[Gimp-user] No Gimp-help - 2.8.22 Xubuntu 17.10

Something similar came up on another forum but concerning KDE DE. I
use kubuntu 16.04, local help gives that "not installed" message and
get that "Perhaps you are missing GIO backends and need to install
GVFS" message for online help.

Strangely, installing GVFS + its raft of dependencies also permits the
local help to work.

Do you have it installed? (Sorry no 17.10) A xubuntu 16.04 VM -
synaptic https://i.imgur.com/hZBQdy0.jpg

It is also worth checking the language setting in Edit -> Preferences.

Works here: local files open in Firefox

One last thing on installation. It is not the packages gimp-help and
gimp-help-en to install, it is gimp-help-en which pulls
gimp-help-common in as a dependency.

Still not working? I do not bother with local help and very
occasionally go straight online to gimp docs.

A useful alternative to local help is the help files as a PDF. English
version here: http://gimp.linux.it/www/meta/

rich: www.gimp-forum.net

According to Synaptic all the GVFS modules are installed.
Your option of the .pdf sounds fine
