Side Note: Starting Multiple DevHelp Instances

December 4, 2009

Some time ago, a Gedit Master revealed on IRC that you can start multiple independent Gedit processes by setting the TMPDIR environment variable to another directory (the idea can be evolved into a small script).

Turns out this also works for DevHelp – hooray! Now if there was just a way to get this working for Nautilus; the devs broke this feature some releases ago, and I haven’t seen a cure so far.
