# What in Quickly creates an empty …/share/gnome/help/…/C/figures/ folder?

Something in packaging scripts creates an empty figures folder where it's not present before this packaging.

Where is it?

I don't use Quickly, but have you looked at your setup.py file? You could also grep your source dir to see where it comes from: grep -Inr "figures" * –  Timo Nov 25 '12 at 18:00
I've already grepped. –  int_ua Nov 26 '12 at 15:52

This folder is present in the /usr/share/quickly/templates/ubuntu-application/project_root folder which is what I think is copied over when you create a new project. If I remove that directory, when I create a new application with quickly, the help/C/figures directory is no longer there.

EDIT: I goofed... didn't check your path in the title of the question. Sorry, this path isn't removed, when you delete it from the template.

Almost any GNOME application (maybe GNOME 2) would create such folder with path:

/share/gnome/help/[appname]/C/figures/


... where [appname] is your GNOME application and folder figures can include various graphic files.

Cite from GNOME 2 Development Guide:

For example, if your installation prefix is /opt/gnome , you'll find the original documentation for the GNOME terminal in /opt/gnome/share/gnome/help/ terminal/C and the images for the German documentation for Gnumeric in /opt/ gnome/share/gnome/help/gnumeric/de/figures.

But what script creates it? Or, alternatively, how can I disable it? –  int_ua Dec 2 '12 at 12:43
obviously it depends on what was hidden under wildcard [...] inside this path ... so reasonable question is: How to find APPLICATION with empty folder 'figures' in the common shared GNOME help directory? :) looks at least strange ... that it? –  swift Dec 2 '12 at 13:22
just I think it isn't Quickly. Or you if you can log your Quickly, then it should to show this a bit more better. In the Quickly it can be some helpDoc generator which make it next or before of building app ... –  swift Dec 2 '12 at 13:48
