Help with the Help-System
Over the years i did many things with GIMP
its excellent, but i never ever accomplished one thing, cause i gave up trying

GIMP should have an OFFLINE help system installed ...

I saw the tar.gz-archive i downloaded it, i was able to unzip it into a folder using a compression/decompression utility. .. and ...

basically this is where the trouble starts.

for me, as a Windows User i don not have that much insight into the linux filesystem and the ways linux does its voodoo along with installing something.

I just have the installed version on my hdd and the unzipped folder in the download folder and cannot find any clue where to put these files, to make GIMP recognize them as a proper installed help-system.

so the question remains:

how can i install the helpsystem for GIMP on a Windows machine ?

RE: Help with the Help-System
Do you still need help with installing the local/offline version of help on your Gimp?

If so googling found this thread if you can tred through the issue posts it might work.
