I am using ubuntu 7.10 (amd64) and installed context using the debian 
repositories without any problem. However, the directory structure of the 
documentation has been reorganized, and it does not work correctly.

What I usually do is

locate show-man.pdf | xargs gnome-open

which opens show-main.pdf.gz from /usr/share/doc/context-doc-nonfree/showcase/

Now suppose I wan to open the charts manual. The show-man.pdf links to 
general/manuals/mchart.pdf while mcharts.pdf is at 
/usr/share/doc/context-doc-nonfree/manuals/ and the file is named 

So, there are two differences here. The files are organized in a different 
directory structure, and have a different extension. Is there some way 
this can be corrected at the packaging end?

Thank you.
