Running Mint and Win 10/11 with Gramps 5.1.5
After restarting my work on the metadata viewer plugin - had to reinstall Mint and all that goes with Python, except for the Gramps code - I have come up against a puzzle.
I am trying to find and install the Prerequisite check gramplet, but cannot find it under Linux, while my old install on Win 10 has it installed (still) and with my latest AIO-64 5.15.-1 under Win 11, I had no problem finding and installing it.
Yet the web page Addon:Prerequisites Checker Gramplet - Gramps
does not say that this gramplet is only intended for Win or Mac OS.
What am I missing?
After checking for hidden plugins, none were hidden
Downloaded your version from Github, installed the files in ~/.gramps/gramps51/plugins and all seems good, as far as I can tell, though I am still getting used to all the data presented by the plugin.
Assume the issues mentioned on your Github page refer to your version (only?)
Understood. I have just (sort of, I think) run into a similar problem with the metadata plugin.
I had wanted to confirm that Exiftool and its interface were available on the system and advise the user that these were needed etc, but all of the checking is/seems to be done long before the plugin gets control.
Presumably, that is/was the reason for the proposal to expand the gpr.py code to do this checking etc.
Unfortunately I was unable to make it work.
If you haven’t installed it, you might want to grab the Isotammi ZIPinstall addon. It will find the ZIPs created as downloads from GitHub respositories in your download folder. Then install/overwrite the folder contents in your plugins folder. With a minimum of fuss.
