#1901 Suggest link to online manual


A suggestion, not a bug --- /usr/share/maxima/5.xx.xx/xmaxima/intro.html which is displayed in the lower window at startup refers to a "Help Menu" in xmaxima which doesn't exist (in 5.20.1 on Fedora 12, for instance). I usually edit that file so that the first item ("Maxima Reference Manual") links to /usr/share/maxima/5.xx.xx/doc/html/maxima_toc.html. I'd like to see that be the default.

    My bad --- the Help Menu is on the right side (why?), and I missed it completely. The link would still be easy and helpful, though, if you're going to display intro.html on startup.

    As corrected by the author of this bug report the Help Menu is present and I think it is the usual place a help menu can be expected.
    I would like to suggest to close the bug report as "works for me".
