poppler docs don't show up in devhelp

Bug #226677 reported by Gian Mario Tagliaretti
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
poppler (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

Binary package hint: libpoppler-glib-dev

Ubuntu 8.04
  Installed: 0.6.4-1ubuntu1
  Candidate: 0.6.4-1ubuntu1

The link pointing from /usr/share/gtk-doc/html to /usr/share/doc/libpoppler-glib-dev/html is wrong, there is a poppler directory in there so the path ends to be /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/poppler/poppler/ and the docs don't show up in devhelp.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 2008-04-27 18:36 poppler -> ../../doc/libpoppler-glib-dev/html

gianmt@urano:/usr/share/doc/libpoppler-glib-dev/html$ ls

so it ends up like this:


one "poppler" dir too much.

This bug was fixed in the package poppler - 0.8.6-1

poppler (0.8.6-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/poppler symlink to point at
    /usr/share/doc/libpoppler-glib-dev/html/poppler instead of
    /usr/share/doc/libpoppler-glib-dev/html; LP: #226677.
  * New upstream stable release; bug fixes, no API change.
  * New patch, 60_manpages-cfg-flag, drop unimplemented -cfg flag from man
    pages; FreeDesktop #17222; closes: #461961.
  * Rename patch 001_jpxstream_int_crash to 10_jpxstream_int_crash as we don't
    have that many patches; also add upstream bug id (FreeDesktop #5667) and
    refresh to apply cleanly.
  * Build-dep on pkg-config >= 0.18 to make sure -lpoppler is only in
    poppler-qt's Libs.private (it already is though); closes: #360595.
