Bug 1141343 - KDE_SESSION_VERSION not exported for KDE3 breaking /usr/bin/susehelp-khelpcenter for Apps https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1141343
Was filed earlier today regarding the F1 help (or Menu->Help->handbook) not working in KDE3 apps. The problem is stupid-simple. The KDE_SESSION_VERSION is not being exported, e.g.
Which, since opensuse ran all help path config though the package susehelp (and specifically through /usr/bin/susehelp-khelpcenter to handle path setting for KDE 3,4,5) the path is never set. So all that is needed is for the export to be added (wherever it is supposed to be done) and Presto! all help manuals begin working again.
