Subject description: Gnucash crashes in Precise Puppy 5.4.3
 

Never had a problem using Gnucash in prior Puppy releases, but it can't seem to get past the initial startup on my Precise Puppy 5.4.3 frugal install. All dependencies have been satisfied via the PPM. However, at startup, Gnucash says it cannot locate default values. It then offers several choices to resolve this issue (an issue explained in chapter 3 of the Gnucash help manual.) However, no matter which choices one selects, Gnucash crashes. With no success using my frugal install pupsave file, I tried starting over from a Live CD, each time selecting a different option from the choices presented, but always end up with the same negative result. Just for kicks, I ran a Lucid Live CD and installed Gnucash. It ran smoothly right out of the box. So, is there something amiss with GNC + Precise Puppy?

hi kulaib,

you can get it to run by typing this in a terminal
Code:
ln -s /usr/share/slib/ /usr/share/guile/1.8/slib


although it still shows that startup error everytime!!

Thanks very much, 666philb!! You've been a great help.

The latest Precise Puppy suits my needs to a T. But the issue with Gnucash was a bummer. Now, thanks to you, problem solved. Much obliged. Very Happy Very Happy
