I tried to install KMyMoney today but the installation failed for Mac OS 10.13.1, using the following command:
$ sudo port install kmymoney4 @4.7.2_5
I believe I know why:
1. I declined to add a Java Run-Time Environment (didn't know this was required before I started)
2. I failed to install all of the XCode tools (thought I had).
I have to admit now this install was beyond my terminal skills and now want to clean out all these installs - I don't need the failed install KMyMoney, MacPorts, or XCode. I'll stick with GnuCash.
The MacPort Guide Section 2.4 suggests I request guidance here before I uninstall KMyMoney. It further suggests that I consider instead:
$ sudo port -fp uninstall installed
Q1: I presume this command will limit itself to my most recent attempted KMyMoney install. Is that correct?
Q2: Is this a better way than a full uninstall?
Q3: Regardless of the answers to the above, I have a question that really slowed me down in this effort. Kmymoney.org offered me this: 4.7.2 for your Mac on MacPorts<http://www.macports.org/ports.php?by=name&substr=kmymoney> download. I did download it but never found a way to access this file on my Mac and the "port search" found version 4.7.2_5 anyway, so what was the point of the download?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
