Title: Accessing PDFs from within the help centers

openSUSE-11.2: Rejected by Juergen Weigert (jnweiger)
reject date: 2009-10-12 18:13:25
reject reason: too late for 11.2
Requester: Mandatory
Projectmanager: Desirable

Requested by: Karl Eichwalder (keichwa)
Partner organization:

Make PDFs available from within the help centers. For yelp something
along these lines works:
/usr/share/help/opensuse-startup-pdf_en.document :
Name=PDF of the openSUSE Startup Guide (en)
Name[en]=PDF of the openSUSE Startup Guide (en)

Business case (Partner benefit): User will find documentation...

Karl, could you please explain what the benefit would be and for whom?

openSUSE: ATM, If the user installs the PDF, he must check the file
list using YaST or "rpm -ql", if he wants to open the PDF with a PDF
viewer. With .document files, the user will see the PDF in the help
center (yelp); clicking on the title of a PDF file automatically starts
the default PDF viewer.
SLED: ATM, the SLED admin who installs the PDFs, must tell the desktop
user where he can find the PDFs.
SLES: It probably does not matter that much.
Todo. Find out how all this works with khelpcenter.

for khelpcenter it should be sufficient to have a .desktop with
Help=file:/..*pdf, but it's been a while since I looked :)

+ #5: Karl Eichwalder (keichwa) (2014-03-04 09:50:13)
+ Thanks for the reminder.
+ We now have .page files for yelp to make the HTML output accessible;
+ ATM, there is a small bug, though: bnc#866668 (nice number!). PDFs will
+ not be accessible from yelp/
