KMyMoney  (covered by the GNU license - see COPYING)

If you need some more information, please make sure to visit the projects
homepage at A lot of information is
found there.

KMyMoney is a true KDE application and therefor requires the KDE as well as
QT libraries. If you want to compile the application yourself, you have to
make sure to have the development relevant parts (include files, link
libraries) of these two projects. KMyMoney is based on min QT 3.2
and KDE 3.2

Prior to installation

To compile, you will need the development headers for KDE libs and all additional
you install (libofx, aqbanking, etc)
Also, you will need the compile tools. This includes make and gcc

Example for K/Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install tdelibs4-dev build-essential

Compiling and installing KMyMoney

1a) If you got the sources from CVS you will need to type:

make -f Makefile.dist

before you proceed. If you installed from a source tar-ball, you
don't have to run this command.

1b) If you got the sources from a tar-ball you will need to type:

tar -xvjf kmymoney2-[version].tar.bz2 or
tar -xvzf kmymoney2-[version].tar.gz

depending if the packages was made with bzip2 or gzip compression.
Change into the directory with

cd kmymoney2-[version]

The following steps have to be performed no matter where you got the source

2) Run configure to tell the project about your local environment

./configure --with-qt-dir=[your location of qt3] \
--prefix=[your location of trinity]

Debian/Ubuntu/Kubuntu/... users have to prepend the call to
configure with a variable setting to be able to view the online
manual from within the application. If you have such a system,
please use the following command syntax:

kde_htmldir=/usr/share/doc/tde/HTML ./configure ---with....

Below, please find a table of values for the above for several

Distribution | --with-qt-dir | --prefix
SuSE >= 8.1 | omit this parameter | ommit this parameter
Mandrake 9.0 | omit this parameter | /usr
Slackware >= 9.0 | omit this parameter | /opt/kde
MEPIS | omit this parameter | /usr
RedHat 8/9 | omit this parameter | /usr
Fedora 1/2 | omit this parameter | /usr
Mandriva 2006 | omit this parameter | /usr
Debian | omit this parameter | omit this parameter
K/X/Ubuntu | omit this parameter | omit this parameter

so for SuSE 9.1 the command is:

./configure --mandir=/usr/share/man

and for Debian/Ubuntu the command is:

kde_htmldir=/usr/share/doc/tde/HTML ./configure

Please tell us the values for other distributions, so we can add
them to this list. Send an e-mail to the developers mailing list.
See the address below.

3) Build the package by issuing the following command:


4) Gain root permissions to install the application

Type the command


and provide the necessary password to become 'root'.

(You can skip this step and step 6 if your distribution uses sudo, and just prefix
sudo the command in the next step. eg, sudo make install)

5) Install the application

Run the command

make install

to populate the directories in the KDE directory tree.

6) Revert to normal user



to become the normal user again. This concludes the installation
process of KMyMoney.

Please read INSTALL for generic instructions on how to use configure.
