side-by-side 1.8.12 and 1.9.8

The package was created using checkinstall so does not have any 
specified dependencies. Install it using:

sudo dpkg -i gnucash-1.9.8_1.9.8-1_i386.deb

If you have any problems with missing libraries then use the package 
contents section of to find the additional 
packages you need. My old gnucash (1.8.12) seems fine but I would back 
up my accounts to be really sure....
