to be a LITTLE more complete, Ubuntu doesn't include it because Debian
doesn't, and I believe Debian doesn't because of licensing issues
and/or other reasons.
However you CAN get a version with the online functions compiled in
from the Ubuntu Gnucash Packaging Team:
To get it, choose which version of Ubuntu you are using in the menu on
that page, then add the listed software repository to your Software
Sources. You will also want to add their OpenPGP key so the package
manager won't complain about it being unsigned.
UNFORTUNATELY, the latest version of GnuCash available in
Debian/Ubuntu is 2.2.6.
