The python2 bindings for gdal have been split out into a separate package (python2-gdal). You'll need that after updating for the DB Manager or Processing plugins. Optional dep will be added with the update this Friday.

@kikislater @Scimmia: I asked the same on version 3, the LTR is the right place to ask, anyway I thought about it. I think Scimmia would have a bad time finding out all the places where something should be changed and what happens when LTR will have a minor upgrade? It's an effort we should ask upstream to QGIS developers. Version 3 is too much different from the preceding version. It needs less plugins and conflicts with most. Anyway I keep thinking that having a separate version 2/LTR installed is a good idea. From a developer's point of view it may not make sense, but if you are working with QGIS, switching between the two version is at least very inconvenient.

Better to have both installed ...

Scimmia commented on 2018-02-26 14:25

I guess I don't see what the big deal is. pacman -U <qgis.....pkg.tar.gz>, oh it doesn't work, pacman -U <qgis-ltr....pkg.tar.gz>. Takes less than a minute to switch.</qgis-ltr....pkg.tar.gz></qgis.....pkg.tar.gz>

+1 for in production purpose. Qgis 3 is nice but not all plugins are working : need to be converting to python3

@Scimmia It would be much much appreciated though. In order to be able to provide feedback on the preview while still have an operational qgis for production purposes... If impossible on your side, could you provide pointers on how to do it? Cheers,

I'm well aware it's possible, but I'm not going to hack this package up beyond recognition to do it.

of course, I know, if there are conflicts this could be solved changing the default target directory (/usr) to an alternative path.

Scimmia commented on 2018-02-24 15:42

Doesn't work that way. It's marked as conflicting because it actually does conflict.

XavierCLL commented on 2018-02-24 15:40

Delete the conflicts with Qgis (v3) to have the possibility of install both
