Financial Software

Fedora offers software for both GNOME and KDE environments to manage your finances. GnuCash is the financial software recommended for users with the GNOME desktop environment, and Kmymoney is recommended financial software for the KDE environment. Only the DVD version of Fedora includes both financial software packages. Both financial software packages are available for easy download and installation with either the Add/Remove Software utility or with commands through the console.

GnuCash

GnuCash is not installed by default from the Live-CD or the DVD. If you do not have access to the Internet, you can use the Fedora DVD to install GnuCash. The Add/Remove Software utility called Pirut will offer a more familiar interface for most users. Here is how to install GnuCash using Add/Remove Software.

Click Applications > Add/Remove Software.

When Pirut opens, select Applications > Office/Productivity, and then click the [Optional Packages] button.

After the Packages window opens, scroll down and tick the box next to gnucash.

Now click the [Close] button.

If you have any other packages you also wish to install, you may select them at this time. Once you are finished selecting other packages to add or remove from your system, click the [Apply] button in Pirut. This will start the process of installing GnuCash and concurrently install or remove any additional packages where you modified the tick box.


GnuCash is now installed on your computer.


Another way to install GnuCash application is to use the console. Open the console and type:

su -c 'yum install gnucash'


After you install Gnucash using one of the methods described above, you can launch it by clicking Applications > Office > Gnucash Finance Management.

Kmymoney

Kmymoney is also not installed by default with either the Fedora Live-CD or DVD, but is easily installed using either of the same methods described for GnuCash. If you do not have an Internet connection, you can install Kmymoney with the Fedora DVD.

To install Kmymoney using the Add/Remove Software utility Pirut, start by clicking the KMenu.

Next, select Applications > System > Add/Remove Software.

When Pirut opens, select Desktop Environments > KDE (K Desktop Environment),and then click the [Optional Packages] button.

After the Packages window opens, scroll down and tick the box next to kmymoney2; then click the [Close] button.

If you have any other packages you also wish to install, you may select them at this time. Once you are finished selecting other packages to add or remove from your system, click the [Apply] button in Pirut. This will start the process of installing Kmymoney and concurrently install or remove any additional packages where you modified the tick box.


Kmymoney is now installed on your computer.


Another way to install the Kmymoney application is to use the console. Open the console and type:

su -c 'yum install kmymoney2'


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