Transferring filters

Keeping gramps family trees synchronised between two 
computers is mostly OK; but on exporting a gpkg one loses 
all the custom filters defined on the PC.
Where are the filters kept? Can one just copy the folder 
over to the other machine? Are there any problems in 
transferring filters defined in 3.4.8 to 4.1.x?

Re: Merging two trees without creating a "fake baby"?

Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you very much for all your answers!
Second, sorry for not answering earlier, I'm swamped at the moment (work + planning the wedding, it's in 3
weeks!!) and only got to trying your suggestions this morning.
I hope you won't mind trying to answer all of your suggestions at once for the sake of mailing-list sanity :)

So, to recap :
- I tried downloading/installing/running Family Tree, it looked promising, BUT: I have a Mac so tried it in
my Parallels VM but it tries to create a directory in a folder where it apparently doesn't have the rights to
and just shuts down with an error msg... It's been too long since I actually used a Windows to try and debug
that, so I tried online, but I haven't found how to change the online version's appearance to have a tree
centered on us AND where both branches are unfolded? (might try again tomorrow)
- I tried installing the "Family Tree" add-on for Gramps, as it looked like exactly what I need but alas it
fails with my version (4.1.0-1), something about "Style Object" not being iterable (SVG export, PDF msg
is different but still about "Style")? Should I copy the full error msg?
- I've just finished installing VizGraph but I don't see any new diagrams options?
- I haven't tried any of the "filter this or that" options because I've pretty much no idea what you're
talking about and virtually no time to read through the whole doc about filters. I'm already late for work
as it is with spending 2hrs trying the above different options this morning, no breakfast, and I'm afraid
I'm getting grumpy/frustrated :(

I clearly am lost, I don't get many of the concepts that you guys are referring to, and I'm rather surprised at
how complicated all this is "just to print a tree"... :/
I'm sorry if I sound ungrateful, 'cause I'm really not, but I'm at my wits' end (yes, they're short at the moment).

I was wondering, if any of you have a working "Family Tree" add-on for gramps, would you be willing to receive
my file and try exporting it, at least to make sure it doesn't come from my file?
Or to actually just export the whole thing in SVG with a few criterias that I'd provide (believe me, there're
not that many)? I'm ready to spring for a few beers on paypal is how lost and frustrated and
(Continue reading)

Django export error

Hi,

I started looking at gramps-connect and installed the Django import/export utility. However, the format choices available for export do not show Django. A check of the Plugin Manager, Loaded Plugins, shows "Fail, ExportDjango.py, Visible, No module named webapp.settings".

Running Gramps CLI produces something similar:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gramps/gen/plug/_manager.py", line 219, in load_plugin _module = self.import_plugin(pdata) File "/usr/share/gramps/gen/plug/_manager.py", line 251, in import_plugin module = __import__(pdata.mod_name) File "/home/sturdy/.gramps/gramps34/plugins/Django/ExportDjango.py", line 60, in <module> import webapp.settings as default_settings ImportError: No module named webapp.settings None Is this a bug or am I missing a component or something? Best, Sturdy

Place completion for 4.1

Hello Gramps users,

according to the Wiki site for the place completion tool, the most 
recent version it works with is 3.4.x:
https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Place_completion_tool

Is there an equivalent for Gramps v4.1.0-1?
Does someone work on the plugin's upgrade?

Regards,
ComFreek

Dashboard Statistics Gramplet problem

Hi

I’m using GRAMPS V4.1.0-1 on OSX.

I get reasonable results for my database in terms of numbers of people in the different categories. The one
that seemed odd was the five ‘disconnected individuals’ as I only expected two. Double-clicking on
the entry though brings up an empty list.

Is there another way I can find out which ones it thinks are disconnected and try to work out why it doesn’t
show them in the detailed list.

Thanks

Nick

Re: Merging two trees without creating a "fake baby"?

What do you mean by "fictional child"?

Note that I keep the two sides of my living tree in two separate Gramps tress.   My, my wife, my children's names, and those of my parents are in both, but in one they are just stubs;  the other has all the Residence data, etc.

So, when it's time to merge them for some huge project,  I
1) make backups of my two databases,
2) create a new tree (let's call it The One Huge Tree), and
3) import both backup databases into The One Huge Tree.

Because some people are in both trees, there will naturally be some duplication in The One Huge Tree.  So, I go in and merge the relevant families and people (there are functions in Gramps to merge families, people, events, places, etc).  Thus, after about 20 minutes of work, The One Huge Tree has no more duplicates, and it's nice and pretty.

Hi everyone,


I'm VERY new to the genealogy world, and I have a (hopefully) quick question about gramps/trees...

Basically, I have an uncle who's really into genealogy (but he (self-admitedly) sucks at computers), and for our wedding ceremony, he exported me a .ged file with a tree for my family and a tree for my husband's, both in the same .ged file.
Since we plan on printing the thing on a 3x2m tarp on a frame for the event and his own software (geneatique?) apparently can't export anything vector based, or anything above A1 size, he sent it to me so that we could output a vector file with our own styles, etc., with Gramps.

BUT I can't for the file of me figure out how to output ONE tree for the both of us (since we're married) without creating a fictional child...?
My uncle had the same problem in his software, but a friend told me Gramps could solve that for us... but no dice yet.

Apart from exporting both trees separately and then joining them (ie. in Illustrator), is there something I'm missing?


Thanks a lot for your attention and help!

Recording years of military service

Hi,

How do I record that someone served from 7 May 1919 through 7 Dec 1936?

Do I use the Between modifier?

ADMIN: Upgrade of wiki...

I have just upgraded the wiki application to the latest version.

It is a pretty 'touchy' application, and does a fair bit of strange 
caching which always makes me nervous when I upgrade, as it sometimes 
ends up being successful even when the pages render pretty awful first time.

I *think* I've got it functioning properly, apart from the SearchFeed 
extension, which I have currently disabled.  We use about 5 or 6 custom 
extensions to provide specific functionality, but as these are 'third 
party', they are not always being maintained, and eventually (like this 
one, I fear?) get to the point that an upgrade breaks them.

I can try to find an alternative for this one, if whichever ones of you 
developers are using it will let me know what you really require.

Until then, let me know if things don't work/look right for you, OK?
