KDevelop and kdelibs-doc

I am learning C++ and decided to develop on linux with KDevelop. The distro I am using is Mandrake Linux 9.1, and it came with kdevelop 2.1.5-3 preinstalled. However, the first few times I ran it , whined about missing packages, all of which I have found and installed. However, it indexes existing documentation to help the user reference it during development, and that brings me to what I believe to be my final hurdle - kdelibs-doc.

It says that the path for them was not found, and that I need to install them and manually set the path to them. Aftter some searching, I found an tar.bz2 package with the docs and extracted them to a temp directory, but I knew that shouldn't be their final resting place,

so I copied /home/tmp/kdelibs/usr/share/doc/html/kdelibs to /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kdelibs and now I think I just need to set an environment variable to specifiy the location of these docs in order to make the kdevelop indexer happy.

That was quite a mouthful, so, does anyone know the name of the path variable I need to set to finally get started developing on linux?

Where did you get the bzip2 archive of docs?

I'd love to know where you got the docs. I've tried looking for them on the site and couldn't find them. Also, did you have luck with setting the kdelibs-doc on the PATH?

I've got the same problem - I've installed KDElibs-doc but kdeveloper doesn't like it.

The package installs itself by default to /usr/doc
I've tried adding it to the path but to no avail.

Is this the right version? I got it as an RPM

PS. I found this at
for the person that was asking

Thanks for any assistance

EDIT: This is a Caldera package... should that make any difference (for HTML documentation?)
