Help installing gnucash please...


Hi,

I use Quicken 2000 under WinXP, and this is pretty much the only application I need to keep XP on my laptop for!

I have installed Kmymoney, but its import of Quicken files is lousy, so I want to try gnucash.

I have downloaded and unpacked in /usr/src gnucash-1.6.8. The first './configure' command failed because it wanted some files in the gnome-libs-1.4.1.7 package:
checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install
When I try to './configure' the gnome-libs package, this fails with:
checking for orbit-config... no
checking for orbit-idl... no
checking for working ORBit environment... no
configure: error: ORBit not installed or installation problem
Any ideas as to where I go now would be much appreciated...

why are you trying to use a 4 year old version of a package that is still releasign new versions on a regular basis? gnucash.org shows the latest version came out a mere 4 days ago. this is officially unstable, but even their current stable is a good 2.5 years newer. this old version only requires gnome1 whilst i'd assume the latest will use gnome2 which you're more likley to have installed already.

I should have read the small print - seems I need gnome installed, and I can't be having that! Wish I'd read that before having to get guile, g-wrap, slibs etc...

Have now got KMymoney working a treat, so will stick with that.

Thanks for the help.
