make uninstall and then reinstall 2.0.11
I can recommend GNU stow for installations from source. Set up a shell alias
alias cfg='./configure --prefix=/usr/local/stow/$(basename $PWD)'
restart the shell and cd to the Gramps source directory and type 'cfg'
make; sudo make install.
If the gramps source dir is called "gramps2", then Gramps will now reside
Now cd to this directory and type
sudo stow gramps2
This will install Gramps with symlinks to /usr/local/bin, etc., even if
Gramps itself is conveniently 'stowed' under a single directory, alowing
you to have multiple versions lying around. You remove the symlinks with
sudo stow -D gramps2
