    will this update the Ubuntu version automatically?

  • Benny

    No, you need to download the .deb file on our sourceforge download page. Double click on it after download, and your package manager will ask you password to install it

  • Bernard

    does this gramps release use the same berkeley DB release, in the three OS Mac OSX, Linux and Windows ?

  • Benny

    No, they will be different. So best don’t work from a network drive with different OS!. Use .gramps or .gpkg files to move between operating systems.

    The alternate dates for births/deaths (such as baptisms and burial dates) are still not written in italics as they were. This creates a problem when doing my sources because the italtic dates being displayed lets me know that I have entered the data correctly (as a baptism/burial) as opposed to mistaking a baptism date for a birth date.

    […] order to fix one issue introduced in 3.4.4 and to continue support for the 3.4.x branch, the Gramps team releases version […]

    I am trying to compile 4.0 on Scientific Linux. When I run python install I get /usr/bin/python cannot execute binary file.
    I am a new kid any reading suggestions

  • Benny

    Please very that Scientific Linux has the requirements for Gramps. See the README and INSTALL file for pieces Gramps needs to work. Scientific Linux typically only has older versions of software, as it wants to be as stable as possible, so using 3.4.5 instead of 4.0 might be the only option. You can run a newer linux inside virtualbox though on Scientific Linux
