I'm trying to create a Help document for an application, but I couldn't find a program who does this.

In Windows I used to work with Help & Manual, which is a content management system for creating documentation. Isn't there an equivalent for this program in Ubuntu ?

Is it a GUI application, or command line? – belacqua Jun 9 '13 at 0:34
it's a GUI application, for Windows we can find many programs as Helpinator, HelpSmith, Help & Manual... – Aimad Majdou Jun 9 '13 at 0:49
As Ubuntu/Linux/Unix is a large and open ecosystem, there won't be a single answer. Is this for Gtk, Qt, tcl/tk, etc.? – belacqua Jun 9 '13 at 0:54
@belacqua I think you didn't undestand my question, I'm just looking for some software which allows me to create help manuals, you just use HTML on it. – Aimad Majdou Jun 9 '13 at 1:03
That's fine -- I'm just try to clarify the question for others who can answer it, assuming I can't (which is likely). I'm not at all clear on what you need yet -- what do the tools in Windows provide? Is it html editing, html plus a template? – belacqua Jun 9 '13 at 3:26
