Did you compiled in a clean directory or where there old stuff from
kdevelop1.1?

Do you know where your KDE docs are on your disk?

Did you try to start KDevelop from the command line to see what it prints?
You can perhaps also try to use "strace" with a command like "strace
kdevelop" to see what it prints when you try to access the docs.

If this doesn't help you to know where KDevelop is looking, you can try to
put "printf" or "debug"statement in the code.


I am not sure but I think that KDevelop should look in either

/usr/share/doc/HTML

or

/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML

Perhaps you can try to create symlinks to make things work.

Perhaps you can try strace or putting debug instruction like above to see
what kdevelop does.
Or perhaps you can try the internal debugger and set some breakpoints.

Did you try a "make clean"? Or create a new project and copy your source
files in the new project?

Hope this helps, anyway tell us what happens when you try things.

Bye,
Christian.
