New Ancestris user
« on: July 19, 2017, 13:50:29 »
I have been involved in Genealogy for about 40 years and working with genealogy programs and GEDCOM files but mostly on Windows. In recent years I have developed a dislike for windows which has created a problem for me as my genealogy program is only available in Windows. I recently found links to the Ancestris and the availability for it to run on ubuntu-Linix. I am giving the program a try and although it seems to be fairly new it is a well developed program and meets my needs on Linux to keep track of my genealogy data. Thanks for a great program. I have 6500 individuals in my GEDCOM.

Hi
Welcome, Donald.
I, too, am new to Ancestris and very much enjoying the learning curve.
I also wanted to introduce myself, and, thank Francios for his wonderful efforts in helping me.

Hello Dale,
The concept for Ancestris is : Users helping users ;-)
So if we can help, we will help. Welcome onboard. Francois

Hi,
If OpenJDK is missing, you have to install it first.
A search with Google gave me that :
Haiku Port Project
The Haiku port project is sponsored by the OpenJDK Porters Group, with the bulk of contributors belonging also to the Haiku Java Team.
This project will deliver a complete OpenJDK port to the Haiku operating system.


Once java installed, you will be able to install Ancestris and run it. Francois

Moin Dieter,

Yesterday I wrote a help e-mail to one of the haiku gurus.
Maybe I'll get an answer after Easter.
If I get help, I will report it.
Great. It will be useful to other people.
This "special" archive of Ancestris for Haiku has been made by an ancestris user : Dominique Baron, so I suppose he was running Haiku too.
Maybe it would have been better to open another thread for this subject, as it is special to a certain operating system.

Viele Grüße
Francois

Moin Francois!

Unfortunately, it was not possible to marry Haiku + OpenJDK + Ancestris together!
Unfortunately I could not find Dominique Baron. EDIT: http://fr.ancestris.org/index.php?title=Utilisateur:Lemovice ???
For family reasons, I currently have little time and rest to thoroughly test Ancestris.
But there is more under the hood than I expected! It's going to be exciting - maybe my "new" genealogy software ?!

Best regards,
Dieter

What about Francois, is he no longer on the Ancestris team?

Haiku 32Bit / 64Bit + OpenJDK is (currently) not available, so I first installed Linux (Ubuntu 17.10.x). It worked ... after several attempts ... with hanging and choking ... the user-friendliness has amazed me ;) Oh dear!
And the next stumbling block ...
Please, how can I test Ancestris 0.10 with all the new features on Ubuntu?
Thanks for a simple explanation!

Best regards,
Dieter
