Fedora offers software for both GNOME and KDE to manage your finances. The software is not enabled by default in the live-cd versions of Fedora, but can be downloaded. If you install the DVD version of Fedora, you will be able to install the financial software.

Gnucash

Gnucash is not installed by default from the live-cd or the DVD. However, you can choose to install Gnucash from the DVD. If you installed Fedora using the live-cd, install Gnucash by typing the following into the console:

su -c 'yum install gnucash'

To install using Pirut, click Applications > Add/Remove Software. When Pirut opens, select Applications > Office/Productivity, and then click the [Optional Packages] button. When the Packages window opens, scroll down and tick the box next to gnucash, and then click the [Close] button. Finally, once you're finished selecting the packages you want to install, click the [Apply] button in Pirut.

After you install Gnucash, you can launch it by clicking Applications > Office > Gnucash Finance Management.

Kmymoney

As with Gnucash, Kmymoney is not installed by default. To install it, click KMenu > Applications > System > Add/Remove Software. When Pirut opens, select Desktop Environments > KDE (K Desktop Environment), and then click the [Optional Packages] button. When the packages window opens, scroll down and tick the box next to kmymoney2; then click the [Close] button. Once you're finished selecting the packages you want to install, click the [Apply] button in Pirut.

Alternatively, type the following into the console to install Kmymoney:

su -c 'yum install kmymoney2'

After you install Kmymoney, you can launch it by clicking KMenu > Applications > Office > KMyMoney.
