Description Michal Jaegermann 2003-01-26 01:55:48 UTC
Description of problem:

An attempt to "Browse Documentation" in ImageMagick "Help" menu brings
first "Unable ..." alert and after that _always_ Netscape, regardles of
any other configurations, with a bad URL and "404 Not Found" error.
This "missing" documentation is actually available on local disk in two

Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: QuickStart.txt
Only in /usr/share/doc/ImageMagick- README.txt
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: colors.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: delegates.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: magic.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: modules.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: type-ghostscript.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: type-solaris.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: type-windows.mgk
Only in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick: type.mgk
Only in /usr/share/doc/ImageMagick- COPYING

There are no problems with browsing documents on a disk once one
knows that they are there although some internal cross-references are
broken.  For example, from
one is sent to
