[GNC] Gnucash Version: 3.3 Build ID: 3.3+ (2018-09-29)

GnuCash - User mailing list
Hi,

I have recently upgraded my Gnucash to Version: 3.3 Build ID: 3.3+ (2018-09-29) on my Mac running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6. When I open my file and while updating my file, I often receive a message:




Once this happens, I will choose the “open anyway” option, and once opened, I close it and reopen. This is a work around, however, I am continually saving my work, as it will crash while updating.

Your advice here please.

Many thanks,
Dolores

Sorry to hear you're having crash problems. (I just had one myself on 3.4 reported in another thread)

The image didn’t come through, but from your text I can tell you’re getting the file-lock warning. You are getting this warning because GnuCash sets a file-lock so you can’t unintentionally edit the file simulatenously with someone else. (not supported at this time)

When GnuCash exits normally, it deletes the lock-file. But because it crashed, the lock-file is still there.

So since you know this was a crash, you can simply choose to Open Anyway.

However, if you are repeatedly getting crashes, you should report them here so someone can help. (I don’t think clicking the button on the crash report window to “Send to Apple” does any good because it isn’t an Apple application)

If you can manage to *make* it crash intentionally following the same steps with regularity, that is even better. (easier to figure out the actual cause so it can get fixed faster)

Regards,
Adrien

It doesn't, but pasting the top part into a bug report or an email to here (as you did on your crash email  earlier) is immensely helpful to me, much more so than screen shots of error messages.

Those crash reports are available in /Applications/Utilities/Console by selecting "User Reports" in the sidebar.

What I need from it is the header starting at "Date/Time" through the end of the stack trace labelled "Thread [x] Crashed"; x is almost always 0.

John Ralls

For posterity...

Then you don’t need the section concerning Binary Images or System Profile?

Do you need the entire thread list, or just the beginning of the stack? I see there is also a section immediately after the full thread list showing “Thread x Crashed with Thread State:”. Need that too?

If this isn’t already on the wiki, I’d like to document it there.

As a side note, it would be very nice of Apple if these crash reports could instead or also be sent to the app developer. Not sure how that would be accommodated for however or if they’d allow developers to specify this in the packaging itself. But I can see it certainly possible for anything in the AppStore. (I’m well aware GnuCash isn’t listed there though.)

Adrien

Sorry, one more question for the wiki documentation:

Is it preferred to post crash reports to -user, -dev, or attach to a bug?

As long as it's GnuCash.app from our download sites I already know what are the binary images. The only system information that's useful is the MacOS version, and that's up top.

Crashes are bugs and it's a lot easier to track them--including reporting on them in release notes--if they're in bugzilla. Once can either paste the useful part of the crash report into the bug description (that actually helps bugzilla detect duplicates, it knows how to compare stack traces), but that requires some knowledge on the user's part to understand what's the useful part. I usually tell users to go to Console, find the crash report, control-click on it and select "show in Finder". That makes it easy for them to navigate to it from bugzilla's "choose file" button.

John Ralls

Re: [GNC] Printing problems

Adrien Monteleone-2
Lester,

Welcome to GnuCash!

Many before you have made the migration from Quicken to GnuCash quite successfully. (I myself used Quicken many, many, years ago)

However, please do not contact me (or anyone else on this list) personally unless specifically invited. See our mailing list etiquette on the wiki: https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Mailing_Lists#Netiquette

This is a public mailing list of users and volunteers where anyone may be able to help.

First and foremost, keeping the discussion public means others can offer assistance, and others can benefit from the discussion. (now or in the future)

I’m just a user like you. I can’t promise any special help, though I’m glad to do so where I can.

Specifically to your current issue, I don’t print checks. I’ve never used that facility of GnuCash, and I don’t currently have a working printer so I can’t even test any possible solutions for you.

I couldn’t be of further assistance with any specificity, but I can offer a few suggestions:

Exactly, what do you mean by “it kicks me out”? Does GnuCash crash? Does it just go away, or is there an error message or crash report on screen?

Have you tested printing reports? Do you get the same result?

Do you have a ‘virtual printer’ such as PDF or XPS installed? (most Windows systems have a virtual XPS printer installed by default, and you can easily add a free PDF printer)

Using a virtual printer, do you still get a crash? Can you use the ‘print to file’ option?

The reason I ask these questions is to narrow down the trigger to the problem.

If some things can print in GnuCash, but not others, or if successful using a virtual printer rather than an actual physical printer, then this can help narrow down where the problem is occurring.

While I wouldn’t be able to help you beyond that, someone else reading this thread might have enough info to point you in the right direction.

Regards,
Adrien

Lester,

No forgiveness. Use the mailing list. After all, I'm probably the last person you want to ask about using Windows, I'm a Mac person.

Re: [GNC] Printer Problems

David Carlson-4
Lester,

Regarding your underlying question, GnuCash has been playing catch-up with
printer support in Windows for years.  Releases in the 2.6 series sometimes
had issues in Windows 7.

I am still using Windows 7 on one of my computers but I prefer to run
GnuCash on one of my Linux machines.

I would suggest either setting up a virtual computer with a recent Linux
version such as Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04, or acquiring an older machine from a
computer recycler and putting Linux on it for GnuCash as well as other
basic compuer needs.

I don't know if this will help anyone, but if anyone is running Windows
10 x64, there is a new feature addition to Windows 10 called "Windows
Subsystem for Linux" ("WSL") that you can enable, & then install (free)
Linux distributions from the Microsoft Store:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10

The install is absolutely trivial.  Ubuntu 16.04 & 18.04 distributions
are available, but I've installed Debian, & run some fairly complex bash
scripts without a problem.

That having been said, WSL is supported & primarily intended for running
command-line programs, although some have been able to run a Linux GUI
on it:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/993225/whats-the-easiest-way-to-run-gui-apps-on-wsl-as-of-2018

All that having been said, I have no idea if WSL supports printing. I
doubt it, but I thought I'd throw this out as a possible alternative to
running a VM.  WSL is much more "lightweight" than a VM, but takes a LOT
less resources.

Re: [GNC] Printer Problems

Adrien Monteleone-2
My understanding is that the new preferred method if you want a GUI linux distribution running on Windows 10 is to install Ubuntu (or whatever else is available) from the Windows store. This will install a VM using the built-in Hyper-V.

Otherwise, you could use Virtualbox or Vmware as noted. Using WSL to install GUI apps is definitely an ‘at your own risk’ proposition at present.

Regards,
Adrien
