Genealogy Software

What genealogy software do you folks use? I've nearly always used Gramps, but I'm getting less and less happy with it. The past few iterations have seemed increasingly buggy with warnings about modules not loading. I'm wondering what other options are available for Linux, any you would recommend? Th...

Re: SoftMaker Free Office now available

I specifically requested that it be made available. I've used the software for years and it's proven very useful for me, and I thought it would for others as well. I contacted the devs at Softmaker and they agreed to allow MX to offer their free version. You have to choose it from the MX package ins...

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

Has anyone wondered why Android apk packages are small compared to Flatpaks and Snaps? I have. Maybe Google solved the problem with sandboxed apps without using a lot of data? I think Flatpaks and Snaps make Linux look inferior on a technical level and that's not good. I'm not saying Flatpak and Sn...

Re: Plex Media Server not working

I can get it to work doing the following: $ sudo systemctl status plexmediaserver We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things: #1) Respect the privacy of others. #2) Think before you type. #3) With great power comes gr...
