    How are you trying to start the program? Are you getting any kind of error message? I believe the program should have been installed to /opt/Moneydance/, could you try running it directly from there?

    Thanks for your response. I have tried to run the program from
    'applications' , desktop and '/opt/moneydance/' without success. There
    is no error message.

    Can you try resetting your Moneydance preferences and see if that fixes the issue that you're seeing? To do this, you have to rename your config.dict file.

    If you're using Linux, it should be located at:


    Once you've found your config.dict file, close Moneydance and rename it (to something like config2.dict, for example), then open Moneydance again and it will appear as though you've just installed Moneydance for the first time, so you'll have to re-enter your license key and may have to locate and open your data set again. If you run into any problems, you can simply close Moneydance and rename the original config.dict file back to config.dict and open Moneydance again to restore your original settings.

    If that doesn't work, can you send me your errlog.txt file?

    If you're using Linux, it should be located at:
