Description of problem:
The kde help applet doesn't allow the htdig search tab to be available. It
was working in the 7.1 release. But after upgrading the tab simply doesn't
appear. A new installation also fails. Removing and re-installing htdig
from the release doesn't help either. I haven't tried installing the
latest kde release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install 7.2 distribution with kde.
2.Open the help center try to access search tab.
Actual Results: search tab not available.
Expected Results: Search tab should automatically be present if htdig is
Works for me...
Are you sure you installed htdig?
This is kdelibs-2.2-11, kdebase-2.2-12, correct?
The rpm query ala grpm and verify all show that htdig are installed. I removed
and re-installed by but still no success. I installed the kdelibs 2.2-11 and
kdebase 2.2-12 from the cdrom that was not successful. I also tried installing
the kde release for kde.org. versions kdebase 2.2.1-1 and kdelib 2.2.1-1 that
didn't help either although it fixed a kpackage problem.
The htdig database does not exist after initial installation. I ran htdig and
it created empty databases. I don't know how what to give the htdig as starting
URL to compile the database directly. I'm not sure how this affects the
helpcenter not offering a search tab. Also there is no help button or url,
config options. I can't remember if they used to be there.
This may be a KDE problem, last night I load Mandrake 8.1 on another computor
and it has the same problem.
I just found a bug report on kde.org. It said that the search tab wasn't in the
2.2 versions because htdig was not compatable with the new help systems. It did
not say if or when a search function will be added.
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.
Closing as "CURRENTRELEASE" for now.
