Description of problem:
Nautilus is installed as the panel help link on Redhat 7.2. Unfortunately
it cannot view the man or info files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click the help icon on the panel
2.Click the "Info pages" link on the help index
Actual Results: An error message:
"toc:info" is not a valid location. Please check the spelling and try again.
Expected Results: An index of available info pages
gnome-help-browser appears to work correctly
Resolved in latest gnome-core by removing toc:info from the help page for now.
In Nautilus, you can view info pagers using the Help sidebar tab.
A nicer help solution is being investigated for the future.
I am using nautilus 1.0.6-1, and I still cant use info or man pages from the
nautilus help sidebar tab (or anywhere else for that matter). If I click on an
info page in the sidebar it says
info:gzip not a valid location. Please check the spelling and try again.
Unless you can be more specific about how to fix this very important problem, I
suggest that this bug be reopened.
1.0.6 hasn't ever been released in a supported product. Someone at Sun rewrote a
bunch of the help code from 1.0.5->1.0.6, it hasn't been through any kind of QA
on Red Hat's part. The info browsing works for me in the Nautilus we shipped in 7.2.
The eventual plan to fix it is a standalone help browser, but when that will be
complete and available I can't say at this point.
