Hi, Don,

I found it on synaptic just fine.  From the table containing the
software just start typing gnu cash real fast and it should jump you
to the vicinity of it.  I'm proetty sure you can use apt-get to put it
on the machine but I am not sure about the syntax.  It's either:

sudo apt-get install gnucash


sudo apt-get install gnu-cash

I am not on a linux machine right now to test it out for sure.
Synaptic should work just fine for you though.  Stable version right
now is 2.29 but they have quite a few release 2.3 candidates.  They're
aiming for the next stable release to be 2.4.  I think they're up to
2.3.39 right now in the rc versions if you are feeling brave.
Supposed to do all sorts of nifty stuff with sql.
