#8577 closed defect

Finch man page/documentation

Reported by: pressingonalways Owned by: sadrul
Milestone: Component: finch (gnt/ncurses)
Version: 2.5.5 Keywords: documentation, man page, help


Finch documentation is lacking and finding out how to use the interface is quite hard. Options such as crtl+x for accessing menus in the buddylist is undocumented (or at least hard to find). I had to ask the IRC channel to find such information. All these information should be in the man page and needs to be updated.

A tutorial on using finch would also be good.

  • Status changed from new to pending

What other bits are missing from the manual? There's a FAQ linked from the man-page. And feel free to create a tutorial in this wiki.

* Plucked rev 143e16e9 (sadrul@…): Save the world.

Patch from Arunan Bala to save the world. But instead of saving the cheerleader, he's using g_timeout_add_seconds where possible in place of g_timeout_add. Closes #8831.

* Plucked rev 4a4ac072 (sadrul@…): Update the copyright name, as requested.

* Plucked rev 91e51efe (sadrul@…): Update the finch manual some. Refs #8577.
