Fedora3 and Moneydance


hello.
I am new to linux. I installed fedora 3 this week-end. I have everything setup. Although it took .. hours and hours of reading....
The last thing.. I need is moneydance.

I did not understand before installing linux... that just becuase there is a 'linux' version on a website... does not mean that it will work on your 'flavor' of linux.

There are instructions on the webiste and I have followed them to the letter and when I try to tun the program I get 'bash: moneydance: command not found'

There are no yum or rpm for it.

These are the instructions on how to install moneydance.
I need/want this program to work with Fedora 3.
*I am just wasting my time here? .... or am I missing a step?
or ... are these instructions... no good? ....
*the program runs in Java. I followed the instruction on fedorafaq.org and installed java first.*

*www.moneydance.com
*

*If this will not work... what program to people use for personal finances? I truly enjoyed using this program.
T

*

Once you have downloaded the appropriate package, untar the file into a directory on your system like so:

%> gunzip moneydance_*.tar.gz
%> tar xf moneydance_*.tar -C /usr/local

This will create the /usr/local/moneydance directory. We use /usr/local as an example, Moneydance can be installed in any location.

** /Please skip this step if you are not installing the "Other" package. / If you downloaded the "Other" package above, you will need to create a symbolic link named "jre" in the /usr/local/moneydance directory that points to the location of Java on your system. For example, if your java executable is at /usr/j2se/bin/java then you should create the link like so:

%> cd /usr/local/moneydance
%> ln -s /usr/j2se jre



** You can now run Moneydance by executing the 'moneydance' script in the new directory.

%> /usr/local/moneydance/moneydance

To make starting Moneydance from the command line easier, you can create a symbolic link in your path that points to the moneydance startup script:

%> cd /usr/local/bin
%> ln -s /usr/local/moneydance/moneydance moneydance

For your convenience we have provided a moneydance.xpm file that can be used with a desktop icon for launching Moneydance from a GUI such as KDE or GNOME.

Did you perform this step?

If so, check that /usr/local/bin is in your PATH variable (echo $PATH). If not, you can add the path in your ~/.profile or ~/.bash_login file.
Code:
PATH=PATH:/usr/local/bin
Another option is to create the link in /usr/bin instead.
Code:
su
<root password>
cd /usr/bin
ln -s /usr/local/moneydance/moneydance moneydance

Good Luck!

Thank you for your response.


did you perform this step? - <yes I did>

If so, check that /usr/local/bin is in your PATH variable (echo $PATH). If not, you can add the path in your ~/.profile or ~/.bash_login file.

<I did this and it appears that it is in my path>

[tgrier@localhost ~]$ echo $PATH
/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/lib/jre/bin:/home/tgrier/bin:/usr/lib/jre/bin


When I make the changes.. are you suggest and try to execute .. I get this.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/local/moneydance/j2re1.4.2_03/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

First install these JAVA RPMs(just click to download):
http://dag.wieers.com/packages/j2re/...c3.rf.i586.rpm
http://dag.wieers.com/packages/j2re/...c3.rf.i586.rpm
This will make sure JAVA is running.
Next, you just have to follow it's instructions without the 'other' package.

Now it should work

Others are:

http://home.gna.org/cbb/

In your last message tells you what is wrong with the program. Your program requires the 2 librarys and when its attempting to access them it cannot find them or they are not there


Quote:
libawt.so: libXp.so.6


Try seaching for the package that these librarlys are included with

If you simply install those rpms you won't have to configure anything.
It will just work...
I just tried this 'moneydance' myself and it works perfect without any compiling.
