Installation

Requirements

KMyMoney depends on KDE SC 4.4+. Specifically on kdelibs and kde PIM libs. Additionally, you may want to install other libraries that will provide additional functionality:

  • libofx >= 0.9.2
  • Aqbanking >= 5.0.0
  • quote::finance

Installation steps

If possible, it is always preferred to use a package specifically prepared for your distribution. However, if one is not available, or you want a more recent version, you can use the latest tarball. If you really need the most recent version, such as to test a new bug fix, get the source from KDE Git at

To install, read the README.cmake file in the root folder of the source. The basic steps are the following:

First, make sure you have uninstalled any old versions of kmymoney through your package manager and/or sudo make uninstall depending on how it was installed last time. Then:

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/
$ make # This step may be needed twice
$ make install

It is important that the prefix is the same one that is used by your already installed KDE software. If it does not match, you will run into problems later. (The last step should be executed with admin privileges. Either switch to root or use sudo, or the appropriate steps for your installation)

To execute, either look for KMyMoney on the Office menu, or type kmymoney in a console window.

Localization

If you are installing from Git source, you need to install your locale files by hand. If you are installing from the tarball provided above, please skip this section.

To localize you will need to download the appropriate kmymoney.po file from http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/l10n-kde4/<country_code>/messages/extragear-office/ (replace <country_code> with the correct one for your locale e.g. es would give http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/l10n-kde4/es/messages/extragear-office/) and then, either by switching to root or using sudo, do the following:

  • Copy the kmymoney.po file into /usr/share/locale/<country_code>/
  • In that folder run:
  $ msgfmt kmymoney.po -o LC_MESSAGES/kmymoney.mo
  Note: use the msgfmt that comes with your distribution not the one needed for kmymoney2.

Debian dependencies

build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev kdepimlibs5-dev libaqbanking29-dev libboost-graph-dev libfinance-quote-perl libgpgme11-dev libgwenhywfar47-dev libical-dev libjpeg62-dev libofx-dev libpng12-dev libsqlite3-dev libz-dev gettext

Guidelines

This version is only suitable for early adopters. It will behave fairly well, but the application might crash and you may lose some data. Make backups often.

For 3.95 version and later, we use the Bugzilla tracker at bugs.kde.org (BKO). Any bugs you find, please report it and assign to product kmymoney4. Also, if you need help write to kmymoney-devel@kde.org.

Link to Debian bugs

The bugs in Debian tracker can be linked back to BKO

Obtain a useful backtrace on Windows

If you would like to create a bug report about an application crash on Windows you need to take care of the following to create a useful report:

  • make sure that you can reproduce the crash
  • download the debug information that matches your version (4.6.3)
  • extract the archive in a folder of your choice (in this example c:\temp\kmm-debug-info) using 7z archiver
  • open cmd.exe
  • run set _NT_SYMBOL_PATH=c:\temp\kmm-debug-info
  • run "c:\Program Files\KMyMoney\bin\kdeinit4.exe" --terminate
  • run "c:\Program Files\KMyMoney\bin\kmymoney.exe"
  • try to reproduce the crash and use DrKonqi the KDE crash handler that appears when the application crashes (only on Windows 7) to report the crash on bugs.kde.org

Notes:

  • DrKonqi will inform you if the crash report is useful or not (it contains the debug information or not)
  • if DrKonqi says that the report is not useful something went wrong in the above steps
  • if you can't reproduce the crash immediately you can run KMyMoney for a while in an environment in which _NT_SYMBOL_PATH is defined as above (you can use a batch file for that)
  • when you no longer need the debug information you can safely delete the folder c:\temp\kmm-debug-info
