Let me see if I can break it on my end. It's opening for me ....and I just opened it with a random win protocol I just picked.

Lemme do some digging - I'm not entirely sure why yours isn't opening. I'm running xubuntu 16.04 and qgis 2.18.1 and it works.


Are you in a Virtual Machine or installed on a computer? This is going to sound stupid but is your networking up? Can you ping something on the outside world. I just turned networking off and got the same error. I'm hoping you're about to save you're in a VM and maybe the networking is being weird.

Initially I left it as utf-8 but when that didn't work thought maybe there was a reason to switch to the win encoding....so utf-8 not working either.

    I would leave (or change) the encoding to UTF-8. It opened for me

    I am on ubuntu 16.04 and I am unable to do something i've done in

    The link to the feeds is here...

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/geojson.php
    <http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/geojson.php>

    ...the actual feed I used is this one (there are several on the
    above link)

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/summary/all_month.geojson
    <http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/summary/all_month.geojson>

    I am told by my QGIS installation of 2.18 on Ubuntu 16.04 that it
    is not a valid source. Anyone else have this problem and/or can
    get it to work?

    1) add vector
    2) change source type to protocol
    3) encoding is set to win 1532
    4) protocal type geojson
    5)geoson feed url

    Invalid Data Source:
    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/summary/all_month.geojson
    <http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/summary/all_month.geojson>
    is not a valid or recognized data source



    Thanks for your help!!
