Here's a bug report I've been sitting on for a while. I've been meaningto dig in to it further but haven't had the time so I figured I shouldat least post it in case anyone else has experienced this or knows a fix.
Generating reports in gnucash cause it to die when running in thedefault i3 session.
If I run in the default GNOME session it works fine.
I believe the problem is related to not having a running GSettingsdaemon.
Below is a shortened backtrace from the gnucash process as it diedtrying to generate a balance sheet.
As you can see it dies somewhere in GIO related to settings (#3g_settings_set_property).

As a ratpoison user, I also suffered from problems caused by the lack ofa GSettings backend when not running Gnome; for example, the preferenceswould not be saved across GnuCash restarts.
To fix this, I had to manually install dbus and dconf to my profile. Theattached patch automates this by automatically propagating thosedependencies when GnuCash is installed. It would be nicer to make dbusand dconf work as regular inputs but this would require patching thesources; I haven't investigated if how feasible this would be.
Could you try the patch and see if it fixes your issues?

FYI, we have a dbus-service (maybe it didn't exist when this bug reportwas created). Please see "(guix) Desktop Services" in the Guix manual.If you set it up, does it help, or is there more work to be done to fixthis problem when running Gnucash outside of GNOME?
Note also that Gnucash has been updated since this bug report wasoriginally opened. In particular, on the current core-updates branch,we have upgraded Gnucash to 3.0. You might consider trying thatversion. However, please be careful and make backups before doing so,since there are backwards-incompatible changes going from Gnucash 2 to3. For details on the changes, see the Gnucash News posts here:
