Subject description: A multi-lingual system of help documents for puppy linux
 

Available: puppy_help-1.2.pet 4mb download
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7JZA8XWblrSeUdlQnVtZGpyckk

French language help system is included to test the concept.

Here is a newly designed help system for Puppy distros.
It is compatible with the old system ---> click on desktop icon to
launch a html page full of links. However Barry's help is only intended for
one language, English. For the other languages the user must use Google translate.

So I designed a system that is more useful with a multi-language install.

Here is description of the help system:

For the English language BarryK documents in folder /usr/share/doc
are used.

For French language the folder /usr/share/doc/puppy-help-system/fr
is used to contain the documents (txt, htm , html)

For German language the folder /usr/share/doc/puppy-help-system/de
is used to contain the documents (txt, htm , html)
etc., so all the languages can be accommodated.

As little as one document is needed . It can have lots of links to the internet.

_____________________________________________________

If you are using the English language , then launch the app
from

Start menu > Personal > Puppy Help

And you will have a choice of BarryK 's info documents

_________________________________________________

In you are using French language , then launch the app

Start menu > Personal > Puppy Aide

You will now have a choice of help documents I dragged from Toutou linux.
Unfortunately many of the links won't because they are relative,
however this can be easily corrected. At bottom of window there is a button
to use the BarryK 's English documents.

_________________________________________

If you are using another language such as Spanish then the English documents are shown.

Version 1.1 upgrade


I corrected the list --> 'English_Window' was put on list accidentally.
That word is used to tell the software to run the English version,
rather than quit.

..and added two German documents so the German language can be tested with the software.

Switch your computer to the German language to test ...
