Description Elliot Lee 2004-05-25 11:27:03 EDT
From the gimp in FC2:

The GIMP help files are not installed
Could not open '/usr/share/gimp/2.0/help/en/gimp-help.xml'
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2004-05-25 13:43:58 EDT
Shall gimp require gimp-help, what do you think?
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2004-05-25 13:45:33 EDT
Or should gimp rather spit out a "more informative" error message?
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2004-05-25 14:09:42 EDT
Hmm, that helps explain things. I'll add gimp-help to comps in the
'Graphics' group, as a minimum. If you think it makes sense to add the
dependency, go for it (main question is whether anyone will want to
install gimp without the help).

The error message is probably about as good as it can get.
Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2004-05-25 15:27:23 EDT
Hmm, I didn't notice it was missing until the gimp-help tarballs were
announced ;-). Basically gimp doesn't need the help files for the pure
function so I'll leave the dependency out and will change the error
