Subject description: Is there activity?
 

Home Bank lacks import facility for importing OFX files.
Home Bank people told me libofx should be compiled with the Home Bank source.
Who did compile Home Bank for puppy?
Is there still activity going on?

@ Beem,

Hello my friend

Looks as though MU did the business,[though I'm sure he'll correct if I'm wrong!] but outlines DIY steps in this thread

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=31420&sid=b3e9eb63ce7fa2d2592798cfbfca8055

It's also listed as installed in fat-free by ttuuxxx

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22650

I didn't go through the other 65 entirely, just what looked best Smile

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/search.php?search_author=hankyknot&start=15&sid=f231007dc5e50148c7db41cc43072981

Good Luck

Aitch Smile

Aitch,
The problem isn't to have the Home Bank program and run it, as it is in Puppy already. Gnucash has been eliminated.

But Home Bank as it is in puppy doesn't permit to import ofx records produced by online banking programs.
I raised this several times here already and looked for support in the Home Bank forum.
What is needed is a libofx.so.*.*.* and that one should be compiled with the Home Bank from the distribution where it should run upon.
So in our case on puppy's version of Home Bank.
I found quite a while ago, the source of the libofx and tried to compile standalone, but I ran into dependency on dependency and finally stopped trying to compile.

So I have the feeling it is the person who compiled Home Bank for puppy (I think it's Barry) who can find the solution.

Hi Beem

Ok,

I found this I don't know if there may be some use to you

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=126726&sid=0b03592b57d56279b8dbbabf31d8f62f

Didn't gnucash do it?
there's mention of MT940 downloads from banks?

http://svn.gnucash.org/docs/guide/oview-features1.html

Alternately, why not install Quicken under wine, as there seems to be more support of ofx downloads for that

I think rarsa did something on gnucash ofx also

I realise BarryK's very busy, but you could try PMing him direct or emailing him

Just a thought

Aitch

Edit: just found

Aitch,
I am very aware of the first link referenced.
As you can see, Barry isn't in favor of Grisbi, nor Gnucash.
I tried Gnucash in Windows, but it's pretty complicated to do some home banking.
It's looks more like a professional way of an accounting system.

Also Barry goes for Home Bank, as it is in alpha already.

I might end up PMing Barry, but I hesitated as he is very busy bringing out the beta.

Beem
Just in case you haven't found all my previous comments I summarise below-
Gnucash - yes, it is the only package I've found that actually uses, and exposes the user to, proper double entry bookkeeping BUT then in V1 used floating-point arithmetic. Disastrous.
Quicken under Wine - I have never been able to make it work, its windowing seems to be too clever for Wine. Different versions of Quicken or Wine may yield different results.
Quickbooks under Wine (way 'over the top' for home use) does work with only very small problems.
Home Bank - too simplistic for me but may be satisfactory for many people.

The problem for me is that any new package may do something like Gnucash. Worked fine for 10 months then crashed and there was no recovery. Without an export facility to copy the data from a backup to another program the entire 10 months of data had to be re-entered.

Cheers
Geoff

GeoffS,

Thank you for your comments.
For backing up the ofx format is important.
I can get the transactions in ofx format from my bank.
So I already have a kinda backup as I keep these files (well will keep them)
They are imported in the banking program.
I work with it.
And timely export can be (should be) done to ofx again.
Banking programs might have their own backup procedure and I think gnucash has one.
I can't remember quite well, but when I tried Grisbi, I had an issue also.

But Barry has clearly chosen for Home Bank and as you say, might be sufficient for a large percentage of users.
As far as I can see, it probably will fit my bill.

Bernard
