== MS Windows ==
*A platform is community supported when users have created an installable version for that platform. Full functionality of GRAMPS is not guaranteed and some components may be disabled. Developers are dependent on the community to fix any issues that arise. The GRAMPS developers aim to have GRAMPS working on all platforms, but have no resources to do specific testing to assure this is the case on release of a new version.

Linux and BSD distributions

Most linux distributions come bundled with a version of Gramps, though it's not always the most recent version and it may not have been installed by default. Still it is recommended to use the Gramps version that comes with your distribution.

Below are ways to install Gramps on some of the more popular distributions:

Linux: Install latest version

If your distribution doesn't ship with Gramps or you wish to install a different version than it ships with, you could try to install the latest version of Gramps manually. Instructions are given below for a number of distributions.

Warning

This should only be attempted by experienced users, and after you have backed up your Family Tree.

The version of Gramps that has been included in your distribution will have been tested to work with the components in that distribution. If you try to install a different version of Gramps there is a possibility that the components needed for the new version of Gramps are not available for your distribution, or they are available, but don't work properly. You might not discover that there is a problem till you have already done some work with the new version of Gramps.

If you already have Gramps installed, and you are only making a 'point' upgrade (i.e. from Gramps x.y.z to x.y.z+1, e.g. from 3.4.3 to 3.4.4), then it is likely but not certain that Gramps will continue to work. However, if the change is much greater, especially if it is a major version change (e.g. from 2.y.z to 3.y.z), then the danger that it does not work properly is much greater.

Notes

[1] Backup to Gramps XML. You will find backup in the Family Tree menu of recent Gramps versions, otherwise use export in the same menu but uncheck privacy options in the Exporter Assistant in order to export all data

[2] Alternatively, you can click and hold on the disk icon at the top of the window of the mounted disk, and then option-drag to the Applications folder. This will create a new folder containing all the files, including the README and NEWS.
