    Default KMyMoney documentation?


    I installed KMyMoney 0.8.9 from the openSUSE 11.0 downladed DVD using
    YaST. The problem is that no help files were installed so I can't learn
    to use it.

    I'm new to openSUSE so I probably did something wrong. How do I get the
    Help files installed?

    In searching this forum, I found a post that indicated no help files
    were a "feature", not a bug, because programmers hate writing them.
    Surely (and hopefully) they jest.

    Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Cordially,
    TwoHoot

    Thank you for the link.

    KMyMoney seems to have a pretty good manual in .pdf format on their
    website. It indicates that the "Help" button should work. Mine doesn't.

    Is there some trick to installing the help files or should they be
    included automatically?

    Cordially,
    TwoHoot

    You can get 0.9 for openSUSE and that certainly has the documentation
    available from Help. One possibility: all the KDE documentation relies
    on having Beagle running and the KDE Help indexed. Have you switched off
    Beagle or never indexed the KDE Help?

    In the past I had troubles where the help files were placed when I
    installed using the source files. Maybe you could check where yours are
    located. Mine are at


    Code:
    --------------------
    /opt/kde3/share/doc/HTML/en/kmymoney2
    --------------------


    If yours are not located there, that's most likely your problem and I'd
    say that what you installed wasn't configured correctly when it was
    compiled.

    You could try to subscribe to the kmymoney mailing list and ask there
    how to correct it. The developers are active there and pretty good with
    giving help.

    Do you the link? I'm probably missing the obvious but I can't find the
    pdf version - just hte online manual.

    Thanks...

    Thank everyone for the help. I was running the downloaded version of
    openSUSE 11.0 with KDE 4. I had done a lot of "toying" with it and
    probably brought the help file problems on myself.

    When the boxed DVD came, I blasted all the partitions and made a clean
    install using KDE3.5. KMyMoney installed easily and the help files were
    available with no problem.

    Two Differences between the first installation and the second:
    1) KDE 3.5 instead of 4
    2) Beagle was not running (i think i turned it off and didn't know how
    to get it back) in the first and is in the second.

    The .pdf help file link is
    http://kmymoney2.sourceforge.net/kmymoney-user.pdf

    I can't say enough good things about openSUSE 11.

    Cordially,
    TwoHoot

    I'm on 10.3. Planning on installing 11.1 in a couple days when it goes
    gold-master. KDE 4 may take some getting used to though. <g>
