where to find Gnucash for VL 7 Gold?
« on: December 12, 2011, 05:33:24 am »
Dear VL users,

first of all, I was really impressed by VL 7 Gold which I installed on Virtualbox. If everything works out well, VL 7 Gold will become my main linux desktop. One of the problems which keeps me from using it though, is that I could not find a gnucash package for VL 7 Gold. I just started the gslapt menu I think, refreshed and searched for it, but no luck. Can someone tell me how I can get this installed?

Please report how Gnucash works for you.
I have not moved it from testing as I have not had any reporting on it.

I followed the advice but when I start gnucash I get a message saying something about " Cannot find default values". Clicking setup brings me to dialog about Update gnucash configuration data. Clicking forward gives me two options (A Update search path B Install into home directory) and I choose the first one I get three options (A Gnucash updates search path B You update search path yourself and C The search path has already been updated in another window). I chose C because I already had done it, but nothing happens.

cat .gconf.path

######## The following lines were added by GnuCash. ########
xml:readwrite:$(HOME)/.gconf
xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults
############## End of lines added by GnuCash. ##############


Starting gnucash from command line gives:

gnucash
gnc.bin-Message: main: binreloc relocation support was disabled at configure time.

Backtrace:
In unknown file:
   ?: 0* [primitive-load-path "slib/guile.init"]

<unnamed port>: In procedure primitive-load-path in expression (primitive-load-path name):
