Sorry for the late answer, the bug tracker is a better medium than this list.

The error you mentioned indicates you probably removed the ~/.gramps directory where database files are kept. New versions of Gramps no longer work with .grdb files to avoid this problem.

The way to fix a corrupted grdb should work: http://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Recover_corrupted_grdb#Version_2.2.x:_GRDB_corruption

If problems, mail me the fail, and I'll convert it to the .gramps xml format.

Greetings,
Benny

Hello, 

          I am running the latest version of Gramps from the software market in Ubuntu 10.04. When I attempt to open a saved gramps file (from ~1 year ago) I recieve the "/tmp/tmpOS8JBM could not be opened" error message and am unable to proceed. I have tried this on multiple computers with both live disks and installed partitions of Ubuntu. 
          Any help would be appreciated. If this is a Linux bug and not related to the program I apologize for pushing it through your bug network.


Thanks for a great program and your help,
-Michael
