Hi

I've installed Gufw as a means of configuring Ufw.
When I click "Help" I get the message: "Help not found".

Have I omitted to install something? What am I missing -- or -- is there a handbook/help reference for Gufw somewhere?

Thanks

Bump -- Anyone know anything about Gufw?

Thanks -- done that of course. Looking for the help files pkg, but maybe there isn't one.

You asked if there was a handbook or help/reference anywhere. I have answered your question.

My bad -- I was pretty ambiguous.

Here's another question: how can I add the help files into the Ubuntu installation so that when I click "Help" on the top bar of Gufw, the advertised Gufw help files open for viewing?

I just installed the Hardy version and under the "Help" menu I only have the option for "About". Can I get a screenshot of your version please - if it's not Hardy?

Hi

Here's a shot of the Gufw GUI: http://ubuntu.swerdna.org/forumpics/gufw2.png

Here's a shot of the "Help" and "About" menu: http://ubuntu.swerdna.org/forumpics/gufw1.png

Here's a shot of the "About" screen/panel: http://ubuntu.swerdna.org/forumpics/gufw3.png

AS you can see from this snippet: http://ubuntu.swerdna.org/ubulanprimer.html#firewall, I have managed to manipulate ufw and Gufw, but I'm keen to get the installation of Gufw "correct" (i.e. including the help files) so I can proceed further with confidence.

Thanks

Sorry for not replying sooner - I had to work from 4p - 8:30p. Hmm...I don't have the option for "Help" in my Help drop-down menu. Other than that mine looks the same.

OK thanks -- I might see if anyone else answers and if not -- maybe file a bug report.
