Wrong set of documentation for LibreCAD on Ubuntu

R. van Twisk

Gents,

today somebody notified me on the IRC channel that the documentation =
doesn't work for LibreCAD

During complication of LibreCAD the documentation also get's compiled =
into
help files that qt4-help can read. The following files are the only two =
files
needed and are currently compiled. Essentially the unix directory is the =
only
stuff you would need.

These are the documentation files:
1) LibreCADdoc.qch
2) LibreCADdoc.qhc


The following global directories will be scanned to search for the
documentation:

/usr/share/librecad/doc
/usr/share/doc/librecad/doc

I did notice that on ubuntu the directory is /usr/share/doc/librecad-doc
this looks a bit odd to me because no other package I currently have =
installed
does it like that (adding -doc to the package name).=20
Would any of the above directories work, or should I add something else =
to the=20
search patch, or may be it's better to leave this up to the package =
build system for ubuntu?

This is a bug on our end. Those files should be installed into:
/usr/share/doc/librecad/doc

the -doc is automatically added on automatically, but can easily be overridden.

@Lisandro: Would you be able to do a quick upload that fixes the
librecad-doc.docs files to install those files into
/usr/share/doc/librecad/doc?

The current ubuntu package has this bug and also has the old icons.
After lisandro's upload I'll manually upload to the ubuntu PPA to fix
those two bugs.
