You're right gman I have no clue what I'm doing, but it is lots of fun getting it to work. I'm sure a real hacker could of fixed this in an hour but its been a great learning experience for me and also inspiring.
Well if you haven't guessed by now I've been trying to get the help menu working in gnome-games for the past week. I got frustrated after enabling all the OMF docs (and breaking the build :() that the menu items weren't working. It seemed that no one was really doing it so I started trying to do it myself as it seemed like a basic cut and paste job.
So I've learnt that coding is never just cut and paste, you also need to have some idea what you're doing. Well I think I'll stick to docs for now, but this was enough fun to make me want to do some more, so I'll try to work at finding easy stuff to do and learn from.
