Yes. IBANs are very long, bank account numbers. LedgerSMB has no problems storing, retrieving and using these without any issue.
Yes. SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) requires support for very long bank account numbers (IBANs or International Bank Account Numbers). LedgerSMB can store and use these numbers without problems.
Assuming you have created a backup file using setup.pl, you can restore your database using the command:
$ pg_restore [options] your_backup.bak
It should be pointed out that it's not possible to restore a backup to a database with a different name than the one you made the backup from!
The table below lists the compatibility of LedgerSMB versions with Perl versions. Products for which support has ceased due to End-of-Life date being reached are not listed and should not be used.
In the 'setup.pl' administrative interface, there are 2 buttons:
- Backup database
- Backup roles
One creates a backup of the content of your database. The other creates a backup of the roles.
Roles are elements which are required to exist before creation of a database, and assign fine-grained access control.
When restoring, you need both files and you need to restore the roles before the database.
The answer to this question depends on what using means to you.
As a user of the web application, yes, there should be absolutely no problem using a recent (as in: no more than 2 or 3 years old) web browser in order to take advantage of all the features available.
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
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.
For real-time help try IRC - you will usually find most of the core team hanging out at irc.freenode.net / #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://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
- 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.
- 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
- 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
- Read more about IRC on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irc and install a irc client and join us.
- Read more about using Matrix (which already bridges to IRC)
- 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
- Connect to freenode network. Most clients have that already pre-configured. If not, connect to the following server:
Server: chat.freenode.net (or a server near you.)
Join the #ledgersmb channel.
- Matrix Console for Android
- Matrix Console for iOS
- Other Matrix clients and plugins (eg: plugin for Weechat)
