Gramps has been added to the Fienix software repository.
When install gramp I got a error on loading the osmgps modules.
I try to install the missing dependencies I got this.
Everything else in Gramp works as far as I can see.

It looks good so far. Could you please test a DVD with the VLC? If you want to install something from the repository then use Synaptic. (Click on Menu, Administration, Synaptic)

Hi Tijatjj,

Unfortunately you can’t use hardware acceleration with your graphics card. You need a Radeon HD 6xxx or lower.

Thank you,any particular chipset to look for.is that what is hanging up the dvd playing . I am guessing there’s no way to shutdown the hardware acceleration.

1) Start LibreOffice
2)
The five steps listed here had no obvious effect, but the second of the next batch was very revealing.
If this does not work, please advise of the following:
1) The manufacturer of your printer
2) The output when you enter "lpstat -t" in MATE Terminal

For reasons that I don't recall, I found it necessary to connect my printer through my Raspberry Pi. When I click a "Print" I normally get "HP_OfficeJet_Pro_8710" and "HP_OfficeJet_Pro_8710_raspberrypi" in the PRINT window, and I habitually choose the latter. When I try to print from LibreOffice today, that is marked "Paused; Rejecting Jobs." But the other one has "raspberrypi" under Location, and if I choose that, it prints fine. "HP_OfficeJet_Pro_8710_01DACB" is also listed, with an ink low warning, and it too prints. Weird, but problem solved.

Just in case there might be a clue to the weirdness, here is what came up for uname and lsusb:
fienix@Fienix:~$ uname -a
Linux Fienix 5.1.0_A-EON_X5000 #1 SMP Mon May 6 11:04:35 CEST 2019 ppc64 GNU/Linux

Please use ext4 for the Fienix root file system.
