NOTICE: this package should be considered deprecated in favor of gnucash-git, which has recently been recently updated and works again: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnucash-git/. Please migrate to that package instead. I am no longer interested in maintaining or fixing this one and it will probably stop working eventually.

I installed the gnucash-git version today (details below) and it worked with my books, even creating the scheduled transactions.

Dear Jebrosen,

Thanks for your support. I downgraded to an older already built package. However, I found that by not using the up-to-date boost libraries, libreoffice was now broken. As you suggested, I will now switch to gnucash-git, and if I find any troubles, I will post it over there.

@amdj, Blackbot: yes, rebuilding AUR packages is sometimes necessary after updates from the repositories.

@amdj: Dutch not working is troubling, but is more likely a gnucash bug than a bug with the AUR package. You said you downgraded - do you mean you used a previously already-built package, or that you used a previous version of this package and rebuilt it? Do you have any other installed locales you could try with, for example by running something like "LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 gnucash"?

Indeed a rebuild fixed the dependency problem for me too. However, in Gnucash gnucash-gtk3-git 2.7.3.r1.g310442ffe-1 strangely I cannot get the language to Dutch anymore (I need it, as I am not familiar with English financial terms). Downgraded to version gnucash-gtk3-git-2.7.2.r37.gac89797e7-2 and I have my Dutch back. Strangely the newly built version say in the INFO

  • 15:07:43 INFO <gnc.gui> [main] System locale returned nl_NL.UTF-8</gnc.gui>
  • 15:07:43 INFO <gnc.gui> [main] Effective locale set to nl_NL.UTF-8.</gnc.gui>

that the Dutch language is activated. However the GUI was English. Anyone else having issues with the language with this newer version? As for now, I am stuck with Boost 1.65 and the older version of Gnucash.

Can confirm error:

gnucash: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_regex.so.1.65.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

A rebuild fixed it for me, so that might be a workaround if you want to upgrade boost and boost-libs.

With boost and boost-libs > 1.65 I get:

gnucash: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_regex.so.1.65.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

So, do not upgrade boost and boost-libs, if you still want to use Gnucash without a lot of hurdle. Is there anything we can do about this on the long term?

Best regards, Anne de Jong

@plenaerts: Without knowing what caused the segfault it's impossible to say what we "need". For example, if you updated any packages on your system between December 8 and December 26 you could have broken gnucash; it is the user's responsibility to rebuild AUR packages to keep them up to date with the rest of the system as needed. That being said, gnucash does have a 2.7 development release branch that moves more slowly and might be considered more "stable", but with the same caveat I just mentioned regarding updates.

new build did indeed fix the segfault on my system. This confirms to me that we need a webkit2gtk dependent gnucash version, but more stable than the -git pkg.

@jebrosen Just FYI I fixed my issue by defining changing my SHELL variable to /bin/bash when launching the command (it wasn't working with fish).
