I run the up to date versions on Ubuntu using flatpak which is kept updated
with the latest version - see https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Flatpak for
details. I think it runs ok on Mint linux also and there's no need to
compile anything, just run a "flatpak update" now and again to update to
any new version available - so easy :-)
Cheers David H.
