Re: Gnucash Price updating

Final Update. I did hear back from Gnucash folks and it's simply not an easy fix. I give up. No way do I want to be friggin in the terminal experimenting with various packages with no guarantee they will work. I'll manually update prices and call it good. I hope someday gnucash will have everything ...

Re: Gnucash Price updating

Stevo, those packages I do not have installed. But I did write to Gnucash and hope somebody responds. Maybe there's hope to get it working yet. Thanks!

Re: Gnucash Price updating

Hi Jerry,
I am so inclined and will certainly post the problem. The thought never even occurred to me that there was a gnucash forum. DUH! Thanks for pointing that out. If I can get this working, I'll modify my MX18 post here with the solution. All the best! Ron

Re: Gnucash Price updating

Good Morning Stevo. Well that was easy! I did update to the latest Gnucash and I lost money. Plus the updater still did not work. I got the same error message. Scared me that I lost money for some reason. The net assets did not match the old version which doesn't make sense. So I uninstalled the new...

Re: Gnucash Price updating

Stevo, this Gnucash version is right from the MX package installer in MX 18 which is under MX Tools. Version: GnuCash 2.6.15 This copy was built from rev 1ef17e6+ on 2016-12-21 Thanks Stevo.

Re: Gnucash Price updating

Hello Jerry, Thank you for the response. Yes, I did that exact search and you are right, this is a common problem. There is lots of stuff on the net in regards to the error message. I installed or made sure I had the various files installed on the computer and as near as I can tell, MX18 comes with ...

Hello to all. I have Gnucash installed on my MX18 and all works fine except the Get quotes price updater. I get an error message "There was an unknown error while retrieving the price quotes."

Re: USB transfer speeds slow/ data needs to be written message

Good Morning Folks, Thank you very much for the feedback. BitJam...Right on. Your explanation of what is happening makes a great deal of sense. I was so baffled as to the initial speed and then slowing down. It was only filling up a buffer for the most part. And then when trying to unmount, I receiv...

I have a weird problem with USB thumb drives. This proiblem occurs regardless of which thumb drive I utilize. This is a relatively new MX 18 install within the last couple weeks and this is my first attempt to write to them since installation. I had no problem transferring data that was on the USB d...
