Is this dialog showing success or failure?


Look closer…


Wha? I’m still not sure what’s going on, and I still don’t seem to have a search index in the KDE Help Center. Sigh.

Update: htdig wasn’t installed, which it didn’t report very well. After installing I can apparently build the index, but search still fails.

Again, the error doesn’t get reported well in the UI — it just echoes the khc_htsearch.pl command line instead of explaining what went wrong:

$ khc_htsearch.pl –docbook –indexdir=/home/brion/.kde/share/apps/khelpcenter/index/ –config=kde_application_manuals –words=multi-file+search –method=and –maxnum=5 –lang=en
Can’t execute htsearch at ‘/srv/www/cgi-bin/htsearch’.

  1. Note the odd console X error messages. If I remember correctly, that’s the Wacom tablet devices which Ubuntu puts in the Xorg.conf by default for some reason.
