GRAMPS is supported in Ubuntu but you have to add the "universe" repository.
I'm not at home so I can't copy my sources.list in this email, but you can
find info about the repositories here:
Then just go to the Applications menu and then the bottom choice (I think
it's "System Tools" or something like that) and click Add/Remove Programs.
Then choose GRAMPS from the "Other" section. (You may have to click "more
programs" to see it.) Of course, once you add the repository you can also
aptitude install gramps
or apt-get or whatever you usually use. FYI if you feel a little edgy,
Breezy has a much more recent version of GRAMPS and will probably soon have
the newest version with the new website generator. If you wanted to upgrade
to that you just find/replace all "hoary" with "breezy" in the file
/etc/apt/sources.list. Then aptitude dist-upgrade.
