[GNC] Problem with online banking setup in Ubuntu

WaltD
     I am new to GnuCash. My OS is Ubuntu Unity 16.04 LTS.  I just created a
new file with new accounts. I am trying to setup online banking to my
checking account. In the online setup wizard I reach a point where I'm to
"Start AqBanking Wizard". When I click on the AqBanking button nothing
happens and the GnuCash program closes.
     When I restart GnuCash, I get this strange message: GnuCash could not
obtain the lock for
file:///home/walter/GnuCash/Book01.gnucash. (Book01 is the new file I
created). How can I complete the online setup?

You did not say whether you are using the release of GnuCash that is found
in the software offered by Ubuntu or a newer release from Get Deb or yet
another package.  Please name the release that you are using and whether
you also installed all the supplemental packages required for Aqbanking.
See the FAQ on the website for more information.

You will almost always see that error messeage when reopening a file after
a crash.  Usually you choose open anyway unless you think that the file is
open on a different computer.

As for the cause of the crash, it is necessary to know which version that
you have before someone here can suggest what to try next.

Good luck.

Please be sure to include [hidden email] in all communications by
using reply All or whatever works best in your mail client.

I personally installed release 2.6.17 from GetDeb into Ubuntu 16.04 Gnome
on an older laptop and it has worked as well as I could expect with only 2
Gig of Ram.  However, I have a very large data file and I only use
AlphaVantage to update stock prices on a different machine so I am not sure
about AqBanking.  Perhaps others can share their experience with GnuCash on
Ubuntu.

While GnuCash 3.2 will be released very soon for Windows and OS X, it will
take a while to get to Ubuntu, unless you are willing to compile it
yourself.  Personally, I am not in a hurry.

Hi David,
      Sometimes you just have to keep playing around with an app until it
works. I got GnuCash to work. I installed it in the Terminal using sudo
apt-get install gnucash.  In this version the menu's don't show. But
someone in the Ubuntu forum said to drag the app to the top of the screen
and the menu's will show.  It worked. Also AqBanking wizard is now
working.
      Thanks David very much.  I truly appreciate your input.
      Regards....Walter
