Gnucash, can't install from the slackbuilds


Hi there,

I'm using slackware 12.2. I'm unable to install gnucash from the slackbuilds. After installing a lot of dependencies, i'm stuck at one, libgoffice. There is no slackbuild for libgoffice. Can some one please help me out.

Thanx.

My GOD! I can't believe they actually got gnucash to build on slackware with minimal dependencies. I tried several times to create all the necessary slackbuild scripts to get the darn thing to install. I gave up and it's not worth it to install gnome just to get gnucash. Also, I remember having to deal with rebuilding libgsf so that it included gsf-gnome libraries... perhaps all their configure scripts got around this some how.

@ lumak
In fact you can do it without building the packages,
about 99 % ? of the Gnome stuff is available at 'slacky.eu'
'gnucash', 'goffice' too :

I thought part of the interest in slackware was knowing what goes into your system and compiling vanilla packages. Also the build at slacky.eu has more dependencies than it really needs. Ultimately though, I wish there was something to get rid of the gconf dependency. It's a needless addition.

Try sbopkg.
It makes short work out of the 20 or so deps that gnucash needs.
Just set up the que list in the correct order and it will download, make and install everything for you.

For a long time, I was interested in a "lean & mean" linux installation. I would not install/remove quite a number of packages when installing slackware. However, I was interested in running Gnucash. I really like that program. When disk storage became so cheap, I finally gave up, installed everything; even went so far as to install Gnome Slacky just to get Gnucash & Gramps (another gnomified program I am partial to). I was very pleased to find Gnucash at SBo. There are, however, too many dependencies for me to keep track of. Fortunately, there is also sbopkg, which I can run occasionally & let it worry about upgrades to SBo packages I have installed (Thanks, Chess). Guess I'm just getting lazy in my old age.
Edit: Slackass beat me to it. (I wish I had thought of that handle before he signed up. I can look out my front door at any time & see at least six donkeys; we raised three foals in the front yard last summer. Oh, well...)
Regards,
Bill
