Cannot comment on LibreOffice Calc, but once upon a time there was a series of articles about accounting software at LWN.net: problem statement, Ledger, PostBooks. And the new installment of it.

I used Gnucash for my small business. Seemed to work great for my needs. I'd imagine it can be scaled up quite a bit but I will readily admit it is nowhere near as capable as some closed source stuff, Quickbooks comes to mind (windows / osx only).

i downloaded that program recomended, but there is no installer icon and I do not have time and can not be bothered messing with the terminal commands any more; so think I will deleite it and shut down and boot up windows again

I'd think you mean templates from official and 3rd party. https://extensions.libreoffice.org/templates

Otherwise might look at turnkey linux for prebuilt distro's you can run on physical or virtual.

Doesn't Linux Mint come with a graphical Software Manager? Because that's how you install Software in GNU/Linux, not from the wild web.

Or there's Kmymoney or a "newcomer" that basically just a check-book "wxBanker Finance Manager" - had a look at it and it looks quite good.)
Personally I hate that it's so hard to customize Gnucash and have given up on it.

I know from the Sunday Morning Linux Review that one of their podcasters using KMyMoney. He's got some videos about it on his Youtube channel.

Homebank is nice. I haven't mastered it yet but nonetheless very good.

I don't think Homebank and KMyMoney are quite the thing for a business, which is what the OP wanted — their names give them away. But if the OP can't work out how to install software, they probably will have trouble learning Gnucash!

Sadly Microsoft has done the majority of the computing world a huge disservice by forcing them to go out on the Internet to download applications. Apple has done the same thing. Windows users come here expecting to do the same thing and don't understand that Linux uses secure repositories full of software. Looks like OP gave up. Too bad.
