QGIS 3 Tools & Processing Workaround

QGIS 3 can't seem to find external tools, including Python, and GDAL tools and some needed for Processing. There used to be settings for this but they're gone.

For now the workaround is to go to the QGIS Preferences → System.

  • Under the Environment section, turn on Use Custom Variables.
  • Add (+) a variable
  • Select Prepend from the Apply popup
  • Enter PATH for the variable
  • Enter the following for the value:
    • /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/bin:/Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework/Versions/2.2/Programs:
  • Quit QGIS 3 and start it up again, GDAL tools and processing algorithms should find needed tools now.

QGIS 3.0.0-3

QGIS 3.0.0-3 should fix the non-working GRASS problem. The key was my adding the "3" to the app name with a space, the GRASS internals didn't like that. So I removed the space - it's now The installer removes the contents of the original QGIS, but not the app folder itself, so you need to delete that from your Applications folder.

It also looks like the rebuild fixed the missing SAGA processing tools.

On to figuring out why GDAL tools do not work…

QGIS 3 Must use Python 3

Because QGIS links the python library, you must install the Python 3.6. You can't substitute another python 3 installation. Sorry, that's the way it is.

QGIS 3 is finally ready! As noted previously for GDAL 2.2, big packaging changes include minimum OS X Yosemite and Python 3. Also note that during installation it needs internet access to install the necessary Python modules. QGIS 3 installs as "QGIS", so it can be used alongside QGIS 2.

Currently it is missing the globe plugin, I'll work on adding that next. But it does include the new 3D features.

I've done little testing in my rush to get this ready. …argh, looks like the SAGA Processing provider is not working.
