Hi again

I had a look at the link you posted re editing my fstab file but to be
honest it's way over my head, I probably could work it out given time but
i,m a 52 year old motor mechanic and I really don't think a normal user
should have to learn code to use this program the way i want to (it's simple
with other geneological programs why shopuldn't it be with this one) so I
looked for another solution, the first was running Gramps from a flash drive
with the intention of physically moving the drive from pc to pc but that
failed due to constant corrupt databases and all sorts of error messages so
I finally gave up on that, I then tried using ubuntu one, I thought that
would be that best solution because it means I could use and edit Gramps
from anywhere, I was able to get Gramps to run from my ubuntu one folder by
copying the /home/.grapms folder to /home/ubuntu one and setting the
preferences to go there, I then removed the grampsdb from /home/.gramps to
make sure I was using the right database.

For reasons I don't understand it seems I still need to have a .gramps
folder in /home or Gramps wont open even though the grampsdb file is missing
so I now have 2 .gramps folders one in /home and the other in /home/ubuntu
one but only one grampsdb file (complicated but it works), the problem is
getting my other pc to run from the same database because even though I set
identical paths in the prefrences it just writes it's own database inside
.gramps/ubuntu one so I then have 2 grampsdb folders inside the same .gramps
folder, judging from Bennys last post it seems what I'm trying to do is
perfectly possible so there's clearly something I'm misunderstanding so can
anyone please tell me where I'm going wrong here and if possible how I put
it right,

It should be impossible to have 2 grampsdb folders in the same directory on ubuntu one. Surely there must be something different?

If you have set the database path in the preferences correct, then opening the family tree manager should show you all the family trees made with the other PC (do give it time to sync though). If not, something is wrong.


Many Thanks
