Hi there,

I need some help with a bug which has appeared in ubuntu-docs on some
peoples' systems which I can't reproduce.

It is

It is caused by the absence of the symbolic link at
/usr/share/gnome/help/libs. On my system the symbolic link is present:

matt at kalliope:~$ ls /usr/share/gnome/help/libs -al
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2008-09-24 08:43 /usr/share/gnome/help/libs
-> ../../ubuntu-docs/libs

The link is supplied by ubuntu-docs in the file
debian/ubuntu-docs.links in the source package.

Can anyone shed any light on why this link may be going missing on
some systems? I don't have enough knowledge of the packaging system to
debug the issue.

Thanks in advance.
