How do the templates work? [PDF, PS, Latex]

How the LaTeX templates work and what is usually needed to get them up and working.

[work in progess...]
The PDF and PS invoices are generated using a program called LaTeX which handles the layout and typesetting. The actual LaTeX files are creating using Template Toolkit with extensions for LaTeX. These extensions are in the Template::Latex package available from CPAN. The software then generates a LaTeX file which is then processed to create a PDF or PS.

We are a US not-for-profit (http://riverbendmath.org/) using SQL-Ledger and LedgerSMB since 2006 (I'm not sure exactly when we made the switch). We are a small organization: ~15 part-time employees; ~$150,000 annual revenues; 2 users of the ledger. We are still using 1.2.x because my trial transition to 1.3.x did not work out as smoothly as I had hoped. Thus, I have put the transition on hold until I can give it a few days attention. As an organization we believe in and use open source software almost entirely.

How to clone database with no financial transactions?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 11/16/2011 - 18:07

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.

How to add a barcode for a part?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 11/09/2011 - 04:31

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 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?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 02:47

Yes, its open source. The tools we use (Perl, PostsgreSQL, Apache ++) are 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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source

Look for a place to contribute. This means not only programming, but also documentation, theme design, art work, or architectural design.
