I've just installed Kupfer on 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) as I'm playing with i3wm. The help dialog works fine under the standard unity install from what I can see.

To debug it further you could run it with the debug option:

    $ kupfer --debug

Then launch the help preference, I get the following line:

launched ['/usr/bin/yelp', 'ghelp:kupfer'] pid: 8888

There's a dependency on Yelp which is installed on my system. AFAIK it is a core part of the GNOME desktop dependencies.

I guess the other option is that there's something odd about the index it's looking for.
