03:45:35 <strk> what would the reason be for "finish" being disabled in the reconcile window ?
03:46:34 <strk> I don't have a paper statemt, but I'm using the web interface of the bank
03:46:48 <strk> experimenting with "reconcile" to keep trac of when I last verified things
03:47:17 <strk> now I have 5 items which are not marked as "reconciled" yet (from last looking at it)
03:49:38 <strk> ah, got it
03:49:46 <strk> I have to manually enter the "final balance"...

07:29:11 <warlord> strk: yeah, finish wont be enabled unless you're balanced, so yes, you need to enter the correct ending balance for the ending reconcile date.

10:31:56 <marc_kobs> i will wait all the day lol :)
10:37:39 <jsled> marc_kobs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraguayan_guaran%C3%AD ? It should be in the list, no?

11:13:37 *** jamie has joined #gnucash
11:14:54 <jamie> i'm playing with the python bindings which are really useful. I'm wondering: is there a way to search for a customer by name (I see how to search by guid)?
11:28:23 *** warlord-afk is now known as warlord
11:29:56 <warlord> jamie: probably through the Search (Query) functionality. I dont know if there is a direct "lookup_by_name"
11:32:08 <jamie> warlord: thanks. any examples of that in any of these scripts:
11:32:21 <jamie> http://svn.gnucash.org/trac/browser/gnucash/trunk/src/optional/python-bindings/example_scripts
11:44:53 <warlord> No clue. I've never touched the python bindings
11:54:22 <jamie> i think i can use python to parse the xml file - i won't be writing directly to the xml file, just reading from it.
11:57:07 <warlord> the python bindings let you read any format gnucash file.
11:57:59 <jamie> is there some kind of generic dom I can load and parse?
11:58:21 <warlord> no.
11:58:29 <warlord> i would recommend you read the data through the API
12:00:00 <jamie> i guess i'm looking for a function in the python bindings that lets me iterate over all customers
12:00:13 <jamie> to search for one with a given name.
12:01:18 <jamie> is that what you mean by read the data through the API?
12:01:19 *** kpreid has joined #gnucash
12:03:30 *** ottoshmidt has joined #gnucash
12:04:58 <warlord> yes
12:05:24 <warlord> I'm not familiar with the specifics of the API.
12:06:00 <warlord> As for iterating all customers, well, why can't you just build a query to search for the customer(s) you want? I don't know what direct lookup functions exist.
12:06:01 <jsled> jamie: my quick first-time reading of the python api, it doesn't appear to have a lookup_customer_by_name
12:06:49 <jamie> i can't seem to find any generic querying functions either
12:09:15 <warlord> jamie: you might try asking on the gnucash-devel mailing list.
12:10:22 <jamie> ok -thanks :)
12:11:20 *** kpreid has quit IRC
12:14:41 <warlord> At least there you'll likely catch the eye of someone actually *using* the bindings and they can try to help you.
12:15:00 <warlord> Or, if nothing else, they could expand the bindings to help you.

14:50:58 *** SmartWish has joined #gnucash
14:52:07 <SmartWish> I installed my gnucash on windows, but I can't seem to find out how to change the language... I'm going to change it to Norwegian Bokmaal if you wonder.
14:56:56 <warlord> SmartWish: It primarily uses your system locale.
14:57:13 <warlord> Otherwise, you can adjust the gnucash environment.txt file
14:57:46 <warlord> Er, it's not .txt
15:25:04 <SmartWish> warlord: I tried to change it but nothing happened..
15:26:55 *** bluenemo has quit IRC
15:29:39 *** bluenemo has joined #gnucash
15:31:25 <warlord> How did you change it?
15:38:56 *** bluenemo has quit IRC
16:25:24 <SmartWish> warlord: It was commented out :L
16:34:38 <warlord> Oh, well, that would do it...
16:55:35 <kimmo> nynorsk?
