Installing Skrooge

The recommended way is to install Skrooge using your distribution's package management tool. However, Skrooge being a quite young application, it is possible that it is not yet available in repositories. You should of course bug the distro's packagers to include it, but in the mean time you can compile and install skrooge yourself, it is not that difficult !

Importing existing data

If you are a user of other personal finances managers, you may import your existing data from these, using one of the following formats :

Discussion was also started with the KMyMoney team for a more efficient way to exchange files between these two KDE applications.

Getting Help

  • Documentation: in case the Skrooge Handbook is not installed on your machine, you can browse it online.
  • Forum: you may also seek assistance in the KDE forums, in the Office & Productivity section.
  • IRC: skrooge developpers try to hang in the #skrooge channel. Some users may also help in #kde.
