GIMP 'help'
Hi,

Just downloaded GIMP 2.6.11. Program comes up OK, when I try to go to 'Help' or 'Users Manual' I get a window that says 'The GIMP help browser is not available'

I had also downloaded and installed gimp-help-2-2.6.0-en-setup.exe (23.3mb) I thought this would be the needed help file.

I'm trying to use 'help' and the 'users manual' offline. How can I make this happen??

Thanks

RE: GIMP 'help'
gimp-help-2-2.6.0-en-setup.exe, as its name implies, is the installer for he help, did you run it?

What do you have in Edit/Preferences->"Help system"?

As ofnuts says the .exe is the help installer and you also need to select "Web browser" for the Help Browser as the "Gimp help browser" doesn't exist for Window$
