Make help folder location more forgiving

Registered by S on 2009-12-30

Right now the help folder location is hardcoded for /usr/share/gnome/help/kabikaboo/. Assuming that some people would like to simply untar the tar.gz in their home directory and get going with Kabikaboo (with the manual, no less), how about also having Python look in ../help?

Whiteboard

Could be done with a few more elif...clauses, I think. Should look in os.path.join("..", "help") for the files before erroring out. IMO, the .tar.gz should be as portable as possible--good to assume not all users will have root access, even though Ubuntu, of course, has sudo and is set up for only one user usually..

31 July 2011 Fixed in my GTK3 branch.
