According to a `yum deplist gnucash`, Gnucash depends on Yelp (most

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 1.5.0.7-7.fc6
 dependency: libgtkembedmoz.so()(64bit)
  provider: firefox.x86_64 1.5.0.8-1.fc6
 dependency: gecko-libs = 1.8.0.7
  provider: firefox.i386 1.5.0.7-8.fc6
 dependency: libxpcom_core.so()(64bit)
  provider: firefox.x86_64 1.5.0.8-1.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!
