CheckBook Tracker

In order to leave Windows behind most people need a fully-functional money management program. CheckBook Tracker seeks to solve that problem. It has the feel and features of packages like Microsoft Money without requiring the user to build their own sources or find an RPM for their distribution. Its features include Import / Export QIF files straight from Money or Quicken, autocomplete, check printing, split transactions, balance forecasts, online banking, and more.

The additional components needed to build from source are included in the source files - but this project has not been updated in years and the current iteration of Lazarus will likely not build the source anymore. That's why I stopped working on it - Lazarus and FreePascal were always moving my cheese.

souce code
I downloaded the Lazarus/free pascal source code

Upon loading the project I got error messages

stating that Lazarus could not find the following

units:

esdsound; htmlhelp;hoverbutton;mrulist

Question?

Were these not included in source tarball?

Are they available?

Re: If it doesn't run...
Hi Tony,
I recently upgraded from PCLinuxOS .93 BigDaddy to PCLinuxOS 2007 and no longer could get CheckBook Tracker to work. After reading your post I used Synaptic to search for "pixbuf". I ended up using Synaptic to add "libgdk-pixbuf2". Now cbtracker is working great again!

I also wanted to let you know the download link on your web site might be messed up. Instead of pointing to this file:
tony.maro.net/files/cb...

It directs one to this incorrect location:
tony.maro.net/ossrambl...

...which doesn't work. But maybe it's just a Firefox problem on my end. Tony, thanks for writing a great checkbook program.
I use it to do the books on our small Trucking operation. I'd be lost without it. Thanks again.

only wish is for mulitple accounts
This application is probably the closest what my dream of a simple, fast finance application with forecasting and scheduled transactions, etc... the only clincher is the single account.

Multiple accounts would seal the deal... being able to transfer between accounts on a scheduled date is the only thing I do in MS Money that this cannot do... it eats at my very heart :P

If it doesn't run...
If it doesn't run when you launch it, chances are you don't have the pixbuf libraries installed. Use your favorite package manager to install anything with "pixbuf" in the name. Normally this is libgtk-pixbuf2 or similar.

Failing that, try opening a console and run it from there. Perhaps you'll get an error message.
