Inaccessible offline GIMP documentation

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gimp

On Hardy, I installed the gimp-help package, and GIMP automatically knew to show up the offline docs on clicking "Help". However, when upgrading to Intrepid Ibex, the GIMP also upgraded to 2.6 - but the gimp-help package is still about 2.4. It would be not a problem, thus, because the docs always lags behind the new features, and are still quite useful. But: in the new GIMP 2.6 if I click Help, and ask for the manual, I am redirected for the online version.

The offline docs does not show up anymore - even when the gimp-help package is installed.

I can also confirm this, and since not much info is needed other than has already been provided, I will mark this bug as Triaged so a developer and/or repository maintainer can handle this. Thank you for reporting it.
