Linux Genealogy CD Rom label

The Linux Genealogy Desktop CD 6.1 (Released: 2010-11-29) (The CD is available only for the x86 architecture.)

Includes the following pre-installed genealogy software:

  • Gramps 3.2.5

As well as GraphViz the program that draws pretty charts and graphs in Gramps.

This Live CD is based on the Ubuntu 10.10 (The Maverick Meerkat ) Desktop CD.

In addition to the Live Session, this disk also allows permanent installation of Linux and genealogical software on your computer's hard drive. This way you achieve adequate speed and the ability to save your data, and can do real work with your Linux software. Everything is similar to the Live Session, except that this is a permanent setup.

Translations

If after installation, your desktop is not fully translated to your selected locale:

  1. have a look at Menu -> System -> Administration -> Languages support [1]
  2. or manually download packages with your language code. Then under a console:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

LibreOffice

Developers

Thanks to Alex Roitman, the details to create the Live CD are now available for future development. If you would like to contribute to this please email the gramps-developers mailing list.

Ways to go ?

  • A genealogy tablet ?
    • I wouldn't dream of doing genealogy research without a real keyboard and a big monitor.
    • A tablet may be useful for presentations (showing off). Figuring out how to install gramps (a subset) on an iPad or a Honeycomb tablet (Jython?) might be a better use of time than spinning a custom system.
    • OTOH, making a nice UI for a tablet would be an interesting project. (I can just see a bunch of people I know futzing with Gramps during sacrament meeting. <g>)

There is a script for OpenEmbedded support or buildroot, crosstool-NG, PTXdist, ...

  • Consider Lubuntu or Xbuntu as a base instead of the full (fat!) Ubuntu.
  • The people I would share this with would want it to include PAF (works with wine) and Family Search Indexing (I still have to try this.)
