I have moved on to version 2.0.2 and successfully compiled and installed it. I
had libOFX but didn't know that you had to pass a parameter to get it
included. So that is now working.
However, I am still having problems with the help files.
I downloaded gnucash-docs-2.0.1 and configured, compiled and installed the
help files but to no avail. The help info cannot be accessed from the help
I again ran gnucash with debug and loglevel 6 and found the following error in
the trace file:
Enter in gnc-hooks.c: gnc_hook_run()list hook_ui_post_startup, data (nil)
Enter in gnc-hooks.c: gnc_hook_lookup()name hook_ui_post_startup
Leave: gnc_hook_lookup()hook list 0x8154e98
Debug: gnc_gnome_help(): Attempting to opening help file gnucash-guide.xml
Error: gnc_gnome_help(): There was an error launching the default action
command associated with this location
In my system, all of the gnucash files are installed
The help files are installed in /usr/local/share/gnome/help/gnucash
When configuring, I just accepted the default.
