Personal Finances on Linux with KMyMoney

(Other stories by Eric Geier)

"How useful KMyMoney will be to you and how easy it will be to use depends on two factors: One, whether or not your bank uses a supported online banking protocol, like OFX or HBCI, which applies when using any type of money management program. Two, if you can get a set of plugins working, which includes check printing support.

"If your bank and KMyMoney are compatible, your account history and balances are automatically updated in KMyMoney. If they are incompatible for any reason, you'll be stuck with having to manually update your accounts. That isn't great if you deal with a great amount of money or transactions.

"If you can successfully install a set of plugins, you can bring check printing support into KMyMoney, among a few other features. This can also be a deciding factor for if KMyMoney is a feasible option for you. With check printing support and a stack of compatible blank check paper, you can have KMyMoney print and log all your checks. If you don't go that route, you must manually input the check details to have a balanced account."
