Quicken6 for Win98

Postby donec » Mon Jun 23, 2008 1:35 am

I have quicken working perfect on Mepis 6.0, Mepis 6.5 both based on Ubuntu repositories and Mepis 7.0 based on Debian via Wine using several different versions. Now the problem is it will not even start to install in Elyssa Mint. I have tried using both the cli and just right clicking onit and open with wine. Neither does anything. Can someone offer a fix for this?

And what is Quicken6? It seems it can be at least both a driver for canon bubblejet and some economics program :)
I think your problem may be because Elyssa has a newer kernel than the other Linux you mention

Why bother? Just use kMyMoney, you'll never miss Quicken...

KMyMoney works great for the basics that the majority of people need. It is fast, too. Now, if you want more in-depth financials, check out GnuCash. I have tried to warm up to HomeBank, but it was not to my liking. You may find that the open-source financial packages are excellent alternatives to proprietary formats such as Quicken or Money. So, there is no need to suffer with Wine and closed-source applications unless there is some mission-critical feature you simply must have. Good luck, and have fun!

Quicken is an older version of the checkbook program and I'm pretty sure I could not get it to run on Mint 4 either. Mepis 7.0 is the latest kernel for Mepis.

kMyMoney doesn't have a checkbook register.

Odd. All I use KMyMoney for IS a checkbook register with one bank account and one credit card account. What version are you evaluating? Maybe we have different definitions of "checkbook register." KMyMoney has more features that I actually use, but we all have different necessities. Maybe you need something more powerful such as GnuCash.

I tried GnuCash in the past and could not get it to handle more than one account but I was just looking at it again and found a way to have multiple accounts. Don't know if it had this in the past and I just missed it or if it is new. Don't know about HomeBank.

The version I tried was KMyMoney .08.

I checked KMyMoney on my machine. I am running the 0.9.1-0pm.cvs version. Yes, it is different from the 0.8 version. (I got it through the openSUSE Build Service, so keep that a secret.) Maybe you will find GnuCash will fit the bill, no pun intended. :)

Uh... Huh? It most certainly does! I was just using it a couple of minutes ago...

That's the version i use, which does have a checkbook register. I'm not sure what you were looking at, or what you consider to be a "checkbook register"...

I was checking out GnuCash but it seems there is some problems. I imported the accounts from Quicken and the balances were all wrong. I was correcting them and found one spot where I added $10 and the balance column said I added $10.03.

GnuCash is a fantastic program. It absolutely supports multiple accounts, so I'm not sure why you were not able to use more than one. I use to use Kmymoney, and only tried GnuCash because I'm trying to use as many Gnome apps as possible, and as few KDE apps. Let me tell you I was very happy I gave it a try, and will certainly be sticking with GnuCash from this point forward.
