Some say yes:
Some say no:

One thing's for sure:  Your system's package-tracking software (apt-get
and friends) won't know it's there, and can't check its dependencies,
which I assume include some version of Sun's Java Runtime Environment 
(JRE) for Linux.  Since Moneydance would thus remain outside your
package regime, you have to take care of any upgrade needs, or breakage
caused by other things getting upgraded.  (Normally, that's not a big
problem; I'm just being thorough.)

Gnucash, KMyMoney, Kapital[1].  (If you don't see them listed in
available packages, they might be in the universe or multiverse
collections.)  More options here:

If you want to try one thing first, try Gnucash.

[1] Kapital is proprietary, like just about everything from TheKompany:
