Gnofin ("Guh-no-fin") is a personal finance application that runs
under GNOME. It is designed to
be fast, efficient, and easy-to-use. The scope of the project has been kept at
a minimum to preserve an interface that is both intuitive and straight-forward
However, Gnofin also provides a plugin system that allows it to be extended
in terms of the tools/functions it provides and the file formats it can handle.
For example, a plugin has been written that enables Gnofin to read Quicken
Interchange Format (QIF) files. This enables existing account records created
by Quicken (or other compatible
tools) to be imported easily into Gnofin.
Since Gnofin runs under GNOME, it is necessary to have the complete GNOME libraries
installed on your system. If you are running a recent Linux distribution, like Redhat 6.1, you should already
have the necessary libraries installed on your system. Although, it is
still recommended that you upgrade to the most recent distributions of the libraries.
In particular, it is important to upgrade to a recent version of libxml. The libxml
that comes with Redhat 6.2 should be fine.
Beware, Gnofin is a work in progress. As such, some features are
incomplete; however, it is already quite usable (and useful) for many tasks.
But, please if you find that Gnofin has behaved badly, get in touch with the
developers so that we might fix the problem as soon as possible.
A big thank you to the folks at VA Linux
for providing sourceforge.net.
It really has made a difference in the progress of this project.
