GnuCash online banking setup crashes

Republished from February 15, 2015 @ 12:29 pm

I installed GnuCash on Linux Mint 17.1 and tried to setup online banking. As I stepped through the Wizard GnuCash crashed.

I chose Tools->Online Banking Setup… The AqBanking Initial Assistant pops up and select Forward and Start AqBanking Wizard then on AqBanking Setup select Create User. Upon clicking Create User it simply disappears.

When running GnuCash from the command line I got the following error:

gnucash: list1.c:59: GWEN_List1_GetCount: Assertion `l’ failed.

After some googling and some long reading, I found that two years ago the error was caused by a missing package, libaqbanking34-plugins. It was to have been made a dependancy but it seems not to have been. To solve the problem, install the package with:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libaqbanking34-plugins
