This page describes bugs that may appear in the gtk-osx port of gramps for Mac. It only describes the current bugs, those to be found with a system built according to the instructions on the Mac gtk-osx port page. Please add your own observations here. Bug tickets will be submitted to the GRAMPS bug tracker if patches are available.

Present issues

Export crashes after exporting archive

The export database feature fails to terminate after having exported the database archive. The workaround is to click "x" the kill button in the top corner of the main gramps window, which stops everything. The exported archive should be correct.

Trying to look at the pedigree is not a good idea

Clicking on the pedigree view gets

1713: ERROR: gramps.py: line 160: Unhandled exception
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/Users/trial2/gtk/inst/share/gramps/DataViews/PedigreeView.py", line 187, in realize
   self.context = self.window.cairo_create()
Error: NULL pointer

which keeps going forever until I pick "force quit" from the apple menu and kill the python. Then when I restart gramps from the command line again, it just leaps into executing the same error again, and again, and again. I think that's because gramps starts up trying to display the pedigree view again, and it always crashes in the same way. I can't find the particular file to edit to change the startup view. I just did rm -rf .gramps to fix it, which destroys the entire gramps database. To work around losing the database, unset edit - preferences - Remember last view displayed in gramps before clicking on the pedigree view. At least then you don't have to delete the database.
