Description Michal Jaegermann 2003-01-26 01:29:29 UTC
Description of problem:

In ImageMagick actions panel clicking on "Browse Documentation" brings on
always "Unable to browse" (or something like that) alert which is
followed, but only if a machine is connected to a network and if browser
works, with a browser displaying
Actually all required documentation, likely corresponding to a version
in user while is already waaay ahead, is already
installed on a hard disk _twice_!  Once in /usr/share/ImageMagick/
and the second time (these are not links but separate files) in

Here are ALL differences between these two directories:

Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: colors.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: Copyright.txt
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: delegates.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: magic.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: modules.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: QuickStart.txt
Only in .: README.txt
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: type-ghostscript.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: type.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: type-solaris.mgk
Only in /usr/share/ImageMagick/: type-windows.mgk
Only in ./www/Magick++: COPYING

So one wonders why after all this trouble not to check for a documentation
on a local disk first instead of displaying "Unable ..."?
