[Bug 1559070] Re: SVG icons not shown / "yelp </path/to/file.page>" fails


Changed the title to reflect the upstream bug report, and re-opened the
yelp (ubuntu) task. Even if we work around the problem with absolute
paths to images in ubuntu-docs, other packages which rely on yelp might
be affected of this issue.

** Summary changed:

- SVG icons not shown / "yelp </path/to/file.page>" fails
+ Images referenced by absolute path don't load

** Changed in: yelp (Ubuntu)
       Status: Fix Released => Confirmed

** Changed in: yelp (Ubuntu)
     Assignee: Gunnar Hjalmarsson (gunnarhj) => (unassigned)

Bug description:
  The latest yelp version in Xenial doesn't show SVG icons in Ubuntu
  Help. Example icon:


  SVG files are displayed in GNOME Help, but there they use relative
  paths to the files (included in package). Don't understand why that
  would make a difference, though.

  Another issue is that calling yelp with the path to a .page file as
  argument fails with: "Unknown Error - URL cannot be shown".

  Downgrading to the Wily version 3.16.1-1ubuntu1 of yelp and libyelp0
  fixes both issues.
