On fresh install of Xubuntu 20.04 LTS, it was noticed that the Get Quotes button on the Price Editor option of GnuCash was greyed out.
To diagnose this, open a terminal window and enter the following commands:
The error Can’t locate Finance/Quote/Yahoo/Asia.pm in @INC is displayed.
This means that the Finance::Quotes module is not installed.
To install the module, enter the following command:
sudo cpan -i Finance::Quote <enter>
After this, check if the module has been successfully installed by entering:
The list of stock sources will be displayed. Now start GnuCash and do get quotes from
Tools -> Price Database -> Get Quotes.
The quotes will get updated.
