Gnucash Package

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would like to install Gnucash.
Hardware is Pinebook Pro running Manjaro with updates, and Plasma Desktop.

moved to #arm as arm repositories (and therefore packages) are different.

Searching Manjaro - Branch Compare for arm architecture gnucash doesn’t give any hits - looks like it is not available.

Yeah it’s only X86-64 at the moment.

Thanks all. I will put this on hold.

I am currently test building gnucash, to see if there is an obvious reason for Arch Linux ARM not to package it.

All the dependencies are present.

It seems to build fine on my end. So not sure why Arch Linux ARM is not building it as the x64 PKGBUILD builds fine if you just change the arch=() line to include aarch64.

For what it’s worth, I used to build gnucash from scratch on Raspberry Pi 4B with manjaro (but Pi was just too slow for me). Up to gc version 4.4, this worked:

 sudo pacman -S make gcc pkg-config git base-devel ipset wxgtk2
 sudo pacman -S cmake gtest gmock boost gwenhywfar aqbanking libdbi libdbi-drivers guile-bytestructures swig perl-dbd-sqlite perl-dbd-mysql perl-dbd-pg perl-finance-quote cpanminus webkit2gtk
   mkdir ~/gnucash-build
   cd ~/gnucash-build
   cmake -S ~/gnucash-4.4/ -B ~/gnucash-build/
   sudo make install
   sudo cpanm Date::Manip
   sudo cpanm Mozilla::CA
   echo '(yahoo_json "CSCO" "^IXIC")' | gnc-fq-helper

The last part made downloading quotes work. I was not able to use aqbanking with any of my accounts, but that might not be gnucash’s fault.

P.S. I just remembered to add a line where some components had already been installed previously to compile another program. Now I’m really sure AUR would make the process more reliable. :wink:

Can I cut and past this?

Feel free to try it at your own risk, but best to get the most recent gnucash instead.

Best of luck!

Before the keyboard died on me on my PBP, I ran Gnucash weekly for my home budgeting… I grabbed a aur package and put aarch into it. Worked fine. A little sluggish at times, but completely functional.

Sorry, I cant tell you which AUR as i’m waiting for a replacement keyboard at the moment.
