According to a `yum deplist gnucash`, Gnucash depends on Yelp (most likely for its help and documentation system internally). Yelp, in turn, uses the Gecko libraries of Firefox for its rendering.
Ah, thank you Peter. I didn't know about 'yum deplist'. For the curious, here's a synopsis of the output for yelp: package: yelp.x86_64 2.16.0-9.fc6 dependency: libxpcom.so()(64bit) provider: firefox.x86_64 220.127.116.11-7.fc6 dependency: libgtkembedmoz.so()(64bit) provider: firefox.x86_64 18.104.22.168-1.fc6 dependency: gecko-libs = 22.214.171.124 provider: firefox.i386 126.96.36.199-8.fc6 dependency: libxpcom_core.so()(64bit) provider: firefox.x86_64 188.8.131.52-1.fc6 Everything except 'gecko-libs' is also provided by thunderbird but, as you suggested, 'gecko-libs' is only available from firefox. This seems strange to me - that to install yelp you actually have to download and install all of firefox. Just looked into yelp. It is the gnome help browser. Since I don't have yelp installed this would explain why F1 is not working for me in my installation. This makes it doubly strange; firefox has to be installed to view help in gnome! charlie
