Thank you Victor,

I will finish my Masters in October. I will be free to assist after that.
Promise.

This is the documentation for configuring 3rd party applications

https://docs.qgis.org/2.6/en/docs/user_manual/processing/3rdParty.html#configuring-external-applications

Please, if you have some time and can help updating, let us know.
Contributions to that doc will be very welcome

Thanks

  Hi Andreas,

  Thank you for your response, and I think that your 'other' question is
  valid. I will see what I can do about that.

  But my other point is that there is very little documentation about what
  settings 'should' be applied to enable these providers. That makes it
  hard for users who want to get on with their work if they have to spend
  hours researching and experimenting.

  And, I've been around for long enough to know that I shouldn't whinge
  without thinking about volunteering to do that work myself. I am not in a
  position to raise my hand for that just yet. But you may see that before
  the end of the year.

  Hi Johanna,


  Orfeo Toolbox (photogrammetry software) is quite specialized and is not
  part of the standard QGIS distribution. I also have no experience with it
  and can't help.


  GRASS is different - it's a general purpose GIS and should work well with
  QGIS. What are you struggling with regarding GRASS?


  -------------


  The other question is: are you (I mean your Windows user account) a
  long-time QGIS user who upgraded from older versions? If yes, it can mean
  that some "out-of-the-box" settings don't apply, since you already have
  settings and they won't get overwritten (people wouldn't like that). So
  to judge things, it may be interesting to try from a new Windows user
  account and test if things work fine for a new and clean user account.
  You could then compare the settings and copy them over to the production
  user who upgraded from older QGIS.

  Hi Andreas,





  I was having specific issues with Orfeo Toolbox and GRASS. I'm running
  QGIS 2.14.1.





  I work where I have no permissions on my PC, so I struggle with basic
  read/write. My IT unit don't like installing via OSGeo – so that doesn't
  help either.

  Hi Johanna,


  Which provider are you talking about?


  You have to understand that Processing is an open and extensible system -
  many providers can't be shipped with QGIS, because they are very
  domain-specific and would bloat QGIS or because of licensing issues.
  Hence they need to be installed and configured separately.


  However, processing providers that are shipped along with QGIS, such as
  GDAL/OGR/Postgis/GRASS/Saga should work out of the box and I agree with
  you, it shouldn't require extra configuration ideally. So what provider
  are you talking about?


  Greetings,
  Andreas

  Hi All,

  I always struggle with the Options in Processing when I try to insert the
  correct path for a Provider. Is there anywhere that there is some
  documentation about what those settings should be?

  I do realise that these come from a variety of sources and may vary from
  installation to installation. But isn't it time that QGIS moved away from
  users needing to know the intricacies of each installation? Why can't
  QGIS work straight out from the installation by now? I want to be getting
  on with my GIS work and analysis of data. I don't need to know about the
  details of the entrails, do I?

  And yes, I am a Windows user and I am quite happy with being provided
  with an .exe file that just installs everything I need.
