Additional software GRAMPS can benefit from
* '''Gnome-print''': It adds the ability to directly print, to preview, and to generate fully internationalized PS and PDF output. At this time, one needs to install gnome-python-desktop to obtain this package (it might be known under different names, eg on debian python-gnome2-desktop).
* '''Spell checking''': Installing python-gnome2-extras provides the gtkspell module, which adds spell checking in the notes
* '''Graphviz''', '''Inkscape''': Gramps can make nice Genealogical trees (relationship graphs). These are generated by the Graphviz package, which defines a code (dot), as well as programs to produce graphs (dotty, to be called from command line). This gives you as researcher most power over how your tree will look, but has a learning curve. Also, [ kgraphviewer] works fine with dot generated by GRAMPS. An alternative is to make a graphical report, converting the tree to an svg file, which you then can open/edit/refine in eg Inkscape.
* '''ttf-freefont''': Useful as a font that supports a large subset of the unicode and is a true type. This works well with both gnomeprint and graphviz output.
