Do you remember this ancient post of mine? I have in meantime upgraded to 
KDE 3.2.2 (from download.kde.org on Debian/woody) just to find out, that 
it is still alive and kicking -- no Helps for me. Then again from pure 
feeling of dispair (you couldn't imagine how difficult it is to live 
without help documents when you've got used to them) I googled again for 
the answer and found this page -- 
http://www.webservertalk.com/archive235-2004-5-232451.html. Then I tried to 
make a symlink from all subdirectories in /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML 
(fortunately, I have just two of them there) to /usr/share/doc/HTML and 
suddenly MY HELP IS BACK!!! Thanks God!

However, nasty questions still remain:

a) How is it possible that apparently no other user of Debian/woody
   KDE 3.2.[12] happen to stumble upon this already?
b) I have in my /etc/kde3/system.kdeglobals (see attached)
   dir_html=/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML
   Why KDE ignores it?
c) I compiled a program from source (krusader, if anybody is interested,
   Debian/woody KDE 3.2.2 package is available at
   http://www.ceplovi.cz/matej/progs/debian/) and that one as the only one
   KDE application does not have Help (trying "help:krusader" in Command
   Prompt, because its menus are screwed us menus of all other KDE
   applications; but that's another story).

Thanks in advance for any reply,

	Matej

a legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or
glimpses of final victory.
