Ubuntu: What's a recommended alternative to Quickbooks pro? [closed]


I've just installed Ubuntu to replace Windows. I can't seem to find a good alternative to Quickbooks pro to run on Ubuntu. Any help would be appreciated.


There are a variety of alternatives to QuickBooks, if you're looking for a web-based option. Or, as Jackson Doak mentioned, there is GnuCash - open source & desktop. It's a pretty robust accounting software and certainly worth exploring, if you prefer a desktop alternative to QuickBooks.

If you're open to web-based options, then have a look at Wave (completely free), Monchilla or Outright (both free/paid options). QuickBooks does have an online version available and there's Xero also.

It will depend on your accounting needs, as much as your chosen platform. I'm a certified advisor and user of QuickBooks, as well as the web-based software options I listed.

Good luck!


You could install quickbook via wine, if that's too much hassle, you could try:

  • Gnucash,
  • kmymoney and
  • moneydance

They may be what you're after, they all have got decent reviews.


For medium to Large size businesses I'd highly recommend Quasar Accounting http://linuxcanada.com/. The Business I work for is running it. We have 6 branches and they are all connected. I also give support for 3 smaller businesses (Less then 5 employees) that use Quasar. The Single user addition is free and the older versions you can even get GPL licensed source code for. To download visit ftp://linuxcanada.com/pub/Quasar/
