Did you know Gramps 2.2.6 is included in the repositories ? Did you also know that's it's built upon the GTK widget set in python ?



 apt-cache show gramps



 gives the following:



 GRAMPS, the Genealogical Research and Analysis Management Programming

 System, is an Open Source genealogy program written in Python, using

 the GTK/GNOME interface.



Here's what I'd do. Install the regular version of gramps:



 sudo apt-get install gramps



then try to install your new deb file



 sudo dpkg -i <gramps deb file>



and see if it works then. Maybe you've got unmet dependencies from the GTK set that you'll pick up installing gramps from the ubuntu repositories.



Good luck !



Greg
