Gnucash delete not working(Solved)

Post by GSimpson »

Anyone else have this issue. The program works fine apart from this and I have used it for a number of years but now Backspace and delete do not work.
If I highlight error with mouse I can type over.

Too little information. For example, what are you trying to delete, where, and what is the error you refer to?

Hi. I am trying to delete simple typing errors when entering information.
For example I type "bank feee" (an extra e) pressing backspace or moving the cursor between the eees and using delete key has no effect.
Another example I enter $130 and realise it should be $150 pressing backspace/delete has no effect whereas highlighting the 130 and typing 150 corrects it.

(Thanks for the reply catweasel. I have turned on notification of a reply now :oops: )

I have found this bug report. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1306500

Seems to be ibus issue but the packages appear to be installed on my system.

I appear to have found the solution.

I went to the Synaptic Package manager and found ibus-gtk:i386 was installed but not ibus-gtk3

I installed ibus-gtk3
Logged out and in again and the keys all working :)

GSimpson, Thanks for the info, very useful. I have been using GnuCash for at least 15 years.
Thanks again.
