[Bug 1686267] Re: please move ubuntu-help/ to gnome-help/
You can install gnome-getting-started-docs now if you have an artful
install. When I tested, it showed up as an extra section at the bottom
of the main Help page.
If we use gnome-initial-setup, by default it opens the Getting Started
help after the user completes the setup questions.
If you like those 2 packages (getting-started and initial-setup), I can
file the Main Inclusion Requests.
Yes, we could still switch to gnome-user-guide later. I think it would
be good to decide which package to use before 17.10 Artful is released,
but you might want to wait until closer to Feature or UI Freeze?

Documentation Packages, which is subscribed to ubuntu-docs in Ubuntu.
please move ubuntu-help/ to gnome-help/
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
For Ubuntu 17.04 and earlier, we patched several (but not all) GNOME
apps to show help:ubuntu-help when run in Unity but still show help
:gnome-help when run in GNOME.
That won't work anymore with 17.10.
You can see this by installing gnome-shell then logging into GNOME. (It's probably easiest to choose lightdm if asked unless you install ubuntu-gnome-desktop because of LP: #1686257 )
Open the Help app. It should display either Ubuntu's Help or GNOME's
Help but it instead loads the All Help page because it can't find help
Easy Suggested Fix
bzr mv ubuntu-help gnome-help
Be sure to set Conflicts: gnome-user-guide
Then we probably need to change all the places that point to help
:ubuntu-help to point to help:gnome-help unless someone really wants
to maintain a Unity Help Guide.
Alternate Suggested Fix
We could just install gnome-user-guide instead of ubuntu-docs.
Depending on how much customization is wanted, you could fork gnome-
And update help:ubuntu-help links to help:gnome-help like in the
I think we'll eventually want a transitional package once we figure out what package name we're going to stick with.
