I'm running GnuCash 2.6.19 (with AqBanking 5.7.8.0) on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.

Ever since the European Commission's Revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2) came into effect online banking with the above no longer works.

Apparently, there is a newer version of AqBanking (5.99.25beta) which supports Strong Customer Authentication. However, that new version is still in beta and apart from some mentions on https://www.aquamaniac.de/rdm/ there hardly seems to be anything written or reviewed about it. Also, it will probably take light-years until this update reaches official Ubuntu repositories :(

Now I'm aware this "question" may not (yet) be a "good" one (by the standards of StackExchange); but it's a big topic and it's kind of silly that the directive effectively "broke" my ability to feed my books and bank statements in GnuCash with data from my bank:

  • How to continue using the online banking feature of GnuCash (AqBanking) with PSD2 in effect?
  • Can anyone report that (s)he's been able to get online banking in GnuCash up and running again (after encountering hitherto unseen errors about "two-factor authentication" failing)?

  • AQfinance has released a beta that supports PSD2. Unfortunately, I do not know how to integrate them into GnuCash, so I depend on the developers. So it would be great if they could integrate the new version into Gnucash. Thank you so much! – Tobi Sep 18 at 10:16

With the new versions Gwenhywfar 4.99.16beta, AqBanking 5.99.32beta und Gnucash 3.7 it is working again.

I found the solution at the thread https://forum.ubuntuusers.de/post/9099928/

Have a look at the PPA https://launchpad.net/~ingo/+archive/ubuntu/gnucash/ which is compiled ready for ubuntu 18.04

Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) will be released in ~ 10 days time from now and it looks like it's going to include the latest version of GnuCash (3.7, as of today), cf.:

which is, however, contradicted by

We shall soon see what and who's right… If 19.10 will indeed ship with the latest version of GnuCash (and AqBanking !) then that might solve the problem :-) To be confirmed…
