Notes about the distributions

  • A message regarding a compatibility problem with the Banana installation package will appear.
    Just continue with the installation. This message has no influence at all on the correct functioning of Banana.

  • If the format of dates or amounts is wrong, add the following line to the file ~/.profile
    export LANG=de_CH.UTF8
