GnuCash Installation [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have been using kubuntu for over a year. Release 9.04 had too many problems for me. So, I've switched to Mandriva Power Pack 2010. I did a completely new install of Mandriva onto my Sony Vaio laptop. I also have a Windows partition. I've had no problems with the installation.

 

Over the past year, while using kubuntu, I tried kmymoney. I could not get it to reconcile my accounts properly. I loaded GnuCash from the kubuntu repositories and it worked great for me.

 

I've tried finding GnuCash using the "Install & Remove Software" routine. I've searched for GnuCash. I get "No results" in the results window.

 

I believe this is different from the earlier post in that I am not updating a previous edition of Mandriva, rather this is a brand new installation.

 

I like the KDE environment and I know that GnuCash is gnome program. GnuCash has worked for me and I've got my accounts saved currently on a flash drive. I'd like to get back to using it. Any help would be appreciated.

 

I'm still a newbie when it comes to using commands. If you wish me to run commands, please help me by being specific. Assume I know nothing.

 

Thanks for the help and feedback!

 

Alan

GnuCash might not be on the DVD but it is in the online repositories.

If you haven't set them up go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ and follow the prompts to set them up.

 

You'll need at least

Main Updates

Contrib

Non-Free

Backports, Testing and PLF are optional.
