Subject: xfce4-utils: XFCE is missing some HELP pages
Package: xfce4-utils
Version: 4.6.1-2
Severity: minor

*** Please type your report below this line ***


On a Debian Xfce, Clicking on Xfce menu, then on Help calls up the
Xfce Documentation webpage located at

The following pages are missing (all other pages are ok):

The left hand side=name that what appears in the help page....[ = name
that help index tries to access]

Settings Manager.............[/usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/xfce-mcs-manager.html]
Settings Manager Plugins.....[/usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/xfce-mcs-plugins.html]
Application Finder...........[/usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/xfce4-appfinder.html]

Navigating in a file manager to the area /usr/share/xfce4/doc/C I can
see that the other pages exist ok but no pages exist with names
similar to the missing names.
eg /usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/xfce4-panel.html is a page that exists and
which works ok
