My quick list of commands for getting GnuCash (plus documentation) installed on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (you’ll need to have MacPorts installed for this):
sudo port install gnucash sudo port install gnucash-docs sudo port deactivate mesa sudo port -v upgrade outdated sudo port deactivate mesa
You can read all the details about why mesa needs to be deactivated in this thread.
I decided to get all fancy and create an applescript launcher for GnuCash so that I could launch GnuCash with one click.
If you want to do it the old fashioned way, here’s how:
Open X11 and type:
…into the xterm command line to launch GnuCash.
Read the Documentation
GnuCash Docs don’t seem to work out of the box, so I suggest bookmarking this local documentation to read in the browser.
I also amended the applescript launcher to also open the documentation.
I gave the applescript launchers a fancy graphic so you could easily recognize them if you wanted to keep it in your dock. Feel free to download the zip of PSD files and make changes or do whatever you want with it.
