Stock Market software for UBUNTU

I just bought this new software and I very much appreciate it. Its good for small investors. Get it from
Its called Portfolio Tracker for Linux.

All I needed to do was watch the prices of my current stock holdings in a quick and easy way. This software shows the prices from streaming Yahoo Quotes. I have like 10-12 stocks in my portfolio and only 1 holding 😉 Anyways I paid $19, and am not regretting it.

Here’s how to install it. First dont install any dependency package it provides in its free download. But download that package. Instead do this.

$sudo apt-get install libfinance-yahooquote-perl php5-cli

And then buy a registration key. You will receive some files you receive in your email. Download the free package, and extract it. Put the gpg file you receive in the extracted directory, and then do


and that should do it… 😉
