GnuCash does not open


I'm using Xubuntu (Studio) and have installed and reinstalled GnuCash without any success. It starts to open, displaying the hints screen and the start screen and then both of those disappear. When I tried do open it in the terminal I got error codes, the last few lines were

ERROR: In procedure scm-error:
ERROR: no code for module (www main)

Any ideas?

Hi & Welcome to Linux Questions.

I've never seen those errors before so I have no idea what's causing them.

Here's an article about the scm error.
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowle...scm_rcvry.html

IF GNU Cash is crashing it could be a bug.

In this post the member deleted the ~/.cache/guile/ccache/ folder and it helped.

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

I haven't seen this error before, either. How did you install Gnucash, through the repositories using Synaptic or another package manager?

If you know how and if Ztcoracat's suggestions don't work, I wonder if installing from a tarball here would help?

Regards...

I would install Gnu Cash from this Ubuntu repo and try that.
It looks like there is more than one package so you might be missing libraries and that could be contributing to the program not launching correctly.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?su...searchon=names

As an example gnucash-common has 3 dependencies (dconf-gsettings-backend, gsettings-backend, libjs-jqery) that gnucash is dependent upon and to be installed along with the main pkg.
http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/gnucash-common


If your not sure what version of Xubuntu (in order to pick the right pkg's) just run this cmd in the terminal to find out what release your running.

Code:
cat /etc/os-release

Please disregard, I did not see that the OP already did what I was going to suggest.

Thank you, one and all. I managed to find a solution that worked: rm -R ~/.cache/guile/ccache/

As I am not very sophisticated I'll post a link to the article so you can better know what happened: https://bugs.launchpad.net/getdeb.net/+bug/1389018

The immediate responses were appreciated. Geeks rule.

No, God rules, we just get the blessing of the skills that we have and using them to bless one another. I'm glad you were able to fix the problem and you're welcome.

@Ztcoracat: Nice call!
