apparently, you can install 2.2.9 with the gramps_2.2.9-1_all.deb on ubuntu


2007/10/23, Benny Malengier < >:
There is a problem with your autoload and mime types.

Please, go to directory ~/.gramps, and open file keys.ini
In the section [behavior], make sure autoload is off, so it needs to read:


Now, please install 2.2.8 from here:
Believe me, it is orders more stable than what is in debian stable.

Can you now start GRAMPS?

Crash when starting - program unusable
Similar problems happened before, but program was working properly a few
days ago
I realise that a new gramps version is available, but this version comes
with debian stable (etch)
