Maintained releases

The current stable release line is 1.7. For more information about older versions, see the FAQ item about supported releases. Versions 1.2 and older should no longer be used due to known security issues that cannot be resolved in that code base.

Controlling Starman

Useful Starman commands.
Using the perl based Starman webserver is the easiest way to run LedgerSMB locally (and quite possibly for production use as well).

## At the terminal, and from your LedgerSMB directory:
### Start Starman

starman  tools/starman.psgi

Default port is 5000.

starman -l :8080 tools/starman.psgi

Start with 8080 specified as the port.

Note: some documentation specifies the switch

--preload-app

It has been sugggested that this may give performance advantages in a production environment but isn't recommended while developing.
The manpage has more to say on this.

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

Submitted by hasorli on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 13:45

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
