README.md

The Gramps Project ( https://gramps-project.org ) Build Statuscodecov.io

We strive to produce a genealogy program that is both intuitive for hobbyists and feature-complete for professional genealogists.

Please read the COPYING file first.

Please read the INSTALL file if you intend to build from source.

Requirements

The following packages MUST be installed in order for Gramps to work:

The following three packages with GObject Introspection bindings (the gi packages)

The following package is needed for full translation of the interface to your language:

  • language-pack-gnome-xx

Translation of GTK elements to your language, with xx your language code; e.g. for Dutch you need language-pack-gnome-nl. The translation of the Gramps strings is included with the gramps source.

The following packages are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to be installed:

  • osmgpsmap

Used to show maps in the geography view. It may be osmgpsmap, osm-gps-map, or python-osmgpsmap, but the Python bindings for this must also be present, so gir1.2-osmgpsmap-1.0. Without this the GeoView will not be active, see https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Geography_Category

  • Graphviz

    Enable creation of graphs using Graphviz engine. Without this, three reports cannot be run. Obtain it from: http://www.graphviz.org or try graphviz and python3-pygraphviz from your packages.

  • PyICU

Improves localised sorting in Gramps. In particular, this applies to sorting in the various views and in the Narrative Web output. It is particularly helpful for non-Latin characters, for non-English locales and on MS Windows and Mac OS X platforms. If it is not available, sorting is done through built-in libraries. PyICU is fairly widely available through the package managers of distributions. See http://pyicu.osafoundation.org/ (These are Python bindings for the ICU package. https://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyICU/)

  • Ghostscript

    Used by Graphviz reports to help create PDF's

The following packages are optional:

  • gtkspell

Enable spell checking in the notes. Gtkspell depends on enchant. A version of gtkspell with gobject introspection is needed, so minimally version 3.0.0

  • rcs

The GNU Revision Control System (RCS) can be used to manage multiple revisions of your family trees. See info at https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_-_Manage_Family_Trees#Archiving_a_Family_Tree Only rcs is needed, NO python bindings are required

  • PIL

Python Image Library (PILLOW) is needed to crop images and also to convert non-JPG images to JPG so as to include them in LaTeX output. (For Python3 a different source may be needed, python-imaging or python-pillow or python3-pillow)

  • GExiv2

Enables Gramps to manage Exif metadata embedded in your media. Gramps needs version 0.5 or greater. See https://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=GEPS_029:_GTK3-GObject_introspection_Conversion#GExiv2_for_Image_metadata

  • ttf-freefont

More font support in the reports

  • geocodeglib

A library use to associate a geographical position (latitude, longitude) to a place name. This is used if you already have osmgpsmap installed. If installed, when you add or link a place from the map, you have a red line at the end of the table for selection. Debian, Ubuntu, ... : gir1.2-geocodeglib-1.0 Fedora, Redhat, ... : geocode-glib openSUSE : geocode-glib ArchLinux : geocode-glib ...

  • fontconfig

Python bindings of fontconfig are required for displaying genealogical symbols

Optional packages required by Third-party Addons

Third-party Addons are written by users and developers and unless stated are not officially part of Gramps. For more information about Addons see: https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Third-party_Plugins

Prerequistes required for the following Addons to work:

No longer needed:

  • Since Gramps 4.2: gir-webkit

  • Since Gramps 4.0: pygoocanvas, pygtk, pyexiv2

  • Since Gramps 3.3: python-enchant Enchant

  • Since Gramps 3.2: python glade bindings

  • Since Gramps 3.1: yelp - Gnome help browser. No offline help is shipped see Gramps website for User manual
