I am switching from Linux Mint OS to Fedora which is RPM based. Will Moneydance work on Fedora?

    Thank you for contacting Moneydance support.

    We encourage you to download our free trial version. You can download the trial version of Moneydance from our website on this page.

    The trial version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test downloading data from your bank, and importing data from other personal finance software.
    If you decide to purchase the program at a later date you can keep all data you have entered during the trial period.

    You can find the Moneydance knowledge base here which will be useful if you're using the program for the first time. I'd be happy to provide guidance if you have any questions or need assistance getting setup.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support

    I'm a fellow user.

    I have had Moneydance running on Fedora.

    While there is a RPM kit it has been problematic so would suggest you use the sh kit instead.

    I currently have a subscription to Moneydance and have been using it for several years, my question was does Moneydance work in Fedora, an RPM based system instead of DEB? Gnucash works with Fedora, so I may just export my data to that if I cannot find a solution.

    Been using MD on fedora for over 10 years. It works fine.
    Not sure why they don't have an RPM link on the download page. But you can always find the latest preview version at this link:

    Go to the web page, select md5sums and "save as".
    Click on the moneydance_linux_amd64.rpm. It will download.
    go to the directoy with both files in it.
    # md5sum moneydance_linux_amd64.rpm
    this will generate something like this:
    "787363ea295fbb89f38fbd0d224b5773 moneydance_linux_amd64.rpm"
    verify that the big number matches what is in the md5sums file that you saved
    # grep 787363ea295fbb89f38fbd0d224b5773 md5sums
    If it matches it will say something like:
    "787363ea295fbb89f38fbd0d224b5773 *moneydance_linux_amd64.rpm"
    Next do;
    # dnf install .//moneydance_linux_amd64.rpm
    (If you are upgrading use reinstall)
