Description Alex Turbov 2008-06-09 12:59:48 UTC
Default config for kio_info contains hardcoded list of info directories to search for info files. In gentoo we have INFOPATH environment variable with _actual_ directories with info files. I have start to solve this problem when found that URL `info:/gcc` doesn't work for me (just because gcc info files located not in a 'standard' place).
In addition info input field I will paste contents of my fixed config for kio_info. It takes contents of INFOPATH from environment instead of hardcoded list of directories.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to type in konqueror's location bar: info:/gcc

Actual Results:  
Info page says that no info pahes found for gcc...

Expected Results:  
HTMLized gcc info page

#   configuration settings for the 'info2html' script.

#-- get location of info files from environment

Get INFODIRS config var for `kde-info2html` script from INFOPATH environment instead of hardcoded directories list.

Try the one from KDE 3.5.10 - it seems to be fixed there.
