Moneydance would not open under my Antergos Linux OS which recently switched to the 4.17.2 kernel.

Just an issue on my system or otherwise observed? (Normal Moneydance when opened under Manjaro Linux w 4.16 kernel)

    Sorry to hear about the problems you've encountered.

    Can you let me know whats happening when you try to open Moneydance using Antergos? Do you see any error messages or error codes?

    Could you try to open the Moneydance program again, wait a few minutes, then send me a copy of your Moneydance error logs. If the program is having a chance to write to these logs, it may help us to establish whats causing the issues.

    The logs are saved on your system as an errlog.txt file. Using Linux, the logs should be found at the following location in your Home folder:
