And the real reason for gun control is?

I'm trying to make a budget using Gnucash but I'm confused. Say I have an expense account with two sub accounts. I then estimate the budget value for the expense account from past transactions but the two sub-accounts remain with the value 0. If I then go to one of the sub-accounts and change its value, the amount in the parent account is not updated. That is, the value of the parent account is not the sum of its child accounts. Is that the intended behavior.
I'm running Gnucash v 2.6.12 on Ubuntu 16.04

I'm new to GnuCash and I'm using it for personal finance. I'm using v2.6.5 in Win10.
I created a Credit Card account and I import the data using the OFX file provided by my bank (Banco do Brasil).
My account is in Brazilian Reais (BRL) and recently I noticed that an international purchase I made in my creditcard (USD) got imported as if it were in BRL.

Looking at the banks OFX file, it shows that the purchase was in dollars.
<STMTTRN><TRNTYPE>PAYMENT</TRNTYPE>
<DTPOSTED>20160524</DTPOSTED>
<TRNAMT>-70.01</TRNAMT>
<FITID>2016052455490000000005350000000027</FITID>
<MEMO>WILLIAMS-SONOMA E-COMM 800-541-1262</MEMO>
<CURRENCY><CURRATE>3.6556</CURRATE><CURSYM>USD</CURSYM></CURRENCY>
</STMTTRN>

Shouldn't the OFX import recognize the different currencies and apply the conversion rate (3.6556)? Is it a bug in GnuCash? A malformed OFX?

Thanks

How to install GnuCash on Ubuntu

You have to check what is the name of your ubuntu version for example
14.04 is called trusty
14.10 is called utopic
15.04 is called vivid
and 15.10 is called wily
ref: → https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases


Then you replace <<utopic>> with the name of your current version.

In Terminal:

$ wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu utopic-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install gnucash

..................................................................................................................................

To remove an existing GnuCash installation in Ubuntu from terminal:

$ sudo apt-get remove gnucash

..................................................................................................................................

If you are new to Ubuntu, do not copy the $ sign.

Hi! How can I sync between my phone (Android), my tablet (Android) and my pc (Xubuntu)? I've tried to export from the tablet as QIF file but I'm unable to open it on my phone. Not yet tried on the pc. I think this could be a good program, but I hope to have the ability to sync between my devices

What is the NUM column for?

Hi +GnuCash Community!

I'm currently watching tutorials on youtube and noticed that next to the date column there is the NUM column. What is its purpose and how do you use it? Do you attribute a fixed number or even mix it with alphabet letters that will then be used over and over again or its just to count items?

Hi All!

I'm currently on the lookout for a simple personal finance software. Since I use +Ubuntu I just bumped into +GnuCash. Does anyone of you use it for this purpose and what is your experience with it? Works well? Buggy? Did it simplify your financial overview? Good reporting? Appreciate your feedback!
