Just installed v5.60 under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I entered the 2 export lines in .bashrc. When I click on help, I get the window with all the selections, but when I: click, double click, or press enter, nothing happens.

As a workaround, for now, you can use the online Help or download the PDF:

I see there were about 185 views, and one reply to download the file and review it externally, which I did, and thank you. But, . . . this issue is not resolved, and I assumed (my faux pas) that this problem would be somewhat universal. Do the gurus watch this forum? Am I not presenting enough data? Is Ubuntu considered MS Windows' step child?

Runs with me without problems.

I just pack the folder Purebasic in the personal folder.
Put an icon on the desktop

Then still developer packaged install

sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-dev libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev


I do not more...

Or I do not understand your question.

I executed those three lines, with no change. I am not sure what they did, as there is no reference to Pure Basic in the commands, nor are these commands in the install procedure, that I could find.

In any event, the problem that I am having is: when I click on a title in the help system, nothing happens. On my laptop, running Windows Vista, clicking on a title causes the help text for the titled item to be displayed, so I am assuming that this is a Linux issue.
