Bug Description

1. ALT+F2 usb-creator
2. Click on the "help" button

Yelp should show the help page of usb-creator.

Instead you will get something like : "The URI « ghelp:usb-creator » does not refer to a valid page."

I couldn't find any docbook documentation in the source. I think we should back out the help button, and then merge the help button functionality once the documentation is written for usb-creator.

ubuntu-docs also does not have help, so let's just hide the button for now.

This bug was fixed in the package usb-creator - 0.2.36

usb-creator (0.2.36) precise; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Use Python 3-compatible print functions.
  * Use "except Exception as e" syntax rather than the old-style "except
    Exception, e".
  * Use "raise Exception(value)" syntax rather than the old-style "raise
    Exception, value".
  * Use absolute imports.

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * usbcreator/frontends/gtk/ We do not have any help for
    usb-creator, so hide the Help button. (LP: #884008)
