Accounting on Ubuntu


Ubuntu offers a wide range of accounting and finance applications for personal or business use.


PostBooks is a full business ERP system that can run on a standalone PC, on a network or on the web. If you only use the Qt-based GUI desktop interface, then the only server component required is an installation of the PostgreSQL package. There is also a web and mobile web xTuple ERP solution which requires a full web server and Node.JS setup but it can share the same PostgreSQL schema that is used for the desktop GUI.
