1.3 - how to reverse a payment - accidentally all open invoices paid

Hi,

I run into a situation with the payment for vendor:

I went to Cash / Payment form, selected a  Vendor, the form brought up all open invoices.

I write the refererence and posted the form and instead of one invoice, it closed all of them as paid.

In other words:  

  • 10 invoices open, each of them are 1000,-  (10 x 1000 in total)
  • I wanted to register only one invoice ( 1 x 1000), but as I saved, I found that, all of them registered as paid in one date

My question, what is the proper way to change/reverse these payments and start registering again one by one?

Thank you!

István

Errant overpayment

Having entered a customer over-payment, I now want to cut the customer a 
check for the over-payment amount. How do I get rid of the AR 
over-payment amount?

I am running 1.3.30.

Hi,

I prepared a LedgerSMB Virtual Machine Appliance for those, who would like to evaluate or use the stock 1.3 / 1.4.

The system built in Virtualbox, the downloadable disk image is in VMDK format -> so, expert users can convert to other full virtualization images, such as KVM, Qemu, Xen, Vmware, Microsoft whatever etc.

The system has autologin and all necessary documentation included right on the Desktop. Please read before ask. There are contact information, too inside the system.

So, the links:

Re: LedgerSMB


:
  •  you can wipe out /opt/ledgersmb/* and copy the 1.4 files to that. Now you have an 1.4 system and you can compare the functionalities etc.
Managed to wipe out /opt/ledgersmb/* and then copied everything from /LedgerSMB/git-1.4 into /opt/ledgersmb. (A non-trivial task.)

Then I asked the computer for localhost/setup.pl.

Said 1.3 datables upgrade.

Went yes.

Get:

Upgrade failed:

Any suggestions on what to do so that I could get LedgerSMB 1.4 working?

Reply to Digest Vol 94, Issue 5

Ref.: Install sickness

Hi Darald,

One tip dont be unfriendly to Open Source People and dont force them to follow your perspective or your thoughts or ideas.

Dont forget these guys (no girls I assume) do this job in their free time without charge.

You and I know Ledgersmb is constantly developing. Chris and his core developer team are doing their best to improve the features within LSMB. Consequently this could be result in a different installation procedure. I have experienced this several times and now again. The support I get is wonderful realizing that the person has not all the time of the world.

Indeed LSMB is not the easiest software but it is straightforward. Now I am coping with configuration with Apache 2.4. I have nearly found the clue but still exploring and it is a challenge to find.

For instance I found out that for ubuntu you have to change ledgersmb.conf.default into ledgersmb.conf. Why I dont know but it works.

Again these guys (developers and engineers) need respect.......and open source is an exploring activity.

Okay enough about this. As soon as I have a virtual image of 1.4 working I will message you. Damn...........Apache.....lol.

kind regards

Frans

Hi,

Nowadays there are a several virtualization techniques on the market, lot of them are free. I limit the question to the "full" virtualization: virtualbox, kvm, microsoft version (whatever they called), xen (maybe).

I would like to know, what can you do with a simple disk image, which holds a complete 32 bit system?


Are you able to convert to your preferred format? (vmdk, vdi, raw, qcow2 etc.)

Are you able to create a 32 bit virtual machine, with 1GB RAM and 1 LAN port (dhcp will be used), VESA compatible VGA and import the virtual disk image?

Are you able to adjust the guest system to fulfill your virtualization? (kernel for virtual machines, guest packages like in virtualbox etc.)


Bye,

Istv?n

On earlier occasions I kept quiet, because I didn't feel my contribution on
the subject would be constructive or even positive. However, this time I
can't suppress the urge to respond.

The age of documentation doesn't really matter if there's no release
requiring different instructions. Apparantly, others worked off those
instructions just fine or knew how to get it installed with some extra
information from the users list. Additionally, there is a significant and
well supported network of people who offer professional services, including
installation services for very reasonable fees. Some may even charge less
than the cost of a copy of proprietary systems on the market (e.g.
Quickbooks Pro).

If you really think (F)OSS software can be managed without specialist
knowledge, you're wrong. Some of the most complex software is developed as
OSS. LedgerSMB, being an ERP (not just an accounting system), is among
those complex systems. As Istvan pointed out, lots of things can go wrong
if a system isn't managed with the right knowledge. Just being able to set
up LedgerSMB isn't enough to safely manage your business's data.

Also, just bitching around on the users mailing list and then on the
development mailing list isn't going to improve the situation. Frankly,
from what I read, you were mainly showing your own incompetence to set up a
working Linux machine, failing to select the right software to install --
not even getting to the point where you could start to install LedgerSMB,
even though numerous people stepped up to help.

I'm affraid waiting 4 or 5 years won't help. Installation and especially
management of a LedgerSMB software install will get easier, but won't get
to the levels where it's end-user-level point-and-click install and
management -- the level that you seem to be looking for. The software is
simply too complex. If you want something point-and-click, I suggest you
try something else. Maybe osFinancials (
http://www.osfinancials.org/indexold.php/en/) can offer what you're looking
for. If osFinancials doesn't work for you, maybe GnuCash (
http://www.gnucash.org/) can. The latter is definitely more aimed at the
consumer level than LedgerSMB; a friend of mine uses the former.


I hope you do find what you're looking for somewhere. I really do. It won't
be here. I'm sorry.

I will apologize for assuming that it wouldn't take a specialist to install.

In the past I received assistance from a friend who at that time had over
20 years of perl experience and had work as a sys admin for a number of
years and he also couldn't get Ledger SMB to run. His comment was something
like incomplete instructions.

This last time I started the process of installing to a virtual machine
using assistance. That assistance dried up with no reasons given.
The second option was to hire someone on this list whose minimum charge was
$500. So $500 USD is considered a reasonable charge to install software.
Taking something like maybe an hour I was told.
Sorry for a small business $500 is NOT 'very reasonable fees'.

Sort of interesting that I have been able to run things for as long as I
have and not had issues.

Again - - - I understand that this list does not want to be disturbed. I
get that loud and clear, REALLY LOUD AND CLEAR.

So - - - for the next dumb sap who tries to install - - - - what are they
to do?

Which tower are they to genuflect to so that they can get answers when the
install doesn't go as is indicated in the instructions?

Please indicate! (This won't be for me. I can't afford to use software like
this!)

Which numerous people stepped up to help?

What - - 2/3 people asked questions and I was told to be patient that there
would be answers - - - - sorry if that's your definition of assistance you
won't be assisting me at any time.

I will find something! Why - - - because there are millions of other people
out there like me and someone somewhere will someday realize that that
group would find something that isn't going to cost serious dollars to
install attractive and useful.

This elitist thinking is what's killing OSS - - - if you can't make the
directions clear enough and straightforward enough for a steady 12 year old
to understand well you don't have good business software.
If you think I'm a moron for stating it this bluntly observe very carefully
when you visit the next 20 offices you have occasion to attend. You will
find that in none of those (and likely the next 9979 out 10000) a person
who could sit down and install LedgerSMB using the instructions provided
today. Yet its likely that at least 5000 if not 7500 of those same offices
could use LedgerSMB.

So why are you as a group so dead set AGAINST making this easy to install?
(Absolutely not referring to point and click instead referring to an
instruction set that actually refers to something somewhat current (not
like the instructions for an install about 18 months old - - - any yes I
just checked!)) and work.

The attitude that is being displayed on this list is why Linux isn't taking
off in the first world. It won't either - - - because business people don't
have time for 'attitude' from IT departments nor individuals - - - we just
need to get the job done and when it doesn't get done that particular issue
is fixed.

Good luck in attracting users!!

LedgerSMB 1.3 & 1.4 Appliance Intro based on Linuxmint 17 LTS

Hi Everyone,

After I saw several people have problems with installing and managing ledgersmb, I planned to build a standalone LedgerSMB appliance.

I plan to sell these appliances worldwide to companies, which contains:

  • a Mini PC,
  • storage (HDD or SSD)
  • LTS Operating system and additional softwares as you can read below and you can see on the youtube
  • shipping can start from 6th of August , worldwide, by TNT
  • pricing: under calculation
  • payment: paypal
  • company details: billing and shipping information, contact with email and cellular phone required
  • Options: HDD (500GB) or SSD (60-240GB) - feedback would be nice (hdd - low noise, ssd - completly silent and fast)
  • RFQ: info-RRrXpFqUq6wHWmgEVkV9KA@public.gmane.org or pongracz.istvan-RRrXpFqUq6wHWmgEVkV9KA@public.gmane.org

Please note: my company is a special hardware distributor and supporter since 2009. Company details can be found here: www.startit.hu

Here are the goals (requirements) and existing feature list of the system:

Goals:

  • Have an LTS linux distribution
  • Have a Mini PC (small form, low power, passive cooling, long warranty period)
  • Always get the latest changes of ledgersmb for 1.3 and 1.4 without waiting for anybody
  • Regular backup from the all DBs to the localhost and to the cloud (!)
  • Working out of the box
  • Possibility of customizing the system by experienced users
  • Can be used as standalone workstation
  • For SOHO without experienced linux sysadmin

Feature list

  • The linux distribution is Linuxmint 17 LTS (equivalent to Ubuntu 14.04LTS)
  • Always up to date LSMB 1.3 and 1.4 directly pulled from github, but upgrading the live
  • is a manual process to keep your modifications safe
  • Nginx + fcgiwrap for low system resources
  • Postgresql 9.3
  • Email sending via smarthost, Postfix (for example using Gmail)
  • Already installed 1.3 test company with some test data and transactions for starting
  • PDF printing is working
  • Add your printer using the GUI
  • Dropbox preinstalled - ready to add or create account
  • Daily backup of all databases under Dropbox folder (daily, weekly, monthly, latest)
  • ssh and vino-server (vnc) available
  • and a lot more

Hardware features:

  • Intel Atom Z530, 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, Passive cooling
  • 6-10W power consumption
  • approx. 10x10x2.5 cm, VESA bracket optional
  • DVI-D output over a HDMI connector
  • Internal 2.5" bay for hdd or ssd
  • 2 x Gigabit LAN + Wifi
  • 4 x USB2
  • miniSD socket, RS232 port
  • 5 years hardware warranty for the computer

Youtube video of the appliance (recorded directly from the hdmi output of the appliance):

  • http://youtu.be/LzBeRKBfLfE (more than 23 minutes long)
    • Standard settings of the desktop
    • Entering to the preinstalled and filled test company
    • Important files: SystemDoc.txt, links to setup files should be modified on the desktop
    • Postfix, nginx, network settings hints
    • Where is the location of the the daily DB backup
    • How to sync ledgersmb 1.3 and/or 1.4 from github directly and "install" to the live system (into http root)
    • Hardware list (lshw-gtk)

Here I share the quick howto document about the system, which can help others to build their own solution/system, for free :)

----------------------  System Doc for Linux power users -----------------

System users
ledgersmb : ledgersmb
postgres : ledgersmb

GUI / Xfce4
The system uses autologin to start the GUI, so, it is not necessary to login manually.
Using the Xfce, the user can setup the network, dropbox, access to the DB via pgadmin3,
can configure printer, network share etc.
Please refer to the Linuxmint Xfce control panel.

LedgerSMB repo paths
1.3 git local clone:
/home/ledgersmb/LedgerSMB/git-1.3

1.4 git local clone:
/home/ledgersmb/LedgerSMB/git-1.4

LedgerSMB path
/opt/ledgersmb
(www-data:www-data 0775)

Modifications
- /etc/nginx/conf.d/lsmb.conf : added:
fastcgi_read_timeout 120s;
- Details in /home/ledgersmb/Desktop/modifications-to-1.3.log
ledgersmb-red.css change
file upload limit to 40MB
cookie name changed
contrib dir changed to the actual version of postgresql

Webserver
nginx + fcgiwrap

Database
Postgresql-9.3
all authentication changed to md5 from peer, even on localhost

Accessing to ledgersmb
http://localhost/setup.pl
http://localhost/login.pl

Superuser and password:
postgres : ledgersmb

Accessing to the test system:
User : test
Password : test

postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
restart postfix

Backup
DB backup happens every day (cron.daily) for all databases in Postgresql.
The backup directory is: /home/ledgersmb/Dropbox/autopostgresqlbackup
You can see the following subdirectories: daily, latest, monthly, weekly
I think the directory structure is talkative.

Please refer to the followind settings of the autopostgresqlbackup:
/etc/default/autopostgresqlbackup

Notes:
To be able to make automatic backup, the root has a password file here:
/root/.pgpass
It contains the database server location and superuser credentials.
Please be careful about the permissions and owner of that file, it
must root:root and 600

Dropbox
Backups exist under the Dropbox directory, which means, if you have or create a
dropbox account, your backup will be uploaded to the cloud automatically.

To create a new dropbox account, just follow the dropbox installation
process.
Thunar filemanager already has the dropbox plugin, installed from xubuntu-dev/extras ppa.

Howto

Setup network
- GUI/Desktop method: just config the network via the Networkmanager. In this case
the Networkmanager will handle the interfaces. Comfortable.
- Settings file: as root you can add and setup your interface in /etc/network/interfaces
In this case Networkmanager will not handle that interface and you can disable the
GUI (X desktop) completly.

Update git repositories
- cd to the git directory and issue in command line: git pull

Upgrade the running ledgersmb instance
- create a backup of the live instance as root (/opt/ledgersmb)
- copy from the source to the target, except the .git directory (/home/ledgersmb/LedgerSMB/git-1.3 -> /opt/ledgersmb)
- change user and rights: chmod -R 0775 /opt/ledgersmb and chown www-data:www-data /opt/ledgersmb
- apply the modifications to the ledgersmb source, if any (for example slight css modification - lightred in test mode)
- login to the setup.pl and upgrade the DB of your instances

Change postgres user's password
You have to login to the postgresql as postgres user, using the default password (ledgersmb).
If you entered to the psql console, you can change the password as you like.
Here you can see the steps:

ledgersmb <at> ledgersmb-FITPC2i ~/LedgerSMB $ psql -U postgres -W
Password for user postgres:
psql (9.3.4)
Type "help" for help.

postgres=# alter user postgres with password 'ledgersmb';

What you have to do at first start:
- Change/Adjust your network settings: IP address (default is dhcp)
- Change the password of the ledgersmb user (default is ledgersmb)
- Change the password of postgres user (default is ledgersmb):
-> in Postgresql as described in the howto section
-> in the following file: /root/.pgpass to have working backup
- Create or add your existing Dropbox account and merge the existing
/home/ledgersmb/Dropbox folder to get remote backup of your daily
backup to Dropbox.
- Optionally you can adjust or disable the desktop, add network share,
setup routing etc.

Please note, the primary goal is running LedgerSMB on this unit, so,
think twice before cut :)

Known issues, limitations
- ODS export does not work, even the requested perl module installed
- the recent config (500GB, 5000rpm HDD + ext4) provides not the best performance
--- use ZFS native for the DB, for safety reason
--- use SSD instead of HDD
--- tune postgresql
--- mix them together :)
- you have to define your network address (IP address) manually
--- just change your settings using the Desktop and Networkmanager
--- or edit the config file if you do not want to start the Desktop
- at this moment it based on linuxmint 17 Xfce Desktop
--- it has advantages and disadvantages. One can turn off the desktop and unnecessary services if it wants to do.
Or one can listen to internet radio, use the system as router etc.


Handy tools in Desktop
PGAdmin3 - to access to PG in a comfortable way
Desktop sharing without password - access with remmina (vnc)
ssh server
Libreoffice
Printer admin
Backup admin
Radiotray - internet radio, you can add your station
You can use any desktop application (graphical git client for example)
Synaptic package manager
Dropbox

Questions

Greetings

Downloaded the 3.0 GB vdi file.

I'm a total newbie to running virtualbox!!

Installed Ledgersmb1.3.36.

Started it (seems to be running ubuntu).

Can't find anything to start ledgersmb.

What do I do?
(No installation instructions that I could see nor find.)

Those are good points. Plus you have the evolution of PCI compliance in
response to such incidents. This is a very complicated topic, and I have
usually directed people to the PCI Standards as the first place to start
reading. The question of malware is also something which has received
additional scrutiny in more recent versions of the standards but that's not
the only area.

For most of our users, I think recommending dedicated dial-in terminals for
credit card processing really is the best way (i.e. avoid the PCI
compliance and theft/malware concern regarding credit cards entirely).

Maybe it would be a good point to bring this up on list?
