I installed Virtual Box on the Vista computer. Then I installed Ubuntu
10.10 under Virtual Box. Once Ubuntu 10.10 was running I installed
GnuCash 2.4.0 from source. That took some doing. Had to find and
install many packages during the build. Also had to find workarounds to
two or three glitches that I ran into when trying to run GnuCash after
it was installed. (Fortunately the GnuCash community has posted the
problems and their solutions on the web. Thanks everyone.) Finally,
when GnuCash 2.4.0 was running under Ubuntu, I was able to print checks
correctly. So now, I use the GnuCash running under Vista to do my
bookkeeping and when I need to print a check I re-create the check on
GnuCash running under Ubuntu (running under Vbox, running under Vista)
and print the check from there. Fortunately I don't print many checks
I could move the bookkeeping to GnuCash on the virtual Ubuntu machine,
but I am hoping that someone who understands the new GnuCash will
identify the check printing problem on the Windows version and suggest a
