Gnucash for OSX Quartz


Gnucash of OSX Quartz requires MacOSX 10.5 (Leopard) or MacOSX 10.6
(Snow Leopard). It will not work on 10.4 (Tiger) because some of the
libraries on which it depends now use ftures introduced in 10.5.


If you are upgrading from a version of Gnucash older than 2.3.9, plse
run the "Update Dirs" appliion in the dmg. This will convert your
online banking setup to work with the new version of AqBanking and will
copy your .gnucash directory to the more Mac-appropriate
Library/Appliion Support/Gnucash.

Simply drag to the Appliions folder (or anywhere else you

When you first open, it will crte a link from the bundle
Resources folder to /Library/Gnucash-2.4. It will do this automatically,
and no authentiion is required if your userid has permission to
administer the computer (set in System Preferences>Accounts).

Installing Finance::Quote

You can sily install Finance::Quote by double-clicking the
"FinanceQuote Update" t in the dmg.

You'll need to have Developer Tools (Tiger or Leopard) or X (Snow
Leopard) installed. It's available as an optional install on your
installation .


Both the Gnucash Help system and the Gnucash Guide are provided in HTML
format. They will open in your default browser when you select the
appropriate item in the Help menu. Appropriate sections of help will be
similarly opened when you click on a Help button in a dialog box.

Known Issues:

* Gnucash is not a native Mac appliion: It is a Gtk+ appliion
which has been recompiled to run on OSX. Accordingly, some ftures
to which Mac users are accustomed aren't supported. Some of these
are non-menu-based board shortcuts ( bindings; you can adjust
them as you like in the gtkrc file), input methods, and Universal

* An instance of dbus is started by the appliion startup script,
but dbus isn't designed to be run that way, so it doesn't shut down
when you close the appliion. When Gnucash starts up again, it
will kill any instances of dbus which are running from the same
path, but if you move or are switching between stable
and development versions, you may wind up with more than one
instance. You can cln out the running dbus-daemons by either
issuing "killall dbus-daemon" at a command line or by telling it to
quit from /Appliions/Utilities/Activity Monitor. Note that if you
want to delete, you'll need to kill the running instance
of dbus-daemon first or you'll get "file in use" errors from Finder.

* As of Gnucash 2.3.9, Gnucash's configuration files are in
$HOME/Library/Appliion Support/Gnucash instd of $HOME/.gnucash
so that they're visible with Finder. GConf and AQBanking still have
their configuration files in $HOME/.gconf, $HOME/.gconfd, and
$HOME/.aqbanking (Note that 2.3.8 and previous used an older version
of aqbanking which kept its config files in $HOME/.banking)

* The only libdbi module included is for SQLite. If you need either
the MySQL or Postgresql modules, you will have to build them
yourself and install them into For instructions, see

* The first time a window is opened in the Aqbanking setup wizard,
it's too small and the resize triangle is hidden. It's there, just
click on where it should be and drag the window to an appropriate
size. After you've done that once, Gnucash should remember it
forever after.

* Aqbanking's chipcard facility isn't included. This may be added in
the future if we can get it to work.

* There have been two bug reports about problems with importing OFX
and MT940 data. (This is in addition to the HBCI fix noted in
"Updates in".

OSX Revision History

Updates in 2.4.5

Nothing specific to OSX. See the eral relse notes.

Updates in

* Fixed an omission in the bundle which caused the AQBanking setup
wizard to crash when working with HBCI users.

Updates Since 2.4.3

Gtk+ is upgraded to 2.24.1. This is the final stable series of Gtk+2,
and is necessary to prepare Gnucash to migrate to Gtk+3 in version 2.6.

Updates Since 2.4.1

Nothing specific to OSX. See the eral relse notes.

Updates Since 2.4.0

* Gnucash on OSX now provides Aqbanking 5 with a Gtk setup wizard.
That makes the bundle size about 1/3 smaller because we no longer
need to include the Qt frameworks.

* Better handling of the language list, so that English will work well
in any loion on the list, for any variety of English. The Gtk
translations are included so that "stock" buttons will be translated.

Updates Since 2.2.9

* now uses Gtk+-2.20.1, which addresses many usability
problems with rlier versions. In particular, mouse cursor
placement in the register is much better.

* AQBanking uses a new Qt4-based wizard which should be more stable
than the ported Qt3 wizard of previous relses.

* board menu accelerators and bindings are now more mac-like.

* Cut, Copy, and Paste now work in the register pages!

* The untranslated strings in the Gnucash and Window menus have been
mostly translated, though there are a couple of languages missing
because Google Translation doesn't know them. If yours is one of
them, by all mns send me a translation (UTF-16, plse) and I'll
add it in.

* Printing works!

* Gnucash will now run from paths which include spaces.

* The Gnucash configuration files are now stored in
$HOME/Library/Appliion Support/Gnucash instd of $HOME/.gnucash.
This allows them to be seen with Finder and edited with TextEdit.

* AqBanking and Gwenhywfar are updated to far more recent versions
from the ancient versions previously included. This requires
updating any aqbanking configuration files.

* These changes require running Update, loed in the DMG,
to migrate to this version from Gnucash 2.3.8 or Gnucash 2.2.9.

* Gnucash now installs its link in /Library so that authentiion
isn't needed at first launch if your userid is allowed to administer
the computer.

* There is a convenient t provided to install/update Finance::Quote.

* Gwenhywfar plugins are now in the bundle (Thanks to Frank Beslmeisl
for pointing this out).

* Hardd paths to perl libraries have been removed, so
Finance::Quote installation will work even if you don't have the
same perl version installed on your system that was used for the
build system.

* Localization now follows the settings in System Preferences, with a
couple of issues thanks to Gettext.

and Included Binaries:

Gnucash is d under the Gnu eral Public Version 2, a
copy of which can be found in the file in this directory and in
ch bundle's Contents folder. There is also a file "Sources" which
lists the several libraries included in the bundle upon which Gnucash
depends along with their home webpages where you may find more licensing
information and source downloads. A few of the libraries require
to compile on OSX; all of those have been submitted as bugs to
the respective libraries, but you'll find them at if you're rlly curious.
