I wanted  local help files so installed gimp-help and  gimp-help-en via synaptic
and updated preferences but Gimp ccould not see it..
So I went went back to on-line help and now get

Could not open 'http://docs.gimp.org/2.8/en/gimp-help.xml' for reading:
Operation not supported
Perhaps you are missing GIO backends and need to install GVFS?

removed gimp-help and  gimp-help-en but no change

So now no gimp-help either on line or local.  Not sure what went wrong ?
