I'm using non-ASCII (Unicode) characters. Why can't I generate PDF output?

The short answer is that TeX doesn't know how to deal with UTF-8 (or rather non-ASCII) characters. XeTeX has been designed to work around these limitations. The easiest way to generate PDFs is to install Xe(La)TeX and use the 'xedemo' templates - these templates have been 'ported' from LaTeX to XeLaTeX.

Distribution specific install instructions listed below.

Debian / Ubuntu 

Install texlive-xetex that includes xelatex

LedgerSMB 1.3.28 released, contains security fixes

LedgerSMB 1.3.28 has been released and includes two security fixes. It is a recommended upgrade for all LedgerSMB 1.3.x users. The major fixes in this area have to do with administrative password resets being ineffective, and HTTP credentials not being cleared. These fixes are available separately to any user who needs them.

LedgerSMB 1.3.27 released, migration enhancements

LedgerSMB 1.3.27 has been released. This version includes a number of enhancements to the migration process, creating new user accounts for 1.2 users (passwords must still be set by an administrator), and a number of minor bug fixes that will improve the user experience. While this is not a drastic improvement on previous versions it is an incremental one.

Which versions do you support?

Active support

Versions 1.4 and higher are under active development and are supported by the community.

End of life

If you're looking for help on how to use EOL-ed versions, please try mailing the users mailing list. If you're looking someone to create bugfixes, please check with one of the parties providing commercial support.

Version 1.3 has been declared end-of-life on 2015-12-23. The last release in the series is 1.3.47. No further releases will be made by the community.

LedgerSMB versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 won't be maintained any further due to the fact that there are some known security issues which can't be fixed.

IRC Support

For real-time help try IRC - you will usually find most of the core team hanging out at irc.freenode.net / #ledgersmb

The IRC channel is also bridged to the Matrix Network as #ledgersmb

There are people there who range from users to developers who are willing to help. We have agreed to adopt the Ubuntu code of conduct for our community. Please read it if you plan on joining us.

Please keep in mind that the community (especially the people you may need help from) are scattered around the world and will likely be in a different timezone to you.
This means that it can sometimes take quite a few hours before someone responds.
For email lists this is not a big problem, but if you are using IRC (directly or via a matrix guest session) you will need to stay connected until someone answers otherwise we have no way to contact you :-)

If you ask for help as a signed up Matrix user, please log back in and check for a response occasionally, we will always respond as soon as someone is available.

Pasting multiple lines

We also ask that you always use a paste site when pasting more than 2-3 lines.

Paste sites include:

  • http://paste.lisp.org/
  • http://scsys.co.uk:8002/ - direct past url to #ledgersmb via irc boot
  • If you are using Matrix, pasting images and files will use a pastebin site (provided by matrix) automatically, but large blocks of text still need to be manually placed in a pastebin
Matrix vs IRC
    Pros
  • Guest Access using the vector.im web client (with limited matrix features)
  • Easy account signup via vector.im
  • Room (Channel) history, even from when you are not online.
    Cons
  • Still a few features not implemented in the Matrix => IRC bridge
    but they shouldn't affect most users
  • Inconvenient to change your NICK on the IRC side of the bridge
    You need to do this from a private chat with @appservice-irc:matrix.org
    then....
  • It is currently almost impossible to authenticate on the IRC network (you shouldn't need to)
  • At this time you shouldn't use matrix to send any commands to the IRC network that contain sensitive information as they will be visible to all users in the matrix room

We suggest you create an account as that will allow you to log back in later to see our response to your question.

All in All, matix (using the IRC bridge) is possibly a better fit for many users.

Connecting to IRC
Webclient
  • You can use a browser-based irc client to join the channel.
  • You can use a browser-based matrix client to join the channel.
    It defaults to guest access with reduced features, but it is trivial to sign up and get additional benefits like channel history and other things.
Dedicated IRC client

LedgerSMB 1.3.25 released

The LedgerSMB team is pleased to announce the release of LedgerSMB 1.3.25. With this release we mostly have focused on cosmetic changes for the software, thus reducing the sorts of user interface issues that are likely to cause minor headaches for users of the software.

There are, however, three significant issues that have been corrected in this release which make an upgrade recommended for everyone:

1: In previous versions, term of payment on sales orders and purchase orders were not properly respected.
