Trying to update to newest release (5.1.2) of GRAMPS. I’ve been using the portable version of GRAMPS from portableapps.com which hasn’t been updated in quite a while. Insofar as I have to be able to run it in portable fashion I was pleased to see that GRAMPS now uses an environment variable named GRAMPSHOME to locate user data. Therefore, I’ve installed GRAMPS 5.1.2 for Windows using my own method for portability and it seems to be working pretty good. Although I must admit I haven’t done much yet.
Major problem seems to be that I haven’t figured out how to set the base path for media in a way that utilizes the environment variable. GRAMPS 5.1.2 seems to insist on ending up with a fixed drive letter in the settings. Is there a way to store media relative to GRAMPSHOME?
