Bug Description

I am using trusty.

I tried opening the application help using the F1 key. The help won't open, because yelp is missing.

I guess "yelp" should be a package dependency for gnumeric, then...

I get the same message but looking more on packages.ubuntu.com. One thing is the package gnumeric doc which has yelp as depency is listed as a recomend but not installed in lubuntu by defualt. I am seeing after a new install in lubuntu and to install gnumeric. Also to install gnumeric-doc will take 48 more megabytes of space which would increase the size of the iso which for lubuntu is intended to fit on a cd so needs to be under 700 mb. I could get yelp to launch with sudo apt-get install gnumeric-doc.

Running a testdrive for Lubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Gnumeric did not pass as I too have experienced the error when pressing F1 for the help menu and received the message:
"Unable to start the help browser (yelp).
The system error message is:

Failed to execute child process "yelp" (No such file or directory) "
