Switching from Windows to Mint

Robin Chattopadhyay
Hi all-

I've been using GnuCash for years on various versions of Windows, but I got
a new computer and decided to make the leap to Linux. I'm using Mint 18.3
and I'm having trouble building from source. I've been following the steps
in the wiki.

(I tried the distribution, but it doesn't have the sqlite/libdbi options
installed. And the version is 2.6.12)

So, I've been trying to build my own with 2.6.19 and I'm running into a
problem with cmake. It's complaining that I'm not passing a check for
finding 'webkit-1.0>=1.2'

Any pointers for a new *nix user on how to get past this?

Thanks,
Robin

Hello again!

I appear to have solved my own issues. I had a number of dependencies
missing in addition to what's listed in the wiki:
* libdbd-sqlite3
* libofx-dev
* libgoffice-0.8
* libgtk2.0-dev

As someone who has been using Linux as my principal operating system on
home and business PCs since 2004, I can say with certainty that Linux
helps those who help themselves.  It'll be worth the effort, though.

I don't use Mint, but the spousal unit does and on the rare occasions
I've had to intervene with her machine one of the really nice things
I've noticed about it is the Mint user community. There is competent
help available if you really need it. Check out the user forum if you
haven't already had the chance.

Glad you got GnuCash going.

I'm using 2.6.12 on an Lunbuntu (Unbuntu for all practical purposes) and
recently installed sqlite to use it with that feature. I did have to
install an additional package for it to "see" the sqlite3 backend,
though: libdbi-dbd-sqlite. After that, worked very well.
