Hi! It's a vulnerability, then I removed it ;)
Best regards.

vulnerability???
I suppose I should have stated the the Help Menu is missing in Gufw, but I presumed since we were in the Gufw Messages that it would be understandable?

the Gufw, when I click on the Help & than Ctrl+H or just click on the next Help line-it states "Help Not Found"-that is what I am inquiring about!

Where is the Help Menu in Gufw?

What Marcos tried to say is that there's no help in the latest version of Gufw. It was removed as it was unsafe to launch the GNOME Help app as root.

Yes Deavidsr, as Emilio say, the GNOME Help is a browser in root mode.
It's can be a vunerability for the system, and then, I removed it.
For Ubuntu 9.04 you must use Gufw 9.04.2 ;) It will be in the backport repositories. You can download now here:
