    Hi
    I am a totally beginner and just installed openerp on ubuntu. As per the documentation I use the minimal setup. But there is no Financial management in the menu.
    How can I get it.

    Thanks

      install accounting modules from administration => modules menu.
      or when u run a wizard after creation of db, then select financial management from given profile.
