Oh Boy! All that effort to overcome a real dumb move. Happy to say it is up and, I think, running. Minding your advice, I went to "help" to read the tutorial. But I hit another wall. Got the following alert:
"GnuCash could not find the files for the help documentation. This is likely because the 'gnucash-docs' package is not installed."
I promise I will not bug you with questions, but if you could get me past this hurdle, I will rely on the "help" menu from now on!
Thanks so much again. Look forward to venturing into the program.
