Description of problem:
beginners should appreciate if you add into the "start here" window some links
to documentation: I'm thinking about gnome documentation and also redhat own
documentation, if installed. Also some videos showing the common operations in
Linux should be usefull.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It's up to the docs packages to install any such links, though I think they
already do add a documentation menu to the main menu which may be fine.
When you install the RPM packages on the Red Hat Linux Documentation CD,
a Main Menu entry called Documentation is created with a submenu listing
of available documents you have installed.
As far as GNOME docs are concerned, these can be accessed via Main Menu => Help,
which opens the Help Browser (Yelp) where users can access GNOME documentation
organized by category.
I am assigning this bug to the Documentation technical lead (tfox) for further
yes, but this rfe was about making easier for beginners to start using redhat:
i think that someone who never used redhat and is looking at the desktop will
try to click onto the "start here" icon rather than clicking on the gnome foot
icon in the lower left area.
Start here is going away in GNOME 2.8 (upstream), and FC3/RHEL4 will
not have a Start Here icon any longer. Is this still valid?
The "Start Here" Icon has been removed from the desktop for both the
community-supported Fedora Core and future versions of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. Installed Red Hat documentation and GNOME docs will
still be accessible via the Main Menu.
Thank you for your suggestion. We hope that you will continue to
suggest ways to improve our documentation and the ways to access it :)
