@amish see here.

Why have you added >=0 to all depends? Any reason? Not adding >=0 also works as it is one and the same.

Added, thanks for digging @rf2020.

OK, I found the problem. Gnucash needs perl-json-parse, which is separate from perl-json, to use the quote feature, even from its command-line version. Technically, this means it's a dependency for gnucash, but could you could add it to this package? Thanks!

Yes, I'm still using the Gnucash setup that worked with 1.57; it includes that key. I even tried clearing .cache, .config and .local files and resetting this key, but no improvement.

@rf2020 apologies for not replying sooner - glad you were able to confirm that perl-finance-quote is working from the command line. As for the GnuCash configuration, do you have an Alpha Vantage API key configured?

Update: I was able to adapt some example code from the developer's page, and perl-finance-quote succeeds in retrieving prices, for example, from the command line. I tried reinstalling gnucash as well, but "Get Quotes" is still disabled due to config. I will try asking their devs what is up.

I uninstalled the old (1.57) perl-finance-quote and all its dependences, rebooted, and then clean-built this version, but gnucash still says it is not configured properly and has disabled "Get Quotes". Is there a way to get more specifics as to what is misconfigured? Quotes worked with 1.57.
