Summary0017176: Package scribus-docs package puts scribus documentation in wrong place
DescriptionI installed scribus and scribus-doc. I tried to access the files but could not access them because, according to Oliver on the ubuntu-users email mailing list:

"right, the issue is that scribus does not use a standard location for
its docs ... typically deb packages ship their docs in
/usr/share/doc/<packagename> while scribus ships them in
/usr/share/<packagename>/doc ...

firefox uses (and auto-connects) the "system-packages-doc" interface
that allows it read access to everything under /usr/share/doc"
Steps To ReproduceInstall packages scribus and scribus-doc

Using GNOME's Nautilus, navigate to /usr/share/scribus/doc/en and click on index.html

Web browser tab appears, stating
Firefox can’t find the file at /usr/share/scribus/doc/en/index.html

This is because the files really should be in /usr/share/doc/scribus

i guess that you should report this to ubuntu.

they are in charge of the packaging of scribus...
