Prerequisites Checker Gramplet on the Dashboard

The Prerequisites Checker Gramplet is a diagnostic tool to help work out if users have the required prerequisites installed as well as the latest version of Gramps.

Also helps on OS's like MicroSoft(Windows) and Apple(MacOS) where it's difficult for users to use the command line to get information on Gramps via ( gramps -v )!


Usage

context menu to add Prerequisites Checker Gramplet to Dashboard
  • Load your Family Tree and then select an empty area on the Dashboard and from the Add a gramplet menu select Prerequisites Checker Gramplet.


You may use the context menu (right click) and Select All to copy the text to be added to a bug report if requested by a developer.

Once you have finished with the Prerequisites Checker Gramplet remove it from the Dashboard otherwise, it slows down Gramps by refreshing every time you change views!

Prerequisites

None as this gramplet test for the presence of them.
