M$ Money "like" software


I am looking for a program that is sort of like Microsoft money... Just something where I can keep track of transactions and the like. Any suggestions? Thanks!

-M

[EDIT] **NOTE** I only use my debit card and Paypal for transactions.

Gnucash and kmymoney seem to be the most popular. You can search for more apps at kde-apps.org and gnomefiles.org.

I'd personally recommend KMyMoney for personal finances. GNUCash is really awesome, but it's a pretty complicated app and it's kind of overwhelming for personal uses. KMyMoney doens't require a 'real' database either. I used it for a long time, it's nice.

Thanks for the help guys. I tried that KMyMoney but after I download the .deb file (I'm running Ubuntu) and try to install I get a dependency error. "Kdelibs4"

Any suggestions? While I wait I'll try some other ones I find. Thanks again!

[EDIT] I tried GNUCash, but I got a dependency error there too. Am I missing a repository or something? I'm a half noob to linux.

what distro are you using? that will dictate the best way to obtain kdelibs4 (which you obviously need, cause it says so )

it may not be called kdelibs4 it may be kdelibs or some such

HA! Found a better way to do it. I knew I should have looked within "Add/ Remove" before trying to do it all manually... Thanks for the help anyways guys! I really appreciate it.
