The Yelp package is not required for a functional GNOME desktop. Note, however, that without Yelp you will not be able to view the built-in Help provided by core GNOME and many of the support applications. This is mentioned here because you may not wish to install a Gecko layout engine. Without a Gecko layout engine you will have no graphical browser capability as the default GNOME browser, Epiphany-2.18.3, also requires a Gecko layout engine.

environment and the package will be installed in the correct
parameter causes the configuration files to be installed in
/etc/gnome/2.18.3 instead of

ScrollKeeper database is properly
