10:45:35 <vgeddes> Hey, I have a general question about the usage of accounting apps for personal finance...
10:45:52 <vgeddes> so many apps allow you to import bank transactions (QIF, etc). So with that in mind, is there any point in setting up “scheduled” transactions to track monthly salary and expenses.
10:46:04 *** gjanssens_ has joined #gnucash
10:46:21 <vgeddes> it seems like that would lead to duplication of transactions

12:35:35 <fell> Before your first invoice, you should edit Business->Sales Tax Table.

12:55:52 <gjanssens> do you have some more make context ?
12:55:54 *** spm_Draget has quit IRC
12:56:12 <gjanssens> Perhaps the make warnings you spoke about earlier are relevant
12:57:01 <gjanssens> when exactly did those happen (in which directory or in which phase of make all / install) ?
13:00:31 <fell> I disabled -Wall ,so make finished successful. my prefix is /home/frank/test to keep my running system clean.
13:01:57 <fell> until now there is no gsettings directory in share.
13:02:34 <fell> and that is somehow not checked by make install.

13:15:36 <fell> with a separate build tree
13:16:22 <gjanssens> In the build tree, are there *.gschema.valid and *.gschema.xml files in src/gnome/gschemas ?
13:19:46 *** dk5eo has quit IRC
13:21:17 <fell> gjanssens: yes
13:24:45 <gjanssens> fell: what output do you get when you run make install in that directory

13:33:50 <gncbot> gjanssens: Sent 4 minutes ago: <fell> http://pastebin.com/tNqcEGsn
13:33:56 <gjanssens> fell: this part is wrong
13:34:10 <gjanssens> it should have created the directory
13:34:29 <gjanssens> but there's no '/bin/mkdir -p' right after the ||
13:34:54 <gjanssens> You will have to check why your makefiles are not doing this
13:35:28 <gjanssens> You may find useful hints in your makefile are lines 177 and 604
13:35:39 <gjanssens> (the locations of the warnings)
13:37:14 <gjanssens> You can also test what the MKDIR_P variable gets set to in your makefile
13:37:30 <gjanssens> that's the variable that is normally expanded in this rule
13:39:02 <fell> 177: @$(NORMAL_INSTALL) [604 is the same]
13:40:22 *** jmd` has joined #gnucash
13:41:27 <fell> 394: mkdir_p = mkdir -p --
13:42:00 <gjanssens> mkdir_p is not the same as MKDIR_P
13:42:43 *** jmd` has quit IRC
13:43:22 <gjanssens> You will have to check in your makefile rules which is used in install-gsettings-schemas
13:43:31 <fell> MKDIR_P is used but not set in that file.
13:43:53 <monkeyjuice> i am using 2.4.10 on a kubuntu system i need to modify the invoice's will 2.5.* give me that or what options do i have .
13:46:16 <fell> monkeyjuice: does http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Custom_Reports help you?
13:46:36 <monkeyjuice> i will look thanks
13:49:37 *** jmd has joined #gnucash
13:49:56 <monkeyjuice> that just help with reports. i need to add info to the invoice output to printer...
13:52:55 <fell> also the invoices are (special) reports. Start with http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Using_GnuCash#Custom_Reports
13:53:20 <monkeyjuice> ok will look at that then thanks again
13:56:04 <fell> Reports->Business->(choose your preferred invoice)
13:56:45 <fell> Edit->Report Options
14:06:47 <monkeyjuice> it seems i need to goto print invoice then options and modify there not sure if it stays will do more testing thanks for the help
14:09:02 <monkeyjuice> dang it keeps changing back i need it to stay were i set it
14:10:26 *** Bodhi-Baum has quit IRC
14:12:10 <fell> gjannsens: also makefile.am defines only mkdir_p. Shouldn't variables containing commands allways be lowercase?

14:44:44 <gjanssens> fell: I have no idea, my makefile knowledge is also fairly limited.
14:45:16 <warlord> vgeddes: the import wont be able to specify all the splits for a salary transaction.
14:45:22 <gjanssens> Would you mind pasting your Makefile in a pastebin ?
14:45:32 <gjanssens> That way I can compare it easier to mine
14:46:11 <gjanssens> One difference to note is already that @$(NORMAL_INSTALL) only appears in line 601 for me
14:46:31 <fell> I am just testing with $(mkdir_p)
14:46:36 <gjanssens> It looks like your system is doing something with that parameter that mine isn't
14:47:36 <gjanssens> Line 72 in my makefile defines
14:47:39 <gjanssens> NORMAL_INSTALL = :
14:48:48 <warlord> monkeyjuice: report modifications are not kept; your best option is to make the changes you need and then keep the report-window open. When you want to print a different invoice then after you Post it instead of printing it swap to the open report page, click on Report Options, and then select the newly posted invoice.
15:01:37 <monkeyjuice> hmm not good , i would have to type the info in every day then ...
15:03:06 <monkeyjuice> the same info must be on every printable invoice
15:07:43 <fell> gjanssens: grep on the builddir shows MKDIR_P only in the gsettings context. All other parts use mkdir_p, which is set by configure in all makefiles defined.
15:10:52 <gjanssens> fell: does your Makefile.in have a line MKDIR_P = @MKDIR_P@ ?
15:13:34 <warlord> monkeyjuice: I dont understand what you mean that you would have to type the info in every day... If you re-use the report settings then all you need to do is pull up the new invoice and it will have the current settings.
15:13:55 <fell> gjanssens: in Makefile.in all MKDIR_P's are lowercase.
15:14:09 <gjanssens> Then your autogen.sh run already differs from mine
15:14:27 <gjanssens> Were there any warnings or errors while running autogen.sh ?
15:14:47 <gjanssens> (Makefile.in is generated by autogen.sh)
15:18:31 <fell> and yo, there is a 'mkdir_p = @mkdir_p@'
15:23:24 <gjanssens> fell: to be clear in my Makefile.in, both are defined.
15:30:52 <gjanssens> So you should first look at the output of autogen.sh
15:31:02 <gjanssens> for anything unusual
15:47:31 <fell> Beneath the glib-gettextize messages the only one is: Useless use of /d modifier in transliteration operator at /usr/share/automake-1.9/Automake/Wrap.pm line 60.
15:58:07 <gjanssens> hm, you are using automake-1.9
15:58:14 <gjanssens> mine is 1.13
15:58:20 <gjanssens> I wonder if that makes a difference
15:58:51 <gjanssens> do you have a more recent automake available on sabayon ?
16:01:00 *** Topcat has joined #gnucash
16:01:22 <fell> it's automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6
16:02:39 <gjanssens> fell: found this:
16:02:42 <gjanssens> https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/html_node/Obsolete-Macros.html
16:03:07 <gjanssens> it looks like mkdir_p is the old style and MKDIR_P is new style
16:03:29 <gjanssens> we may need to require a more recent automake
16:06:13 <gjanssens> or rather a more recent autoconf
16:06:21 <gjanssens> It's autoconf that defines this macro
16:06:37 <gjanssens> what version of autoconf do you have on your system ?
16:08:27 <gjanssens> mine is 2.69
16:10:49 <fell> autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.69
16:14:14 <fell> I just found 1.13.4 (probably I took the last from the list, which was not the most recent "13"<"9")
16:17:38 <fell> From the side above, we should require automake > 1.9.6
16:18:16 <fell> warlord: is that accepable for conservative ditribution?
16:19:15 <gjanssens> The windows build uses 1.11, which seems to work fine
16:19:30 <gjanssens> I have set it this requirement in 2011
16:19:55 <gjanssens> (March 2011)
16:20:09 *** aqua___ has joined #gnucash
16:20:13 <gjanssens> That means automake 1.11 is at least 2 and a half years available
16:20:17 <gjanssens> That should qualify
16:21:32 <gjanssens> It's also in RHEL6 (1.11.1)
16:21:50 <gjanssens> Which is by far the most conservative distro we intend to support
16:22:32 <gjanssens> But we already fail to do so
16:22:46 <gjanssens> RHEL6 ships gtk2+ 2.18
16:22:52 <gjanssens> We require 2.24
16:23:16 <gjanssens> But for automake at least 1.11 should be fine
16:25:31 <warlord> fell: We already don't support RHEL6 in 2.5..
16:26:43 *** hegemoOn has quit IRC
16:29:09 <fell> Then let us update the requirements.
16:37:19 <fell> in autogen[115]:find_program "$AUTOMAKE" automake 1.11 instead of 1.9
16:39:31 *** Topcat has quit IRC
16:39:44 <gjanssens> fell: go for it
16:39:58 <fell> okidoky
16:46:21 <fell> gjanssens: done
16:47:29 <gjanssens> yay!
16:47:44 <gjanssens> Let's hope this will sort out the issue for everybody
16:47:59 <gjanssens> Thanks for taking the time to help find the cause
16:50:19 <fell> Yesterday I started, to have a look at currencies locale-symbol and could not finish.
16:53:10 *** TradeBorG has quit IRC
16:56:08 <fell> autogen now warns: am-wrapper: aclocal: warning: auto-detected versions not found (1.9); falling back to latest available
16:56:39 <fell> which is in my case aclocal (GNU automake) 1.13.4
16:58:49 <fell> and more:

16:58:59 <fell> Makefile.am: for your code, to avoid questions about which license your project uses
16:59:44 <fell> and src/doc/design/Makefile.am:2: warning: suffix '.texinfo' for Texinfo files is discouraged; use '.texi' instead
17:00:40 <gjanssens> fell: I'm not getting any of these on my system...
17:01:06 <gjanssens> You may want to clean out your source directory
17:01:29 <gjanssens> It looks as if aclocal is reading some cache (still looking for automake 1.9)
17:01:53 <gjanssens> On the other hand, these may just be first time occurrences
17:02:19 <gjanssens> Does it happen again if you run autogen.sh again ?
17:04:08 <gjanssens> I do get the warning about texinfo -> texi
17:04:17 <gjanssens> That's the only one
17:04:50 <gjanssens> Further debugging will be for later
17:05:00 <gjanssens> I'm done for today
17:05:11 <gjanssens> See you guys (and girls ?)
17:10:07 *** gjanssens has quit IRC
17:14:49 <fell> in the second run instead I get:

17:14:57 <fell> libtoolize: rerunning libtoolize, to keep the correct libtool macros in-tree.
