Alternatively, you can get the source from the KDE SVN. (see link below)



KMyMoney depends on KDE SC 4.3+. 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 SVN at

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

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/
$ make
$ 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.


If you are installing from SVN 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.
