Here are a couple of packages which are available from within Synaptic 
Package Manager that might fit the bill for you, and will be easier to 
install than something you get off the web. 8-) Here is the description 
of the first one called kraft

This next one is web based, and requires the installation of Apache web 
server, so it may not be what you are looking for. It is called 
sql-ledger and here is the description -

I'm a little surprised at these sparse results, as I can remember when I 
first started using Ubuntu, I wanted a checking account program, and 
while searching Synaptic for one, I remember running across several full 
blown accounting software packages, that were way more than what I 
needed to keep track of my checking account, but now I can't seem to 
think of a search term which will reveal them to me again. I wish I 
could remember what terms I searched on then.

Anyway, that's what I could find, I hope it's of some help to you.

Later, Ray Parrish
