Hi there,

just for your information: by yesterday noon I got to know that there is
a serious error in the KDE 2 templates regarding the installation path
of the documentation of a project. This error occurs due to a malicious
line in the Makefile.am in the directory containing the index.docbook

Problem description: 
The Project tree stores the index.docbook by default in:


The Makefile.am there contains two lines:


As AUTO defines that the documentation will be generated and installed
automatically, it will be placed during make install in:

instead of 

Problem solution:

For existing projects this bug can be avoided by changing the
Makefile.am to:

KDE_DOCS = projectname

Thanks for your attention and sorry for the trouble this has caused. I
hope everyone that has written a KDE 2 application with KDevelop isn´t
too disappointed by this error - as it wasn´t noticed until yesterday we
obviously couldn´t do anything about it. KDevelop 1.3 final will have
this error fixed.

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Oscar Wilde
