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 !
