No database options in Save As under Gnucash SOLVED

I have mariadb installed per the Arch page. Installed today.

To show the Save As Mysql option in Gnucash the documentation for Gnucash says to install libdbd-mysql. This works in debian based distros as I dual boot and have it working in my debian based distribution.

I have looked for the equivalent in Arch Linux both on this forum and in google without any luck. Searching for libdbd and mysql drivers for Arch.

I think there must be a simple and obvious answer but it is eluding me.

I am using Gnucash 3.4.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Bill

Re: No database options in Save As under Gnucash SOLVED

GnuCash has https://www.archlinux.org/packages/comm … i-drivers/ as an optional dependency. Just so you know, with Arch, it's always wise to carefully examine optional dependencies, since in some cases "optional" is meant in a technical way - the package does not require it to run. Not optional, as in "here's some extra features you may want to think about".

Thanks twelveeighty. Works like a charm.

I learned something new about Arch Linux today.
