Summary0003156: Kdenlive fail to start documentation in KHelpCenter
DescriptionSelecting Help and then kdenlive Handbook opens the KDE help center with a documentation not found page. On investigation, it appears that /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/*/kdenlive/index.docbook.gz should be in an unzipped form. (index.docbook).

sudo gunzip index.docbook.gz fixes this on my system.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start Kdenlive
2. Click "Help" -> "Docbook"

KHelpCenter will show a "404 Not Found" error message.
Additional InformationThis bug has been reported in Launchpad.

Sorry, but the reproduction step 2 should be "Help" -> "Kdenlive Handbook"

does the package from ppa have the same problem?
I believe that ubuntu official package comes from debian, I don't know if lp bugs are forwarded to them in this case

Found this bug in Linuxmint17 which loads version: 0.9.10-0ubuntu0~sunab~trusty1

Searched and found this bug report.
I installed Platform Version 4.13.3 from the ppa and reproduced the problem there.

by the way, the error page comes up

Documentation not Found
Jack Ostroff <>
Revision KDE 4.5 (2010-09-21)

and goes on to say

If you have done that, but still get this page displayed instead of the application handbook, you probably found a bug in the KDE help system. In this case, please report this on the KDE Bug Tracker.

I went to the KDE Bug Tracker but could not find kdenlive on that site.

This seems is a packaging issue; as Ubuntu (+PPA) packages are based on Debian's I forwarded the report to them,

debian/ubuntu package 0.9.10-2 fixes the problem
