09:53:24 <fleischergesell> How can I copy clients between companies? I use the mysqlbackend and only need this to do once.
09:56:59 *** fbond has joined #gnucash
10:10:01 <warlord> You could try just copying the table? But honestly this operation is not supported.

10:20:10 <fleischergesell> I feared you say that.
10:20:55 <fleischergesell> I do not really want to mess with all those uuid stuff that gnucash uses, but I'll try to copy them over, maybe it works.

12:20:45 <warlord> fleischergesell: unfortunately it's not designed to copy from one file to another.
12:23:36 *** bunk3m has joined #gnucash
12:27:55 <fleischergesell> Yeah, well, its not file based with mysql so I might get lucky. Will try later and get back here if it fails

12:57:25 <warlord> By "file" I really mean "Dataset".. A SQL DB is equivalent to a "file" in this case.

13:40:54 <bunk3m> Hi everyone. I'm still trying to get the currency separator correct for Canadian Dollars / CAD. Gnucash is giving me $1234,56 instead of $1234.56.
13:40:54 <bunk3m> I've tried to change the defaults in the International settings but Gnucash isn't picking it up properly. All other applications including Quicken, SeeFinance, Libreoffice, Excel etc. us the correct currency separator.
13:40:54 <bunk3m> In the FAQ it says to do the following command to customize: "defaults write -app Gnucash AppleLocale = "en_US@currency=CAD" "
13:40:57 <bunk3m> but I'm getting the following error when I run that command:
13:40:59 <bunk3m> "2011-07-20 13:34:29.426 defaults[4657:10b] Couldn't find an application named "Gnucash"; defaults unchanged"
13:41:04 <bunk3m> Gnucash is located in /Applications/Gnucash/Gnucash.
13:41:08 <bunk3m> Could someone give me an idea what I am doing wrong and how to fix the currency separator? Thank you.
13:44:36 <bunk3m> Quick update. I modified the command to say
13:44:36 <bunk3m> defaults write -app /Applications/Gnucash/Gnucash.app AppleLocale="en_US@currency=CAD"
13:44:36 <bunk3m> Now the error is:
13:44:37 <bunk3m> 2011-07-20 13:42:44.553 defaults[4877:10b]
13:44:39 <bunk3m> Rep argument is not a dictionary
13:44:41 <bunk3m> Defaults have not been changed.
13:44:45 <bunk3m> I have no idea what this is supposed to mean and would appreciate some guidance. thank you.
13:45:31 <bunk3m> Oh, I see that I forgot to tell you that I am running OSX 10.5.8 on a Mac.
13:45:32 <warlord> bunk3m: I recommend you subscribe to and ask on the gnucash-user mailing list
13:45:43 <warlord> I dont see any mac people here
13:45:58 <bunk3m> OK. Thank you. I'll try that.
13:46:50 <warlord> Why not do something like LANG=en_CA, LC_NUMERIC=en_US
13:47:04 <warlord> (I think that's the right one)
13:47:17 <warlord> Besides, I thought all of Canada used 1.000,00
14:14:51 <bunk3m> Nope. Perhaps in French speaking Canada they use 1.000,00 but in English speaking Canada we use $1,234.56
14:15:44 * warlord is trying to remember what his Bramptonite friends used..
14:16:03 <warlord> I know you used D/M dates (instead of the US M/D convention)
14:17:25 <bunk3m> warlord: I ran
14:17:25 <bunk3m> locale
14:17:25 <bunk3m> and got the following:
14:17:25 <bunk3m> LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:27 <bunk3m> LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:29 <bunk3m> LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:31 <bunk3m> LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:33 <bunk3m> LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:35 <bunk3m> LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:37 <bunk3m> LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
14:17:39 <bunk3m> LC_ALL=
14:17:43 <bunk3m> This shows LC_NUMERIC is en_US.UTF-8
14:18:46 <warlord> Yes, but... the gnucash app might rerun 'setlocale()' based on your system locale setting.
