I did a few searches against the email lists and I didn't find any
Ubuntu-specific problems people have reported publicly except possibly
the recent issue of over-maximized GnuCash windows under Ubuntu 9.04
"Jaunty." (Reported independently by Erik Felthauser and Jamar.) That
hasn't happened to me on Jaunty so I cannot confirm. One was an
upgrade from an older GnuCash version under Fedora and the other
appears to be new with a data conversion from Quicken.

HOWEVER there have been numerous bugfixes since 2.2.6. For various
complaints the first recommendation on the Users list is to try a
later version, and the only options for Ubuntu users have been to
either self-compile or download the package at I have been
hesitant to recommend folks point to Löic's PPA (upload/download area
for Ubuntu developers) but a PPA might be the simplest workaround
until the Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 (October) release.

Possibly Löic would rather most users be advised upgrade from another
place -- maybe a PPA dedicated to GnuCash upgrades (PPAs are offered
free for the asking, but are associated with a specific person or team
defined in
