Python documentation search does not work

Bug #1001585 reported by Urs Fleisch on 2012-05-19
This bug affects 5 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
python2.7 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

How to reproduce:
Open in a browser: file:///usr/share/doc/python/html/search.html?q=unittest, no search results are displayed.

How to fix:
The link target /usr/share/doc/python/html/_static/underscore.js -> ../../../../javascript/underscore/jquery.js does not exist, it should point to ../../../../javascript/underscore/underscore.js. /usr/share/javascript/underscore/underscore.js is contained in package libjs-underscore, so python2.7-doc should have a dependency to that package.

Here is a patch:

Thanks for looking at this bug.

I still see this in

Is it really fixed? BTW, is there any reason for not using dh_sphinxdoc (which does all such linking automatically)?

Quick solution for precise users:
