I like to use Quanta Plus to develop websites or writing PHP application.
One of the feature that I like the most is the documentation sidebar but unfortunately is not working on the last Ubuntu/Kubuntu distribution, there is something wrong in the packaging that leave broken links around.
A bug as been already reported at
but while we are waiting for the new packages we can install the documentation manually. Here's how I did it.
First of all we need to download the documentation from the Quanta Plus download page.
Here's the files that we need, download them in a convenient place, for simplicity I supposed they are at /tmp directory
Now open a terminal windows and login as root user, I usually do this with the command:
$ sudo su -
Change to the Quanta Plus documentation directory
# cd /usr/share/apps/quanta/doc
With a ls -l command you should see the following broken links:
- css -> ../../../doc/wdg-html-reference/reference/css
- docbook -> ../../../doc/docbook-defguide/html
- html -> ../../../doc/wdg-html-reference/reference/html40
- php -> ../../../doc/php-doc/html
You can just delete or rename them, as you prefer, the important is that they shouldn't be here.
Change to /tmp directory, untar the downloaded files and run install.sh script, again for simplicity I just show you one package, for the others you can do it in the same way.
# cd /tmp
# tar -xvjf html.tar.bz2
# cd html
Last check to see if package was install properly
# ls /usr/share/apps/quanta/doc
Now open Quanta Plus and you should be able to read the documetation.
