    Python help file.

    Hi to all,

    i have created a copy of my WinXP development environment (Python/Eclipse/PyDev/Qt) on Ubuntu and things are working great!
    The only "problem" i have for now is this:
    In Windows, i can locate the Python help file at "C:\Python25\Doc\Python25.chm" and place a shortcut of this on my Desktop for convenient use.

    Where is the respective Python help file in Ubuntu so i can place a Link of it in the desktop for the same use ??

    make sure you've: apt-get install python-doc
    Then the docs are in:
    /usr/share/doc/python/html/index.html

    Here are some options I thought of (though I haven't tried some):

    + The swish-e package lets you index HTML pages among other things. It seems to be quite powerful.
    + KDE has the kchmviewer package that would let you view your Windows compressed HTML file (.chm).
    + Google when online.
    + grep the HTML directory recursively.

    Yes. You might need universe, but I found them by searching the package lists.
