When you go to MCC --> Hardware --> Configure printing and scanning --> Set up the printer(s), the print job queues, ...
and you click on "Help" in the menu bar, the only available options are:
However, there is no link to the help. That is a shame, because we have a really nice help for that screen
In Mandriva 2010.2, the link was missing too, btw.
That's actually a system-config-printer bug
In MCC, in the printer setup screen the help drop-down menu doesn't link to the help =>
in the printer setup screen the help drop-down menu doesn't link to the helpSource RPM:
drakconf-12.29-1.mga3.src.rpm drakconf-12.30-1.mga2.src.rpm =>
That's not a bug but a feature request (and still valid)
If you go to "Set up a scanner" or "Set up the KB" or Set up the mouse" next entries, you have the help. That doesn't make sense. Whoever seeing that thinks it is a bug.
My two cents
On the 25th of July, Phillipem uploaded the following packages to
@ Anyone reading this:
* If this bug is valid for you in cauldron, then please test whether updating your system-config-printer packages to version 1.5.7-5.mga6 fixes the problem and report back in this bug report.
* If you do not have this bug in cauldron, but you do run cauldron, then please update those packages, too, and report in bug 18367 whether they work as expected.

I made a mistake, it is system-config-printer-1.5.7-5.mga6.x86_64.
Bug still present with system-config-printer-1.5.7-5.mga6.x86_64
Motherboard Gigabyte, real hw, UEFI firmware, Mageia6-RC up to date.
Still valid current mga6, but it is hard to implement a link directly to the exact documentation, as it is in several languages: i.e going to
https://www.mageia.org/doc/ redirects in my case to
...And there i click the link to help for control panel
...then go to chapter
So the easy and reliable way is to simply link to https://www.mageia.org/doc/
that will automatically select language and user have choice of html or pdf too.
( For many years https://wiki.mageia.org/en/MCC have not been finished, and IMO should be linking to above main doc page which documents are kept updated. )
