Wrong mailing list. Please use gnucash-user unless you want to talk about developing, documenting, or translating GnuCash. I’ve cc’d my reply to that list for your convenience.

As to your question, our latest release is 2.6.8, sources of which are available from http://www.gnucash.org; click the Linux download link in the upper right corner.

If you’re not able to build from source and your distro doesn’t package GnuCash then you’ll have to either switch to a distribution that does or get the distro admins to find a packager to do it for you. We provide binaries only for Mac and Windows.

Regards,
John Ralls

Re: excellent software

Kathy,
I used to use Puppy, and it's awesome for lesser-powered computers, but
you've hit on a major weakness--software packages.  I recall later versions
(about the time I was moving to another distro) were adding capability to
use ubuntu/debian deb files,  slackware packages, etc.  I don't know the
current status.

There is a forum thread on GnuCash at
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42936 .  It originated
years ago, but the last post is from this year, and mentions GnuCash 2.6.1
(a bit outdated) in Tahrpup 6.0.2.  You'll need to compare your precise
pangolin version (Ubuntu based?) with this one to see if it's accessable.

I would check to see how much success you'll likely have adding an Ubuntu
Precise package and try that. The Puppy forums used to be really helpful.
Precise Pangolin is Ubuntu 12.04LTS, which is quite old.  There is a
GnuCash 2.6.3 package (also a bit old) for 12.04 at getdeb.net.

I would look at moving to a more recent version if your computer can handle
it.  12.04LTS is still supported <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS> for a year
or so, but people are less likely to keep software up to date.  Maybe try
14.04 LTS or a distro based on it?

Good luck.
