Re: Gnome2::Help example?

Okay, sorry, I figured out the issue. For future interest, I needed to
create the locale directories under the app help directory (or in this
case just the default 'C' locale). Then I fed the file argument an empty
string in the Gnome2::Help->display call. So,

<app-datadir>/gnome/help/<app-name>/C/[Mallard help files]

and then,


I don't know if this is the best way to do it, but it works for testing

Hopefully this isn't considered off-topic, but the Gnome2 bindings seem

I've been working on making a few of my programs conform to the GNOME
Human Interface Guidelines, and one step has been to implement the
Help->Contents menuitem to open up documentation in Yelp. I've been
trying to implement this with Gnome2::Help, but keep running into
problems and can't find sufficient documentation. I have made it this

use Gnome2;
Gnome2::Program->init (

..and later, a signal_connect to the proper menu item calling:

sub {

but I'm still getting errors. Now it's: 

"Unable to find help paths /opt/GLOC/gnome/help/gloc
or /usr/share/gnome/help/gloc"

I created the apparently needed gnome/help/gloc structure under my app
directory, and moved my documentation files (written in Mallard: to it, but I still get the same error. I
don't really want to put the files in /usr/share/gnome/... yet as the
program is in early development, and it seems to be looking in my own
directory anyway. Does anyone have advice or a working example? My docs
open up just fine using yelp directly, but is it a problem with using
Mallard instead of DocBook or do I just have something set up wrong?

Thanks in advance for any advice,
