I'm glad it works. There is however still a problem on your system: if you install in /usr/local, you 
should not have needed to set the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment parameter. The free desktop 
specification [1] notes in this regard that if XDG_DATA_DIRS is not set, both it should be 
assumed to be /usr/local/share:/usr/share.

So either the XDG_DATA_DIRS is set in your environment (I know kde sets it), or your 
distribution is doing something weird. At least that's the only two options I can imagine why it 
doesn't work.

You asked about a .gnucashrc file ? There is (in your case) /usr/local/etc/gnucash/environment. 
You can add a line there, but note that you should use ; (semicolon) as a separator instead of : 
(colon) inside that file. And this file will be overwritten by your next make install.

If you had installed in any other directory than /usr or /usr/local, gnucash would have taken care 
of setting XDG_DATA_DIRS properly for you. It doesn't for /usr and /usr/local as per the free 
desktop specification I mentioned above.
