Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2002-08-30 12:20:13 EDT
The combination of:

 gnome-libs-1.4.1.2.90-22
 dia-0.90-7

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 06:02:17 EDT
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?
