#3836 jEdit cannot find the docs in openSuse 12.3

normal bug

I installed JEdit (the Java Editor). The problem is that when I started it for the first time, it appeared it was lacking the welcome file, and now each time I launch it I get \"/doc/tips not found\". It seems that docs are present but not where jedit expects them to be. docs are in /usr/share/doc/packages/jedit/ but jedit expects them to be in /usr/share/jedit/doc/
I expect a fix for this (on openSuse 12.3, KDE desktop environment, jEdit 4.5.1
Thank you in advance,

    opensuse is an RPM-based distro, if I am not mistaken. That means someone at opensuse made the package and that is out of my control. I think this is a ticket you must open on opensuse's tracker, since it seem related to their particular packaging of jEdit.
