Upgraded kile cannot find previously accessible documentation on Tex/Latex


I upgraded the openSuse 10.2 machine to 10.3 via Yast2. As a result, the installed kile application (version 1.9) can no longer access the online documentation installed by TexLive. I tried upgrading kile to version 2.0.3 but I'm still getting the same negative results. When I invoke the documentation browser via the help menu, it still complains that it cannot find the path to TeTex files or that the file texdoctk.dat is missing.

Any hints would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

try setting the correct path from within kile
Also do a system check from within kile.

Which version of kile are you using?
If it is too old, install a new rpm/ compile from source

My kile version is the newest: 2.0.3. I downloaded it from Sourceforge and I compiled it from source code. The texlive documentation still cannot be accessed. I tried changing the help path to point to it but for some reason, kile refuses to read the texdoctk.dat that is in the path.

What's happening? Am I missing something? Thanks for the reply anyway.

Getting the correct path can be tricky ... /usr/share/doc/... or /usr/share/doc/texmf/...? . But this was a known bug with texlive 2007.
