They seem to be are related to the use of GNOME Assistive Technologies(ATK/GAIL).  * Gnome 2. xIf you experience similar problems try going into {{man menu|System -> Preferences -> Assistive Technologies}}, '''unchecking "''' ''Enable assistive technologies" and ''.* Ubuntu 12.04 LTSIf you experience similar problems try going into {{man menu|System Settings -> Keyboard -> Universal Access}},'''Disable''' all assistive technologies. Then logging out and in again. You can also try this into a console: $ sudo gedit /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory/%gconf-tree.xmlor sudo gedit /var/lib/gconf/./%gconf-tree.xmlor $ sudo gedit /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaultsor $ sudo gedit .gconf/desktop/gnome/accessibility/keyboard/%gconf.xmlLocate this part: <dir name="accessibility"> <dir name="keyboard"> <entry name="enable" ... type="bool" value="true"/> </dir>and set ''enable'' to '''false'''. ====See also====* Gramps bug {{bug|3069}} CLOSED: GtkTreeView is very slow / crashes with Assistive Technologies / ATK / a11y enabled* [ GNOME Bug 577098 - GtkTreeView (lists, Nautilus) is very slow with Assistive Technologies enabled (at-spi)], Status: UNCONFIRMED* [ GNOME Bug 571596 - GTK_MODULES=gail:atk-bridge slows down incredibly TreeStore in pygtk ], Status: RESOLVED / DUPLICATE of 577098* [ GNOME Bug 587020 - GtkTreeView crawls with a11y enabled], Status: RESOLVED / Resolution: DUPLICATE of 577098 ===No horizontal scrollbars=== * Gtk+3 bug from versions 3.8 to 3.10.6 ==Database == === Gramps runs out of locks ===With a large database, Gramps can "run out of available locks". For 140.000 people you should use: max_locks 300000 and max_objects 300000 The easiest way to do this is to create an empty database the add a file DB_CONFIG to the database directory before importing (see gramps -l output for the directory of a specific family tree. Contents of this DB_CONFIG file should be:  #may want to fiddle with cachesize also #set_cachesize 0 200000000 2 set_lk_max_locks 300000 set_lk_max_objects 300000  See bug report below.

It seems correct on screen but not on command line. Your OS was not able to properly set the encoding used on your external support. The [ replacement character] will be often a "�" (black diamond with a white question mark). You can try to fix the filename by setting the correct character.cgi?idNow you will be able to import this file into Gramps ! =571596 GNOME Bug]=Reports == === Gramps cannot display some characters into reports === RTF (''C style escape'') and LaTeX (''latin1'') file format backends on output not initially designed for a unicode support. It is possible to get strange non-ASCII character handling when using these formats. It could be very specific, because it has been tested and improved since many versions, but still possible. * {{bug|3802}} relationship graph URL's not working with PDF format
