Just yesterday we told you about a new version of GnuCash, a version that fixed many issues and included some features. However GnuCash is not the only program that exists for bring our accounts with our Ubuntu. There are many programs to do this, some free, some not free, some basic such as LibreOffice Calc and others more experienced as ERP programs, But today we are not going to talk about all but rather about three basic, free and accessible options for Ubuntu and its users.
What name these options do not mean that other applications will not be able to add numbers, only that they have greater support, are more used and therefore more tested than other applications but we can always return to Use LibreCalc |
It is the most famous program on accounting in Ubuntu. While it still has the occasional bug, GnuCash is a very simple and intuitive program, translated into several languages and currencies that will work quite well for novice users. Its installation is simple as it is in the official Ubuntu repositories and through the terminal or through the Software Center we can install GnuCash. Well it is true that it has some limitations, but as I say, GnuCash is perfect for simple accounting and not for professional accounting.
KMyMoney is a financial program for KDE environments. It is an old but simple and quite complete program. For my taste the interface is a bit more complicated than GnuCash, but something that many KDE users will like. Its database is compatible with that of other programs so that up we can import data from GnuCash or Excel, To mention better known programs. Like the previous program, KMyMoney is in the official repositories and is fully functional with non-KDE environments, although in these cases the program will work a little worse.
Of the three programs we talked about, Buddi is the most complete program in existence, As it not only allows the import and export of data to other programs but also has a section of connectors which will allow us to complete and adapt the program to our needs. Unlike the rest, Buddi is not in the official repositories so we will have to go to this link and download the deb package for installation. Once installed, both the settings and usage are very intuitive, like GnuCash.
Conclusion on these account programs
There are very few days left until the end of the year and with that many not only sign up for the gym but also try to keep our accounts and our financial appearance pristine so as not to have tax problems, but it seems that as in the gym case, this is something utopian, although in the case of accounts it is easy to comply with these programs do not you think?
