* Does not work with Gramps 4.1 ( AttributeError: When using gi.repository you must not import static modules like "gobject". Please change all occurrences of "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject". See: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=709183 ) Changing "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject as gobject" makes the gramplet work.

Prerequisites

Because the Headline News Gramplet gets its information from the Gramps wiki (at https://gramps-project.org/wiki/ ) and other places you need to have a internet connection for this to work. If you don't have an internet connection, then the Headline News Gramplet won't show any information.
