Description Telsa Gwynne 1999-08-19 16:06:00 UTC
This only shows up in Lynx, not Netscape. (Don't ask why I
use a text-based browser for a graphical file...)

cd /usr/doc/gimp-manual-1.0.0; lynx index2.html

Click on the 13th (appropriately enough) link down, the one
to "What is Gimp?". It won't do it. Clink on the = to get
the info, and the "Link you have currently selected" has
lots of %A0 garbage in it. This shows up as weird stuff in
joe, too.

rpm --verify gimp-manual throws up no problems, so I assume
it shipped like that. (I installed it from the CD.)

Plenty of ways to get round this (E for "edit the link" in
lynx, using netscape, or taking the garbage out of the
file..) but it would be nice to have fixed.

Sorry it's so trivial. The reason I bothered at all is
that of all the pages for a manual to lack, the "what does
this program do" introduction is probably one of the first
ones that anyone will look at.
