Comment:
Just came across the same problem.
Using Kubuntu Breezy final.
No error messages, error only showed up in the Details of the "Build search index" dialog.
Installed package htdig and it works now.

I was frustrated by this as well but had no idea to install htdig

I can verify this bug in Kubuntu Dapper.

FINDCMD: find /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/ -name index.docbook
Creating index for 'kde_application_manuals'
htdig failed

Installing htdig through apt, I'm informed that the htdig package has
been split in to the stable and unstable packages. The stable package is
installed by default. It seems the stable version should be moved to the
main repositories so that it can be a KDE dependency and the unstable
should be left in Universe.

I'm testing this in edgy.

I'm either testing it wrong, or it's been fixed.

Can someone else confirm this bug on edgy, with kde 3.5.4?

I'm testing this in edgy as well.

I'm also probably testing this wrong, but instead of the error you
provided, I got this error:

"

Same experience as Ryan. It claims to have completed successfully, but
if you view the details, there's the error.

Actually it fails with or without htdig. Looks like a typo on line 94
of /usr/bin/khc_docbookdig.pl - $kdekdehtmldir should be $kdehtmldir.

Problem originates in debian/patches/25_khelp_htdig.diff in kdebase.
That doesn't solve this bug, but htdig will fail no matter what until
it's fixed.

Adding a "me too" to Ryans error. This was a problem on Dapper as well
as Edgy(kubuntu RC, KDE 3.5.5). My personal inclination is to mark this
bugs priority as High (even though it is an easy [I think] fix). IMHO,
it is pretty severe when you can not create a search index for the help
files.

This will always be a problem because htdig is no longer maintained, and
hasn't been maintained. BUT... We can some how grab the version OpenSUSE
uses as it works great there, or we work with the Strigi guys to get it
implemented into KHelpCenter. This is what we are currently working on
with the KDE doc/dev team with Strigi.

Richard - What do you mean htdig is no longer maintained? It is
installable in Feisty ( htdig | 1:3.2.0b6-3 |
http://us.archive.ubuntu.com feisty/universe Packages ) and it seems
that making it a dependency would resolve this issue.

it's installable, but that does not mean it's being maintained. The
debian maintainer orphaned this package long ago, and until this package
has someone who wants to maintain it (and fix the CVE's for it), it will
not make it into main, hence it wont be able to be a dependancy.

I think this bug should have a much higher priority.

Imagine you know little about Linux, or even about any kind of operating
system. You install Kubuntu because you want a nice user-friendly
desktop environment, but the help system upon which you depend to find
your way around won't answer your questions. IMO that is a real blocker.

If a fundamental feature of KDE just won't work without htdig, then
htdig just has to be pulled in as a dependency, maintained or not.

This bug is still present on Gutsy, additionaly you must do "sudo ln -sf
/bin/bash /bin/sh" to make it work.

The KDE helpcenter (KDE version 3.5.8) still has no working search
facility after the release of Gutsy Gibbon. Apparently, the reason is
the missing htdig search system that is not installed as it is not
maintained anymore. As has been mentioned 9 months ago by another poster
in this bug report, Strigi might be an alternative to htdig, especially
that it is now included by default in Gutsy. I really hope that this bug
gets some attention. I have seen more than one new Kubuntu user that
tried to use the search facility of the KDE Helpcenter and becoming very
frustrated.

So in the meantime, until this is fixed, is the way to get the search
index in KDE help center to work to install htdig, and then enter "sudo
ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh" like Guillaume said?

Still fails in Hardy,

And after installing htdig it still fails, problem is still what Rocco said:
"Looks like a typo on line 94 of /usr/bin/khc_docbookdig.pl - $kdekdehtmldir should be $kdehtmldir."
Editing that fixes the problem.

Same for Hardy,

I use this solution :
1) sudo apt-get install htdig
2) sudo vi /usr/bin/khc_docbookdig.pl
change : my $findpath = "$kdekdehtmldir/$lang/";
with : my $findpath = "$kdehtmldir/$lang/";
(line 94)

Result :

Cyril BUQUET,

Unfortunately the failure you're having is another example of dash
breaking something.

I did what you suggested
1) sudo apt-get install htdig
2) sudo vi /usr/bin/khc_docbookdig.pl
change : my $findpath = "$kdekdehtmldir/$lang/";
with : my $findpath = "$kdehtmldir/$lang/";
(line 94)

But then had to change the sym link for /bin/sh from dash to bash.
3) sudo mv /bin/sh /bin/sh.old
4) sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh

And then when I re-ran the index build it worked.

Probably would be better to change the script that the help indexer uses
to explicitly call /bin/bash instead of /bin/sh though.

The following file
"~/.kde/share/apps/khelpcenter/index/kde_application_manuals.tmp/docbookparser"
is where the show stops.

It needs line 1 changed from
#! /bin/sh
to
#! /bin/bash

The above file's created from inside the following python script
"/usr/bin/khc_docbookdig.pl"

The source for the python script is
"kdebase-3.5.9/khelpcenter/searchhandlers/khc_docbookdig.pl.in"

Now all we have to do is get this file changed in the distro.

The completely broken Help Search continues with KHelpCenter 4.2.2 (KDE
4.2.3) in Kubuntu 9.04 Jaunty (amd64). htdig is STILL not a dependency
of KDE packages or khelpcenter4. KPackageKit lists a "htdig -
1:3.2.0b6-8"; its Required by is empty, as is its File List (??!).

I installed this htdig package, and then KHelpCenter's [Build Search
Index...] built me a new index, ending with ""ht://dig ... Finished
successfully" and it seemingly worked. There were no problems with bash
or perl files as other comments here report with Hardy.

Please just add htdig as a dependency to khelpcenter4, as has been done
in Debian lenny! Compare http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/khelpcenter4
with http://packages.debian.org/lenny/khelpcenter4.

This bug is here since 2005, could we put it in higher priority please? Not having a working KDE help system for the basic user in Kubuntu is really not acceptable.
The workaround is doable, but this is hardly something one can expect from a basic user who already has a hard time finding his/her way around. And has no hel system available...

A higher priority does not change the fact that Kubuntu does not have
the resources, nor does any team member have interest to rewrite
KHelpCenter. Same applies for KDE.

Just adding htdig is not the solutions as it was probably stated in some
comment above that it is horrible junk, dragging in more horrible junk,
not working reliably once it junked it's way through all the docbooks,
in case it even manages to do that without falling apart, and even if
all that weren't the case it still would not resolve all the other
shortcomings, bottlenecks and usability issues that make it the second
most awful application in core KDE (kuser being the most awful one).
From my point of view Medium is too high already, since there are much more awkward issues and since this issues is only part of the bigger one that KHC is unmaintained for the better part.
Simply put: KHC needs a rewrite

I find Harald's response troubling and totally agree with Myriam. I
don't use the help system much any more, but new users and what she
describes as "basic" users, need a working help system.

With all of the "horrible junk" already a part of the default kubuntu
install, a working help system seems worth it.

I see the problem is that htdig is not supported and maintained, yet to
properly work, khelpcenter should depend on it. I don't think Kubuntu
should depend on something unmaintained, but I think it is detrimental
to Ubuntu to expose a feature that is non-functionnal.

I think the middle ground would be completely disabling the search
feature if it cannot work, saying htdig should be installed. People
would at least know this is not working, why it doesn't work, and how to
make it work if they want to.

Harald, I value your comments and blog, but this bug is about KDE help
search failing because of htdig. In my experience as a n00b with
Jaunty, installing htdig didn't "drag in more horrible junk", it simply
made KHC search work -- badly, but FAR better than total failure. I
humbly submit that the one-line packaging change to add htdig as a
dependency (as Debian Lenny has done) will fix this bug in Jaunty and
Karmic.

"KHC needs a rewrite" is a different bug. I couldn't find it in
Launchpad or at bugs.kde.org, the closest I could find is "Add Builtin
Help Center Search Facility Indexer",
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93664 . And some interesting posts
about using strigi or QtHelp or whatever.

Francois-Denis, FWIW on MS-Windows, KHelpCenter has no Search tab but I
can't figure out how it's disabled. If it were easy to configure then I
agree Kubuntu could disable the search tab and add more instructions to
enabling search.

Where's a good place to document this problem and the workaround ? I
couldn't find "Kubuntu 9.04 release notes" anywhere, and perhaps
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904 is too general for KDE
Help Center.

If someone decides the resolution of this bug is really to disable the
Search tab rather than make htdig a dependency...

From
http://lxr.kde.org/source/KDE/kdebase/runtime/khelpcenter/searchengine.cpp#217
, if you don't have anything useful in
${DATA_INSTALL_DIR}/khelpcenter/searchhandlers , then KHelpCenter calls
hideSearch(). This directory isn't installed on Windows, hence there's
no Search tab in KDE-Windows. I think renaming it or its contents to
searchhandlers_DISABLED would do the trick in Kubuntu.
