Gramps 4.0.1 - Installing problems


Hi,

I'd like to install the genealogy program Gramps on Linux openSUSE 13.1. Installing with YAST-1-Click works fine and succesfull. But when I try to start there comes following error code:
"grampslocale.WARNING: No valid locale settings found, using US English
Gdk, Gtk or Pango typelib not installed.
Install Gnome Introspection, and pygobject version 3.3.2 or later.
Install then instrospection data for Gdk, Gtk and Pango"

I don't find Gnome Introspection or similar in my YAST. So what exactly should be installed to make gramps run?
Thanks for help,
Sebastian

Try looking for gtk-devel, pango-devel or gtk2-devel in YAST. Or you could try yast install GObject Introspection in Google, which yields this promising looking link http://software.opensuse.org/downloa...-introspection

Haven't tried openSUSE in a while, hope that helps a bit

Well, you've got two other choices. You could try building it from source, as we do in slackware. You can find all the dependencies and build them too; if you look at Slackbuilds.org it's pretty easy to track them down. However, there's also a good chance you'll mess up your SUSE install with those library builds not using YAST. You have been warned. Still, it's possible. You might also try typing in the names of the dependencies in YAST. Maybe you'll get lucky. Start with gnome-python.

Or, you could run the windows version under WINE. Haven't tried it and seems goofy, but that might work until you get the native version working.
