01:30:49 <fixgnucash> Trying to get the python driven invoice importer working. I have Python compiled in but the invoice importer option doesn't show up in the menu choices. What am I doing wrong?

09:54:54 <importincoices> Has anyone here ever gotten the invoice importing as mentioned on email lists working? And if you have, are you willing to share how?

10:04:56 <warlord> importincoices: You can try emailing the author of the python code... I didn't even know you *could* use python to extend gnucash.

11:04:47 <warlord> importincoices: another question: are you sure that the bi_import module is building *and* loading at runtime?
12:02:23 <warlord> HUH! v6 stopped working on code.. I wonder what's up with that?
12:04:12 *** ErKa has quit IRC
12:15:07 <warlord> So Weird.
12:15:11 <warlord> I'll look into it later.
12:23:32 *** Jimraehl2 has quit IRC
12:30:34 <importincoices> the bi_import module is building - that I
12:31:38 <importincoices> the bi_import module is building - That I am rather sure of. I turned on some debugging and get a woot message about python. Not sure how to check "Yes, you are loading this module"
12:32:50 *** kpreid has quit IRC
12:34:41 <warlord> honestly, importincoices, i dont know. I've never tried using that module.
12:35:03 <warlord> Try sending email to Sebastian
12:40:42 <importincoices> I sent emails to firstname.lastname@example.org on the 2nd and on the 12th to Sebastian. Sebastian was helpful in getting me the flags to show that 'yes, Python was loading' but that path seems cold now.
12:41:38 <importincoices> At some point I need to either get it working or pick a different path - gnucash's lack of complexity is why I was hoping to add it to my box of tools.
12:46:30 <warlord> well, you ARE using development code..
12:46:39 <warlord> There is no 'released' importer importer
12:46:46 *** ErKa has joined #gnucash
12:48:11 <warlord> AFAICT, nothing actually loads the import module.
12:50:15 <warlord> Anyways, I must leave for the afternoon. the email list would be your best bet for answers.. and asking the authors of the mdoule
12:51:23 <warlord> importincoices: According to the commit log message:
12:51:30 <warlord> Users need to add a line in their ~/.gnucash/config.user
12:51:30 <warlord> for the module to be loaded:
12:51:30 <warlord> (gnc:module-load "gnucash/plugins/bi_import" 0)
12:51:30 <warlord> See bug #624911 for more details.
12:51:35 <warlord> Did you do that?
12:54:43 <importincoices> (gnc:module-load "gnucash/plugins/bi_import" 0) I have not added such Willl try that next

15:03:20 <DavidWatson> I'm wanting to find out how to connect to my bank (US Bank) using OFX and gnucash. I have the bank's url, routing number, and FID, and I'm using aqbanking with gnucash. I can set up the user, but not the account. Please help. Thanks,David

15:12:54 <jsled> DavidWatson: all I know is http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Setting_up_OFXDirectConnect_in_GnuCash_2
15:13:15 <jsled> and, really, that's all. I don't know anything about the contents of the page, or OFX in gnucash.
15:13:32 <jsled> good luck!
15:17:35 <DavidWatson> Thanks jsled. That's the url I'm using. I'll keep trying, and ask a more specific question when I do my next try to connect.
15:34:58 <importincoices> the line in .gnucash/config.user should look like:
15:35:31 <importincoices> load "gnucash/plugins/bi_import"
15:41:21 <importincoices> gnucash --logto=stderr --log=gnc=message output shows no bi_import in it. :-(
16:20:43 *** DavidWatson has quit IRC
16:26:21 <importincoices> cat .gnucash/config.user
16:26:21 <importincoices> (gnc:module-load "gnucash/plugins/bi_import" 0)
16:26:21 <importincoices> And thus my saga of getting invoice import in the menu comes to a close. Than you for the breadcrumbs Warlord.
16:30:28 *** jm_1 has joined #gnucash
16:31:14 <jm_1> hello everyone - I'm googling in the wrong place - can someone point me at a gnucash c api example directory where I can learn how to grab an account from a gnucash file in c - many thanks in advance
16:32:49 <jm_1> I've got the help from here http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/C_API - but it just says get the account from somewhere - how do I create a new file/account or grab an existing account from an existing file
16:41:50 <jm_1> well if you have any suggestions I'd be grateful of an email to a not so heavy email@example.com
