Are people happy with there being just 1 root directory under which all
Xara LX resource files (help, movies, examples, etc.) are stored? I much
prefer this for simplicity.
I think it is ok, but I wouldn't mind if it would be not to difficult to
/usr/share/xaralx/doc into e.g. /usr/share/docs/xaralx. At least if a
Linux distribution builds an .rpm or .deb, they probably want to change
this. Thus it would be nice if they don't have to patch too many files.
I don't think this is necessarily the case, for example gnome puts all it's help files in /usr/share/gnome/help (certainly on FC5). The /usr/share/docs/[APP] directory is usually used for release documents, author lists, etc (the chaff documents that are in the root of the source release).
Were does the manpage end up? I cannot find anything at
The usual manpage directories. If it doesn't yet it should do 8-)
