You are using a very old version of GRAMPS. Not sure about this bug. You use python 2.3, I think GRAMPS needs 2.4 .... (error is: sort() takes no keyword arguments, however, see to see it does accept reverse ), or this is a bug fixed in version 2.2.10, which contains all bug fixes over your 2.2.6 version.

You might have python2.4 or python2.5 installed too, try to start GRAMPS with that, you can edit the file /usr/bin/gramps and change the python executable.

Anyway, GRAMPS is now version 3.0.4 (which needs python 2.5 by the way), if you have a more recent installation, you might try that out. There is also a live cd available from our website.
