Good day,

Been using gnucash for years and coming through with the same file from 
version to version of Ubuntu - Fedora and Debian.

Just copy the saved file to new install - click on gnucash and a few 
more clicks and she goes.

Now just installed ubuntu 11.10 and going through the same motions as usual.
What a surprise " no back end ".

Now going through the motions to create a new file - all fine.
The file name now is "   xxx.gnucash "

Ok it seems that something more should be done to be compatible...I hope 
it is possible, would not like to redo the file from start....

Kindly some pointers please


should this be done on gnucash mail list.
