TDE User Guide Options

From: Darrell Anderson <humanreadable@...>

Many of us who have used KDE3/TDE for many years probably have forgotten that in the T-Menu is an option named Help. The kdehelpcenter starts when selecting that menu option. The second link in the help center table of contents is to the KDE3 User's Guide, which I am updating to become the Trinity User's Guide.

I propose we include a new T-Menu option just above or below the Help option with a direct link to the TDE User's Guide.

To computer savvy users this new menu option might seem redundant, but the new menu option would prove useful to new users.

Rather than "hard-coding" the new menu option like the Help menu, this new menu option could be an optional menu in the Panel configuration. The default Trinity desktop would have that menu option enabled.

Are there any objections to this proposal?

A second proposal is the default Trinity desktop includes an icon that is a direct link to the User's Guide.

This could be a special "device icon" much like "My Documents," "Printers," or "Trash" that allows users to control the appearance, but the default Trinity desktop would display that icon, just like the other special device icons.

Are there any objections to this proposal?
