Colin,
I assume that you are asking me.  One of my windows 7 machines is a
desktop with an Intel G630 2.7 GHz Processor with 5.85 GB useable RAM
running 64 bit Windows 7 Pro SP1.  The other is a newer HP laptop with
an Intel i5-3210M processor 2.5 GHz with 7.88GB useable RAM running the
same version of Windows.  I just put the October 22 build of GnuCash
2.6.4 on that machine a few minutes ago.  The October 27 build will not
install.
I also have an older laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 with only 2 GIG of RAM

Gnucash on the new computer with all my existing accounts etc currently in

Thank very much!

gc 2.6.4 Accounts Tab Performance/Lag/Slowness

Hi all,

GC 2.6.4 on Windows 7 Pro x64 (also 2.6.3, at least, this is not a new
issue)

Basically, I'm quite happy with the overall performance of GC. All the
various register tabs are snappy, hyperlinks from reports to registers are
fine. Jumping between different account register tabs, great.

But when I click on the Accounts tab, there's a noticeable performance
change. THere's a slight pause before the accounts show. When I try to
expand or collapse the accounts tree or any subtree, there's a lag/delay
between when I click, and when the expand/collapse actually occurs.

Scrolling in the Accounts tab is also slow with visible video tearing. In
an account register, by contrast, I can scroll with the mouse wheel
(non-clicky wheel) and the register will fly up and down! But in the
ACcounts tab, slow, choppy scrolling, tearing visible, time consuming to
scroll.

My system is moderately high-spec i7 920 with a fast video card, Quadro
600. I have tried setting the Windows visual effects to both "best
performance" and "best appearance". No change in gc.

I have also tried creating an empty file, with just a long list of
accounts, and find the same issue, so it does not appear to be data related.

I have tried removing the .gnucash folder to reset configs to default. No
improvement.

Sorry guys I think I now understand hence ill try again

Hi There,

Firstly can I apologise for sending you email without subscribing hence all emails before this please
disregard so we can start again.

Now my question which seems to be simple to do but can not for the life of me work this out even looking at your
tutorial I just can’t seem got get it yet its a simple request I think that the software can do.

Firstly as it was only one account I have set up my small business account a dream and entered everything from
April into it and it works well. I basically got income account, expenses account then all going to one
account named (Cash In Hand) and it all works out well even all Reconciled correctly so this account is
working fine and is in a separate folder for my business as already suggested and yes I totally understand
how this works and can see the logic and how it calculates.

Now my problem is my personal accounts let me try to explain

my main problem as I said is my personal accounts which there are 4 of them

All accounts are bank accounts

Account 1 = Personal
Account 2 = Household
Account 3 = Savings Halifax
Account 4 = Savings Post Office

so basically this is where I think I have gone wrong I have set up each account like my business hence Account 1
(personal) has and income and expense accounts all adding and subtracting and putting the totals into the
top account called personal. I have repeated this for the next 3 accounts hence like my 4 bank statements
they all work out with no problems. i.e. on every account i have income and expenses hence 4 accounts and 4
lots of income and expense one of each for each account.

Hi -- you sent this message to me alone, and I may not be as able to help
as others on the list.

I'm copying this question to the GnuCash User list AND updating the subject
because you're asking a different question from your previous one.  If you
respond, PLEASE be sure to use "reply-all" in your email program so
everyone on the gnucash-user list gets to see it. We are all volunteers
here and I'm no "expert"; you just happened to ask a question yesterday
that I happened to remember had been answered before.

Setting up gnucash for charity with project

Hi! I am a newbie on the list and have just taken over as a charity
treasurer. The existing accounts are a bit random, but as it was just income
and expenditure they survived. About a year ago, they won some restricted
funding (about 5X annual turnover) from a range of funders for a new
building project and the old “system” collapsed along with the treasurer. I
am now trying to sort out the mess and have started to use GnuCash (for my
first time). The straightforward income and expenditure are fine, but what
is the best way to set up the project with its restricted funds?

Also, what is the best management account report to show the relationship
between the project and the main P&L as reserves have been regularly moved
to and fro to meet matching requirements. Sorry to ask such a naïve
question. Thanks in anticipation

Chris

How to debug ofx download?

   Hi. I'm trying to download transactions from my credit union through
   GnuCash.
   I'm getting invalid sign-in errors, but I need more info on where the
   OFX DirectConnect User Setup fields are used when talking to my credit
   union.
   (It used to work, but the credit union changed something.)
   Their new ids are:
   ORG: TECHCUDC
   Branding ID: 15079
   FID: 121181976
   OFX URL: [1]https://m.techcu.com/ofxserver/ofxsrvr.dll
   The error message I'm getting is:
   22:43:51 Status for signon request: Signon invalid (Code 15500,
   severity "ERROR")
   The user cannot signon because he or she entered an invalid user ID or
   password.
   22:43:51 Status for account info request: Signon invalid (Code 15500,
   severity "ERROR")
   The user cannot signon because he or she entered an invalid user ID or

Just a Quick help question on network drives please help

Hi There,

Just started using your software which by the way is brilliant, As I run a small D.J. and Karaoke business
which is a cash business this software is so simple its amazing. But I do have 1 problem all my data is stored
on a samba server and also mirrored for security incase of hdd failure. The question is basically when you
opt to save as or to open the software will only look at your local hard drive and no where else. I have made my
templets etc and started my accounts and the folder of data is on my desktop. I then transfer that folder to
my network server which is mounted to my mac but when going to open that folder in the software it does not
give me the option to browse network hence I am a bit worried on having sensitive data on my local machine and
not being backed up you see.

So have you any idea how I can open and save my accounts data on a network server drive please

Thanks in Advance

Martin
