Units in Inventory

Hi All,
 
Under Goods & Services/Add a Part there is a "Unit" field and "On hand".  I get "On Hand" but I don't know what "Unit" is for.  It doesn't seem to be affected by buying and selling that widget.  What is it?
 
Thanks
Bob

Re: Installation on OSX Yosemite

In mid-2012 I installed LSMB 1.3 on OS X 10.6 and posted the procedure to this list. It’s now at
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.finance.ledger.smb.user/6347. Andy Satori also
documented his similar install  http://www.druware.com/code/index.shtml. OS X is built on BSD Unix,
apache and Perl are built in, and there are Mac double-click install packages for Postgresql and TeX. You
need Xcode as well. I would strongly advise using a local Perl like Perlbrew to avoid modifying the OS X
system Perl. If you are comfortable working at the command line and have an understanding of how all the
pieces fit together, you should be able to get a clean installation running on localhost in a couple days,
without resorting to MacPorts or Fink. In my case days turned into weeks, although this list was
invariably patient and helpful.

If you consider your time valuable, purchasing hosting of LSMB for a period of time from one of the vendors at
http://ledgersmb.org/topic/commercial-support would let you begin learning and evaluating LSMB
right away. I could have saved a lot of time if someone had suggested that to me earlier. I have used Efficito
for LSMB 1.4 and can recommend them highly and the system is always fully patched and up to date.

If you complete an installation on OS X 10.10 please post the procedure here.

Installation on OSX Yosemite

I have started the installation for LedgerSMB for OSX Yosemite.  But 
after looking around for install instructions, I failed to find any 
which really felt all that useful.

Most of the instructions I found were for LedgerSMB with some kind of 
package manager which has a package built for LedgerSMB.  I suppose that 
could be done for OSX with something like MacPorts of Fink, which it 
seems you probably want anyway in order to install it.

I am also hoping to be building a new machine, most likely Gentoo.  But 
that will probably take some time to put together largely due to funds, 
and also that Gentoo takes a darn long time to put together anyway.

Integrating LedgerSMB with a member database

  Dear LedgerSMB authors and users,

  I am one of the treasurers of an alumini association. I intent to
modernize our treasury, and I'm considering using LedgerSMB to do that.
  Our association has a PostgreSQL alumni database containing financial
data, such as which alumni paid their subscription, and I would like this
to be linked with our accounting data. The fact that LedgerSMB also uses
PostgreSQL to store accounting data is very promising from this point of
view.
  So I have some questions to ask :

1) To ease integration between alumni and accounting data, I would like to
have them both in the same database. This implies to put accounting data in
a different namespace than alumni data to avoid name clashes. Is this
possible ? If I change the db_namespace variable in
/etc/ledgersmb/ledgersmb.conf, is it enough to ensure that LedgerSMB will
never do anything in namespace "public" ?

2) In that case, then my intent is to add a transaction in the accounting
data each time a new subscription appears in the alumni data, probably via
a TRIGGER. After reading some parts of the source, it seems to me that
adding a transaction just consists in :
a) adding a new line in table "gl" ;
b) for each account affected by the transaction, adding a new line in table
"acc_trans".
Is this correct ? Will this remain true in future versions of LedgerSMB ?

  Regards.

LedgerSMB Manual Link on site is wrong

That link just leads to
http://sourceforge.net/p/ledger-smb/code/HEAD/tree/

I have added a copy of the manual and coding standards pdfs
to <a href="forums.ledgersmb.org">forums.ledgersmb.org</a> on the <a
href="http://forums.ledgersmb.org/docs.html">documentation page</a>.

These come from 1.4.12. I also noted that the coding standards are about to
change.

pos versions

Hi
Was looking to play around with different ways of using LedgerSMB.
I see a "point of sale" link on the sourceforge page but when I click
it I see no download link. Do I need to use svn to bring it down to my
machine?

There are references on this list to wxPOS being used, where is this?
(there is a Python version that seems to have been not updated in a
few years)

Are there other POS applications out there that people have integrated
to LedgerSMB?

Thanks

Bill

starman and 1.4 usage

Hi
I have experimented with starman with 1.4.
There is one bug that I keep coming across which is not in the apache version (I get errors when I try to print).

Is it considered an experimental release or should I submit bug reports on it?

Bill

Type of Business

Hi
How do I make a customer be a "Type of Business"?
I can create a type of business with a discount but I can't see how to use it.

Thanks

balance sheet csv missing description


On the PDF and the HTML output, the account description comes out fine.
On the CSV output, that column is blank.
(I have to use the CSV so that I can then sort by GIFI and generate my T2SCH100)

This is 1.4.12.

GIFI reports


With 1.4.12, how do I get incoming and balance sheets rolled up
by GIFI account rather than chart of accounts?

payments in the future


I was entering a bill (Vendor Invoice) that will get invoiced to a CC next
week.  With 1.4.11ish (I'll upgraded to 1.4.12 this afternoon), when I
entered a day that was in the future in the payment part, something seemed to
think it was blank, and complained at me.

Finally, I entered nothing, and used the Cash/Payment to mark it as paid,
and that worked fine.  I think I've done this in the past with other
versions.

Feature or bug?
