  Running GIMP 2.6.7 on 32-bit Gentoo linux

  I know about RTFM, but clicking on "Help" is futile.
Step 1) I get an error box that says...
> help Messge
> Could not open 'http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/gimp-help.xml'
> for reading: Operation not supported

> Perhaps you are missing GIO backends and need to install GVFS

  What is it talking about?

Step 2) I open up that URL with Firefox 3.0.14 and I get a bunch of
gibberish like,,,

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated
with it. The document tree is shown below.

<gimp-help>
<help-item id="gimp-main" ref="index.html" title="GNU Image Manipulation Program" parent=""/>
<help-item id="preface" ref="preface.html" title="Preface" parent="gimp-main"/>
<help-item id="gimp-team" ref="preface.html#gimp-team" title="1. GIMP User Manual Authors and Contributors" parent="preface"/>

<help-item id="introduction" ref="introduction.html" title="1. Introduction" parent="getting-started"/>
<help-item id="introduction-gimp" ref="introduction.html#introduction-gimp" title="1. Welcome to GIMP" parent="introduction"/>

etc, etc, etc.  What am I missing?

I'm using Mepis (Debian) and my build is the same. Somewhere the url has 
changed and the gimp source has not kept up with the change.

If you back off one layer to http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/ in the browser 
then it works.

You might want to look at installing local help. The Debian gimp help is 
still trapped at gimp 2.4. As a fix I installed the 2.4 help then 
manually replaced the html + associated files with the 2.6 versions. 
A couple of ways to get the 2.6 help files, 1) use wget 2) use a windows 
machine install gimp then install help. Copy the help files to the linux 
folder, AFAIK its html and not OS specific.

A couple of screen shots that might/might-not be useful.

Happy new year.

A quick search and I think gimp 2.6 help is available for gentoo

http://packages.gentoo.org/package/app-doc/gimp-help

  Thanks.  That works for me too.

  Thanks again.  The weird part is that I did enable the "doc" flag for
building gimp, which should pull in stuff like this.  I'll check on the
Gentoo mailing list whether this is working as designed.
