[Solved] missing addon manager

Postby zvoros » Fri Jun 21, 2019 2:33 pm

Hi all,

After installing the latest daily build, I no longer find the addon manager. Below is a screenshot of my Tools menu. Image. Is this on purpose? If not, which steps are required to recover the menu item? Or is it possible to invoke the manager from the python console?

Thanks for any illuminating comments!

Same problem here

Code: Select all

OS: Linux Mint 19.1 (MATE/mate)
Word size of OS: 64-bit

Build type: Release
Python version: 3.6.8
Qt version: 5.9.5
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.3.0
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)

Code: Select all

Separately, even when this problem didn't occur in earlier 0.19 builds I was having a problem with the functionality of the AddonManager. When installing or updating the progress bar would never go further than about 1/3 of the way to complete, no matter how long I gave it. If I exited FC and restarted the new addon or update would be installed. Seems a AddonManager UI problem.

Perhaps a packaging problem. Mod/AddonManager/InitGui.py wants to

Code: Select all

import AddonManager_rc
but the AddonManager folder contains no AddonManager_rc.py file.

Yes, a PPA packaging problem.
Fix submitted, See here:https://salsa.debian.org/science-team/f ... equests/11

I think the addonmanager issue is pending on has been merged in this PR https://salsa.debian.org/science-team/f ... equests/11
Wonder what this is pending on? Perhaps @sgrogan can shed some light here?

Edit: in regards to the missing revision number.. this needs to be elevated to a higher priority.
Edit2: Thread split and moved in to https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 20#p316220

The Addon Manager issue should be fixed in the next PPA update.
