Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields


I finally figured out the KDE documentation procedure, which means I can get FDP work packaged for both GNOME and KDE. This was very important to me because I didn’t want to help perpetuate the perception that hard-core Fedorans don’t like KDE. I googled far and wide and found only the barest hints as to how to accomplish this, so I’m pretty proud of myself. (The guidance may be out there, and maybe I couldn’t find it, but that doesn’t make the accomplishment less significant to me.) ?

Basically, the procedure runs like this:

  1. Run meinproc to generate KDE-ish HTML, a KDE-ish DocBook index, and a cache for khelpcenter
  2. Place the documents somewhere inside /usr/share/doc/HTML/<lang>/
  3. Write a .desktop file for the entry and put it in /usr/share/apps/khelpcenter/plugins/ (directories should get their own .directory desktop file)
