Is anyone using quicken with Linux? I am running Ubuntu and have Wine
installed. Would like to drop Windows and stick with Linux. But I need
Quicken.

I'm running Quicken H&B 2007 under wine on Linux Mint 11 (Ubuntu 11.04).

I haven't tried any of the downloading functions, just the basic manual
entry, which works OK for me.

Whether a particular release of Quicken will work seems to be a matter
of chance...

Here are the notes I've kept for myself on installing....

=========

Use Winetricks to install
- Tahoma
- corefonts
- IE (IE6 seems to work best - IE7 may be OK - IE8 has initialization
failures)

Install Quicken

Skip the Q2007 R5 update - sometimes it fails, sometimes it works,
sometimes Quicken won't start after update

Manually edit Gnome menu to: wine "/home/<your directory
name>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Quicken/qw.exe"

=============

FWIW...

I find it Quicken works better with the open source graphics driver, and
not the NVIDIA proprietary driver (funny things happen with the menus
with the latter)

I imagine that Crossover Linux may support Q2007 out of the box - you
should look at their website if interested in taking that route

I run Quicken (and AMEOL) under a VirtualBox WinXP guest on a Linux
host. Very smooth!

When away from base, I can use the same WinXP Virtual Disk on my
laptop, similarly running VirtualBox under Linux.

VirtualBox is available as part of several Linux distributions, or can
be downloaded from their web site.

Much thanks for the replys. With this info I can get the wife off my
back and get her Quicken up and running.
