This error implies you installed gnucash 1.8, not gnucash 2.0.x.
I suggest you update from "gnucash" to "gnucash2".

I have no idea what you mean by the "GnuCash Launcher 2.0.2"..

That only means that /sw/bin isn't in your PATH.

Well, I'd first suggest you uninstall gnucash and gnucash2..  Then try again.
