Some users may not receive these emails:

    - Either the email address you provided is wrong.

First check the spam box or junk mail, and as a last resort contact support.

Note : On average, the keys are sent within 24 hours, usually every morning, and the omissions are almost non-existent.

When make a bakcup ?

Accounts and Budget automatically backs up the data you enter locally on your disk. But to prevent computer mishaps (hard disk failures, viruses, bad handling ...) it is in your interest to make a backup copy of your data. To do this, simply use the function provided for this purpose via "Data Tools" + "security copy" from the home page.
The frequency of the backup copies depends on the importance of the latter, if you are an individual once a month is more than enough, if you are a professional then once a week is a minimum.
Be aware that the software also performs duplicate data in addition to the current backup, called system backup, which you can restore at any time.

How to install the software on LINUX ?

Software compatible with DEBIAN distributions (UBUNTU, LUBUNTU ...)

Software Installation:
3 possibilities:
1. Request the installation of the software via the Internet browser if proposed.
2. Open the .deb file from the file explorer once downloaded. Then click on "Install".
3. Via Terminal with the command line: Command: sudo dpkg -i accounts-and-budget.deb (from the folder where the .deb file is located)

Problems when starting the software:
If the program does not start it's probably because of a problem related to Runtimes JAVA (jre)
Accounts and Budget requires the Oracle JRE (the latter is built into the installation package)

The presence of the JRE of OpenJDK can disrupt the startup of the software. We have to make sure it's good
the Oracle JRE that is invoked to start the software.

Perform a test via the terminal and try to start using the default JAVA Command: java -jar accounts-and-budget.jar (from the folder where Accounts and Budget is located)

In case of malfunction do not hesitate to contact the support.
