--- Comment #1 from Brendan at CoupeWare.com ---
I'm not a developer so I'm less offended by the rude way you seem to be either
asking for help or criticizing the developers. Since you claim to write code, I
assume your code is always perfect so you've never received a comment on your
code that is like your comment here.

As far as the forums that you mentioned, it's possible you have been asking for
help on forums/mailing lists that are no longer monitored. While the response
on this list is not always immediate it's usually fairly quick and very
helpful. Keep in mind the developers are volunteers and respond a lot better to
polite questions than criticism.

I have been using KMM for about 15 years and I have been using online banking
(direct connect) for most of that time. I don't recall if it was supported back
in 2005 but it has been for a long time. So if it's not working for you it's
probably the bank or a setup issue. 

Version 5.0 is a very early version of the new 5 branch and was not recommended
for daily use. There have been many updates since then and the current version
is 5.1.0. The previous version was 5.0.8.

My first suggestion is to update to one of those 2 versions. If you would like
to compile from source I have some scripts that automate the process as long as
you have the correct dependencies installed. You can search for the link or I
can share it with you if you are interested.

Once you have a recent version installed, make sure you read the manual on how
to setup online banking. Then provide the list with as much information as
possible. The more the better since someone reading the list may have dealt
with a problem at the same bank and found a workaround. Your current comment
does not mention anything useful. Did you try to map any of the accounts? If
not, it's never going to work. Where are you? Where are your banks? There are
different online banking options depending on where you are.

I have tried gnucash. As far as I could tell, you have to download one bank
account at a time. With KMM you can do them all at once. I do it every day.

If you really think a YouTube video would help new users, I suggest you create
one. I'm guessing the project would love the help. If there is a bug in the
program, the developers do there best when the bug is clearly explained and you
help test the patches. It's a community effort.

Since you mentioned Quicken, I assume you have access to a Windows computer.
You could try a recent version of KMM compiled for Windows and see if that
solves your problem. I don't use Windows and don't know where the installation
package is but I would check the KMM website. If that works then you have to
figure out how to get a more recent version on Linux.
