Where is this thingy located? Hard to fix when one can't find it.
rpm -ql gnome-panel | grep show
only renders /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-show-desktop.png as a result.

Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2004-02-23 17:30:08 UTC
Actually, the version of gnome-user-docs in FC1 doesn't contain the
docs for the show desktop applet. Those docs were first added in
gnome-user-docs 2.4.0. Moving to gnome-user-docs.

Comment 3 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-24 09:54:31 UTC
Even though there has been no upgrade of gnome-user-docs the error
message has disappeared. Yelp appears with a general page. However,
the panel does not auto hide on the showing of help.

Comment 4 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-24 09:55:44 UTC
The above should read:

... the error message has disappeared with the update of gnome-panel
to 2.4.2.

Comment 5 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-03-09 12:32:39 UTC
Although the help docs have not been updated the error message has
disappeared with the update to gnome-panel 2.4.2(-1/-3).

Closing ERRATA.
