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 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.

Obtaining the CD

The CD can be obtained via:

  • The SourceForge, GRAMPS download page
  • Centralized download. Thanks to the hosting kindly donated to GRAMPS, the CD images can be downloaded via:
    • http protocol.
    • ftp protocol.
    • rsync (rsync://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/gramps/) protocol.
  • Purchase a CD. An alternative to downloading the CD image is to purchase the physical CD. The CD is currently available for purchase in Australia and the USA.
  • Current and previous versions of the CD are also stored on Gramps website


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.
