Re: WINE install failure

I would also try using Repo Man (MX Repo Manager) to switch to another one than the New Zealand repo...that one seems to have given people lots of grief in the past. Fully agree, I live relatively close to the NZ repo and should prefer it but after intermittent problems with updates over several mo...

Re: Packages request: MultiSystem & Ancestris

Thanks again oops. Have joined the forum, a lot of reading to do and some translation before I really understand Ancestris.

Re: Packages request: MultiSystem & Ancestris

After a week trying Ancentris am moving all my data over from Gramps. Ancentris does take some learning but the fact that it works with standard gedcom files makes long term projects easier than Gramps. One thing yet to solve is how best to deal with persons having more than one spouse, e.g. a Victo...

Re: Outdated Firefox in repository

Some repos have disappeared, others added as well as some that have technical problems occasionally . and the people responsible for the repos react to issues as soon as possible, often from information from users.

Re: wacom tablet not recognized

Just plugged my ancient Wacom Graphite tablet Model ET-04005A into USB and it is instantly recognised by MX-17.1. Drew a couple of shapes in LO draw OK.

Re: Packages request: MultiSystem & Ancestris

Thanks oops and Cyril for the comments about improvements in version 10 and about translations. Will delete .9 and try the beta.

Edit. Have Ancestris .10 beta running now and as predicted, conversions from Gramps are much easier. Gotta find my way around the screen next.

Re: Packages request: MultiSystem & Ancestris

Thanks Stevo, will load 0.9 and see how it accepts some of my old Gramps ged files before trying the beta. Edit: later in the day. Will reserve my judgement on Ancestris. Creating an new database similar to Gramps, but importing in the ged format not so easy as suggested. Having half of the Help not...
