Installing Gramps using MacPorts

Current version available from MacPorts is: 3.4.7

  1. Download and install the latest Xcode tools from http://developer.apple.com/technology/Xcode.html
  2. Download and install Macports from http://www.macports.org/install.php
  3. Open Terminal.app from /Applications/Utilities and enter these commands:
sudo port selfupdate
sudo port install gramps

If you are running a recent version of OS X (Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion, at this point), much of the support software is pre-compiled and will install as quickly as it is downloaded.

Running Gramps

Use Terminal to start gramps:

gramps

GraphViz

You may wish to install GraphViz to handle some of the graphical reports that Gramps can produce. MacPorts can provide you with either graphical or command-line based versions of either a 'stable' or 'development' release of GraphViz. 'graphviz-gui' is recommended unless you know that you have a need for the development version. Install with:

sudo port install graphviz-gui

Issues

You can search the MacPorts bug tracker for any issues related to the Gramps port:

https://trac.macports.org/search?portsummarysearch=on

Please don't hesitate to create a ticket if you find a problem that you believe is related to the MacPorts build process.
