Description George Geller 2005-03-21 14:08:52 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

Description of problem:
It looks like the man pages intalled with gimp have somewhat unusual names:

$ rpm -ql gimp | grep /usr/share/man

So you have to say:
$ man gimp-2.2

Instead of just:
$ man gimp

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gimp.
2. Do:
$ man gimp # it doesn't work
3. Do:
$ man gimp-2.2 # it works

Additional info:

I fixed it on my system with a few commands like:

$ ln -s /usr/share/man/man1/gimp-2.2.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/gimp.1.gz

I think this needs to be part of the rpm's post install script of the man pages need to be named according to the standard in the first place.

Fixed in gimp-2.2.4-5.
