Gramps error in LMDE

Postby zkab » Mon Sep 26, 2011 6:38 am

Have 2 computers:
Computer 1: Katya
Computer2: LMDE

Have installed Gramps 3.3.0-1 ( on both computers ... on Computer 1 with downloading and on Computer 2 from repository.
Gramps on Computer 1 works OK but Gramps on Computer 2 has problems when importing the earlier backuped database (gpkg).

27921: ERROR: line 142: Unhandled exception
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gramps/gui/", line 1292, in import_data
File "/usr/share/gramps/gui/", line 165, in import_file
if self.check_errors(filename):
File "/usr/share/gramps/gui/", line 211, in check_errors
elif os.path.isdir(filename):
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 41, in isdir
st = os.stat(s)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode characters in position 40-41: ordinal not in range(128)

What could be the problem with Gramps on LMDE ?
