Filter Using "Not Reconciled" #464
New user. Only about 2 months worth of data, and the second time reconciling. I have two simple accounts. A credit card and a checking/debit card. I have been adding in different transaction for the past couple weeks.
I have my bank statement for the checking account and went to reconcile. When selecting "not reconciled" from the filter bar, I get a pop-up with the message above. Looks similar to #393, but occurs in a different script.
This now occurs every time I select not-reconciled from any of the Transactions tab or either of the two account tabs I set up. It does not matter if I have one, two or all three tabs open.
@ChiSoftwareGuy I'm having some troubles reproducing the bug, and I would have further questions:
Yes. It still occurs after shutting down and restarting. I have started it several times, saved the file before the crash occurs. But anytime I select the not reconciled option, the message pops up.
I have not been using this very long, so I have not really had a need to modify the date range option, that I know of. I believe I am using the default. Just under the menu bar, the date range shows as Jan 2016 - Dec 2016.
The way I have been using the application so far, is, every couple days or so, I would go in and put amounts for the two different accounts. For example, my son take Uber quite often. I get email receipts for those rides. I would go into the credit card account, click the + at the bottom of the page. Put in the proper date and tab over to the Decrease column and enter the amount, then hit Enter.
I have had no issues with entering the different items for the accounts.
Yesterday, I took my bank statement and then selected the Not-Reconciled option under the tab bar. Immediately that message popped up. I exited and restarted. As soon as I selected the same not reconciled option, the message came up.
I tried closing any of the tabs I was not using, to see if that made a difference, but, as of yet, it has not.
I am rather new to Ubuntu. I found your monyGuru app, as I was writing a goofy script to scour all my drives on my different computers to consolidate my photos and using your dupeGuru to remove the duplicates.
I don't know if a bit of history would be of use:
I thought I would gather some more details for you. I went in to change the data Range option. I went to View -> Date Range -> Custom. I changed the Start: to 06/01/2016 and the End: to 07/03/2016 and Under the name: I called it Custom 1. When I selected OK, the same message documented popped up. I then exited moneyGuru and restarted. When I restarted, the date range was set to the custom range I had just set, even though I exited without saving.
It's not always I can make it fail, however, using a number of different date ranges (I got curious from your suggestion) it will fail at some point as I go down the different filter options. Sometime not-reconciled will work, but then I go and select All or another option and the message may pop up.
Is it possible that my .moneyguru file is corrupt?
I did not mean for this to cause you any grief. I am a very new user and perhaps I have done something incorrect and damaged my configuration or data.
Here is another update, that will probably now make this impossible to reproduce...
I realize, that i have been doing things quite differently, depending on what I am doing and where I am,
I have this app installed on an old Dell Latitude E6410 laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial). When I login to the laptop directly I use the Unity Desktop. This is where I was noticing all the pop up messages stated.
However, a lot of time I access this laptop from my work laptop which runs Windows 7. I use the basic MobaXterm Xserver and use AwesonWM as the Desktop from there. I noticed today, when running from the Windows laptop through AwesomeWM, that this issue does not occur.
This issue only seems to occur when I am running directly on the Dell laptop with Xenial 16.04 install and using the Unity Desktop.
So, sorry for all the random back and forth and changing of environments. I am content to use moneyGuru through AwesomeWM. I have a bot more flexibility this way.
Thanks again for the extensive testing. Don't worry about annoying me, thorough testing from a user is always much appreciated. Some type of bugs are very hard to catch without this kind of testing, so I'm happy to have a chance to catch such a bug.
Xenial seems to be a good lead, I'll do more testing there.
Another question: does the bug occur only with "Not Reconciled" or does it also happen with other filters (Reconciled, Income, Expense, etc.)?
I have reproduced the issue on Ubuntu 16.04. It's rather easy to reproduce. Here's what I did:
I'll investigate further when I have a little more time. Thanks again for the heads up @ChiSoftwareGuy
