If you are upgrading from a previous version, you must carry out the upgrade process. If you do not have a backup, the Gramps developers cannot be responsible for any data loss

Official support Only the source code on the Linux platform is officially released and supported as Gramps developers use and test the source code on that platform, fixing any problems that arise due to upgrades. The source release is intended for building from source by packagers and developers. This page describes the Linux packages, MS Windows installers and Mac OS X bundles that have been provided by 'community support' for download and installation by users.

The latest released version is Gramps 4.1.3. This version may not yet be available for installation on your platform.

Linux

Distribution GUI pkg manager CLI pkg manager Current versions Notes
Linux Mint sudo apt-get install gramps Nadia: Gramps 3.4.0-1

Redhat sudo yum install gramps
openSUSE openSUSE 12.3: Gramps 3.4.2 available versions
Slackware Slackware 14.0: Gramps 3.4.2 available versions

See list of Gramps package versions for various Linux distributions, but these are RMP or DEB packages.

Gnome and KDE You can use both, but Gramps fits in better with GNOME. For KDE there are some minor issues due to some (GTK) issues outside of Gramps. Check the KDE page to know what these problems might be. For GNOME, there are some issues due to some (ATK/GAIL) issues outside of Gramps. Check the Known issues to know what these problems might be. Also, you might look at XdgUtils.

Linux live CD Demonstration Obtaining the CD (727 MB) Linux Genealogy CD based on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat). Allows you to trial a pre-installed Gramps 3.2.5, without touching anything on the hard drive. To start this boot the Computer with this Live Linux Desktop on a CD in the CD/DVD-ROM Drive. (Requires that you write this image to a CD-ROM using CD-Burner software eg:Nero, Imgburn..). If you are interested in Gramps, but are afraid to actually install it or unable to install it (not your PC, windows, no internet at home, work laptop, ...), then try out our Linux Genealogy CD. It runs without installing on the hard disk and contains a collection of open source, free, genealogy programs. You can then install Ubuntu 10.10 and Gramps from the CD anytime you like.
