gimp: consider not building help.
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
I have become aware that whilst the text in git pulls for gimp help renders correctly, and the pngs for navigation and for the splash logo (the mushrooms) in the index are fine, no other pngs are linked in the html from my process, although they are present in the online help.
Looking at just the 'en' help, the image of Wilber in gimp-first-steps.html does not appear, only the caption.
<div class="mediaobject"><img src="" alt="Wilber, the GIMP mascot" /><div class="caption">
Note the empty src= string.
I asked on gimp-dev a week ago (not sure if that is the right list, there is only one dev and he might be on vacation or busy with other things) https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-developer-list/2018-August/msg00008.html and have so far had no response.
The online help requires gvfs, which I have not normally built, but once it is set up the help will always be the latest version. Therefore, if not building the help recommend gvfs.
Adding the optional png progs (one needed a sed to build), or the switches --enable-network, --enable-maintainer-mode made no difference.
