First Vector menu only has Openstreetmap, while the second has the GDAL commands.

See for the corresponding ticket from

Tested on Ubuntu and Windows, so not an OSGeo4W packaging problem.

OK, figured it out.

With QGIS 2.16, Processing is a core plugin now. Saw some comments from Arch Linux users about this.

Users when upgrading should delete the processing plugin folder in their Users or Home folder.

On Windows it could be: C:\Users\username\.qgis2\python\plugins\processing On Linux it's: /home/username/.qgis2/python/plugins/processing

Once I deleted the old processing plugin folder, menu entries are back!

This report can be closed, thanks for your time! Oh, and it looks like that's described int the link you provided as well =)
