44.1 Using the SUSE Help Center

When you start the SUSE Help Center for the first time from the main menu (SuSE Help Center) or with the command susehelp in the shell, a window as shown in Figure 44-1 is displayed. The dialog window consists of three main areas:

Menu Bar and Toolbar

The menu bar provides the main editing, navigation, and configuration options. File contains the option for printing the currently displayed content. Under Edit, access the search function. Go contains all navigation possibilities: Table of Contents (home page of the Help Center), Back, Forward, and Last Search Result. With Settings Build Search Index , generate a search index for all selected information sources. The toolbar contains three navigation icons (forward, back, home) and a printer icon for printing the current contents.

Navigation Area with Tabs

The navigation area in the left part of the window provides an input field for a quick search in selected information sources. Details regarding the search and the configuration of the search function in the Search tab are presented in Section 44.1.2, The Search Function. The Contents tab presents a tree view of all available and currently installed information sources. Click the book icons to open and browse the individual categories.

View Window

The view window always displays the currently selected contents, such as online manuals, search results, or Web pages.

It contains special documentation for SUSE Linux Enterprise (Start-Up and Reference), all available information sources for your workstation environment, online help for the installed programs, and help texts for other applications. Furthermore, the SUSE Help Center provides access to SUSE's online databases that cover special hardware and software issues for SUSE Linux Enterprise. All these sources can be searched comfortably once a search index has been generated.
