Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


Updated diff as suggested by David Faure


In case a requested help documentation was not found for whatever reason (not installed, no documentation, wrong/missing X-DocPath etc.) KHelpcenter/Konqueror display the error message "There is no documentation available for %1." and additionally a modal dialog with the error message "The file or folder help://%1 does not exist" pops up.
With this patch kio_help tries to load a docbook called "documentationnotfound" which will be installed with the khelpcenter documentation from kdebase/runtime. In this docbook the user will find information how to solve this issue and links to kde documentation online (

With this patch and no docbook "documentationnotfound" installed no change to the current situation, with an installed docbook "documentationnotfound" this is displayed as expected.
