i did pretty much exactly that (i.e. i copied my .gramps directory from the
backup to the new home directory) and everything came back to the way it was!
the only problem i had was that the path for the media files was wrong, but i
was able to change that without any problems, and now everything is copacetic
AND one of the first things i did was to use the (NEW?) "Make Backup"
feature, which will now become one of the things that i do before i regularly
backup my home directory, from here on out...
thanks! the problem is solved! 8)
