NAME

       scrollkeeper.conf - ScrollKeeper configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       System-wide configuration of ScrollKeeper

DESCRIPTION

       The  system-wide  scrollkeeper.conf  file  is  typically  installed  at
       /etc/scrollkeeper.conf.  It stores the  default  OMF  paths  which  are
       searched   by   scrollkeeper-update  (8)  to  update  the  ScrollKeeper
       documentation catalog.  The paths are  held  by  the  OMF_DIR  variable
       which is assigned to a colon (:) delimited list of paths.

       Comment lines begin with the (#) character.

EXAMPLE

       A typical scrollkeeper.conf file will look like:

       # Comment
       OMF_DIR=/usr/share/omf:/usr/local/share/omf:/opt/gnome/share/omf:/opt/gnome-2.0/share/omf:/opt/kde/omf

NOTES

       Any  user  on  the  system  is  able to use the scrollkeeper-update (8)
       command to generate a ScrollKeeper database at any path that  the  user
       has  write  permission  to.   The user can over-ride the system default
       OMF_DIR path variable by setting a shell variable  of  the  same  name,
       OMF_DIR.   In  this  way,  a  user  can create a document catalog which
       contains a superset  of  the  system  documentation,  or  a  completely
       independent set of documents which the user may be interested in.

       Note  that most applications will register its documentation at install
       time, and unregister it at uninstall time.   Thus,  a  user  who  keeps
       their  own  personal ScrollKeeper database may need to periodically run
       scrollkeeper-update (8) manually (or with cron) to keep their  database
       up-to-date.
