GRAMPS and some Gtk versions

  • Some Gtk versions seem not to properly refresh the GUI (need to use the mouse cursor), see bug 4863.
  • Some Gtk versions have a refresh issue on Citation TreeView (3.4.x) after an edition, see bug 5688.
  • Incremental search and synchronization with typed letters, see bug 1450.
  • New row/line on Census gramplet (addon), see bug 5688.

GRAMPS freezes and crashes with ATK / GNOME Assistive Technologies enabled

There have been multiple reports of long freezes and crashes of GRAMPS when refreshing the people or place tree view, e.g. after editing a person or changing the Name Display Format. They are related to the use of GNOME Assistive Technologies (ATK/GAIL). If you experience similar problems try going into System -> Preferences -> Assistive Technologies, unchecking "Enable assistive technologies" and logging out and in again.

Gramps and AttributeError

This message is often related to your data into your FamilyTree. See AttributeError

GRAMPS cannot import media with non-ASCII characters on filename

If Python returns a codec/UTF8 warning and this file was pasted from an external support (CD, HD, USB key), maybe filename has been corrupted ! 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. Now you will be able to import this file into Gramps !

GRAMPS cannot set date greater than 21

Gramps-3.0.4 under Jaunty 9.04 cannot uses date editor or media reference editor. Upgrading to 3.1.2 fixes this issues.
