Have you tried with any gnome packages? Gnome packages
install the pixmaps in the dir $(datadir)/pixmaps/<package_name>
and the help files in the dir $(datadir)/gnome/help/<package_name>.

where, $(datadir) is the output of: gnome-cofig --datadir.

So, if the gnome is system installed, then naturally, all the packages
are required to put there stuffs wrt this $(datadir) which require them
to be system installed. Otherwise, when the program is run, gnome
wouldn't be able to find the pixmaps and the help for this application.

I am not very clear how a gnome application can do local installation
and put there stuffs in custom $(datadir) and still gnome could find
these stuffs. Can anybody, help with this?



I feel better about world problems now!
