The combination of:


fix this.

(The first gets help working for any gnome1 application, then second
fixes the dia manual to build and be included in the package.)

Comment 2 Gavin C. Flower 2004-06-23 10:02:17 UTC
A work around that works for dia 0.93 in Fedora Core 2 (as root):

cd /usr/local/share/dia
ln -s /usr/share/gnome/help/dia help

cd /usr/bin
ln -s mozilla netscape

Surely this should just work-out-of-the-box?
