LedgerSMB 1.3.5 released

Hi all;

The LedgerSMB core team has released version 1.3.5. This is a
maintenance/bugfix release which corrects a significant number of
bugs, particularly for users of extended character sets. A number of
other i18n issues were fixed, as were some issues with sales order
generation from timecards, permissions and menu issues, and more. The
complete changelog is included below.

How to clone database with no financial transactions?

Copy db :
In psql or your sql client:
CREATE DATABASE my_newdb WITH TEMPLATE my_old_db;

Note this will clone everything.
If you want to get rid of the transactions, you will need to delete everything in the acc_trans, ar, ap, and gl tables.

Also if goods and services are used, delete from invoice and inventory as well, and if wishing to clear out all orders, delete from
orderitems and oe.

No accounts to select of GL transaction

When I open a screen to enter a GL transaction, there is no list to select accounts from. How do I know which accounts are available?

These are AJAX-completed boxes. Just wait after starting to type the account number or the beginning of the account name and a list of items to select from will pop up.

Where can I buy consulting and services?

Is there a place where we could buy some consulting for LedgerSMB?
or a minimal setup according to our specs?

Errors in apache error.log - missing "math lib's"

Short error:
Math::BigInt: couldn't load specified math lib(s), fallback to Math::BigInt::FastCalc

1.3.4 released

Hi all;

This release corrects a number of localization bugs regarding number
handling, updates some documentation, fixes one minor database
creation/upgrade bug, and more. Because it involves a few database
changes, it does require running the setup.pl against each database.

Best Wishes,

How to add a barcode for a part?

Sql ledger has the option to add a barcode to a part.

In 1.4, you will be able to add a barcode per make/model record.

How are barcodes added when using LedgerSMB?

Sort term solution:
It's not optimal for a UPC management but it solves the immediate problem:

Add a space separated list with the barcodes to the partnumber field

The partnumber is the "Number" filed on the same line as "Description" in the "Add Part" page.
And yes, "space separated list" works in the POS interface. (If you scan one of the codes in the space separated list )

Does LedgerSMB use complex templating languages such as XSSSL?

No: Our templates are in LaTeX or HTML (your choice), and use TemplateToolkit for variable interpolation. No xslt, no xsssl, no programming language other than TT directives......

Does LedgerSMB support my country's laws?

We don't know enough about the ideosyncracies with your laws to evaluate that. But quite frankly Free Software sometimes poses an issue with local regulation. If you go with LedgerSMB, I'd recommend working with us to detail any shortcomings and get those resolved.

You can help us to make a list over "X country" laws and LedgerSMB shortcomings according your countrys law.

Is LedgersSMB free software?

Yes, its Open source. The tools we use (Perl, PostsgreSQL, Apache ++) is also Open source.
Open source means that the source code of the software is available for free to everyone and you can modify the code and distribute it yourself. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source
