Devhelp extra search path variable

Does devhelp use extra paths to locate extra books i am trying to add /usr/share/doc

Devhelp up to 40.0 will only look under the following directories:

  • $XDG_DATA_HOME/gtk-doc/html
  • $XDG_DATA_HOME/devhelp/books
  • for each directory in $XDG_DATA_DIRS:
    • $directory/gtk-doc/html
    • $directory/devhelp/books

Starting from Devhelp 41, it will also look under $XDG_DATA_HOME/doc and $XDG_DATA_DIRS/doc.

I know you probably answered this somewhere I forgot where the post was. Nothing about the versioning had been stated. anyways things makes sense 41 isn’t available for my distro yet

The versioning scheme is explained at New GNOME versioning scheme. It’s expected that 41 isn’t available in your distro because it isn’t even released: the GNOME 41 release will be in September.
