I'll try to answer my own question... Different versions of compilers were used to compile the program and wxWidgets. The solution seems to be to downgrade the compiler and compile the program. My compiler is gcc (GCC) 6.3.1 20170109. I'm guessing I have the right version and the program was compiled with a new version.

Therefore, I'll try compiling with my version. 

a) Did a "git clone https://github.com/moneymanagerex/moneymanagerex"
b) I'm lost

Someone help!

Tried your instructions on Manjaro without luck. I think my make environment is not set up correctly. I only have a gcc package which handles g++ compiler as well. However the configure script is looking for a g++ binary. Or so I'm guessing.

Tried using the Debian install instructions on an Arm machine. It does not not have the apt-get-repository command and I don't know how to add the ppa repository to the etc repository file.

Oh well, not the end of the world. I'm wondering if there is an equivalent open source project similar to mmex out there?

I've installed Manjaro into VM.
I can't run mmex as well.

I'm sticking with MMEX for this tax season and looking towards GnuCash(GC) as a possible replacement.

GNUCASH
I don't like the double entry system and GC forces you to account for everything. I can't just delete transfers; it will alert me. I don't like doing reconciling because I dont know what it is. However, I have the categories working in GC and most of them are standardized. It forces me to see things as expenses, liabilities and assets. I have to get used to handling loans and payoffs, transfers, cash account - i.e. ATM withdrawls etc. Maybe MMEX is a good step towards a more formal accounting system like GC. I think GC will be a better handoff to my accountant and ultimately TurboTax if I take my tax prep back. I'd go with Quicken for handling my financing but don't trust them for anything more than basic tax prep.

AUTO CATEGORIZE
Both these products need to automatically categorize like Quicken and allow the user to then make changes and customize. MMEX sees imported entries and categorizes as best it can. Better than GC.However it misses all the SAFEWAY GAS entries because each transaction has it's own code. I tired getting it to only look at the first few letters but there is no way of users controlling that.

THANKS
Thanks MMEX and the community for making a great product. I was hoping it would work on Manjaro Linux. And thanks for the great support here!

The manjaro version has been fixed. I'm on version 1.3.2, DB v. 7. Thanks Nikolay. I'm in finance heaven.
