kdm manpage has wrong path to README file

Bug #630971 reported by Andrey Bondarenko on 2010-09-05

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

The kdm manpage states:

              Information about kdm and its options

This statement is rather misleading as the file /usr/share/doc/kdm/README.gz does
not exists and /usr/share/doc/kdm/README contains only generic information about

The actual upstream kdm README file is at /usr/share/kde4/apps/doc/kdm/README.
I suppose either this file should be installed into /usr/share/doc/kdm/README.gz,
or reference about it should be removed from the man page.

Package version:
kdm: 4:4.4.2-0ubuntu14

description: updated
affects: kdebase-workspace (Ubuntu) → kde-workspace (Ubuntu)

Hello Andrey, or anyone else affected,

Accepted kde-workspace into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
