I'm using Gramps 4.2.2, the version that comes with Linux Mint 18.3. I've been using Gramps for a number of years - just let me say how good I think it is!
I'm using the Family Lines report. I'm unable to get it to show places, even though the "include places" option is checked. I can see from searching the mailing list than someone asked this question some years ago, with no answer. I appreciate that I'm on a relatively old version of Gramps - is this a known problem that has been fixed in a later version? If so, should I upgrade, and how?
Many of my places are on the "do not appear" list, but not all, and none appear. I tried changing "unknown" to "town" with no effect. Other graph displays e.g. chart view works fine and show everything so I guess this is not the same problem.
>Only the older unsupported version seems to come with Mint!
Tell me about it! I will look into upgrading. Thanks.
Always a good idea to upgrade to the current release especially as Gramps has had many improvements and bug fixes, you can checkout the development change log or blog for a general idea of changes/improvements etc:
