How do I see which QGIS version is installed?

Under "Help" > "About" you can find details about the installed QGIS version.

How do I see which 3Di Toolbox version is installed?

Either in the plugin-manager of Qgis under "Plugins" > "Manage and Install Plugins" or press the "3Di About" button.

I get the error "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'"

If you get the error message "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'" during installation you are likely missing the dependencies python3-setuptools and/or python3-pip from your QGIS installation.

This is probably due to having QGIS installed via the OSGeo4W Network Installer. These packages are not installed via this installer by default. There are two ways to solve this problem:

  1. Reinstall QGIS3.4 via the QGIS3.4 Standalone Installer, see installation instructions above.

  2. Install the required packages via the OSGeo4W Network Installer:

  • Open your OSGeo4W-setup, select "Advanced Install" and follow the instructions. During "Select packages" make sure you install the libraries python3-pip and python3-setuptools.

Then continue with installing the 3Di Toolbox plugin.
