[Lazarus] Got Lazarus 2.0.0 from SVN, missing help files

Free Pascal - Lazarus mailing list
I installed Lazarus 2.0.0 on Linux Mint 19 using svn to check out tag
2_0_0 and doing a make bigide inside.

It all worked well to get Lazarus up and running, but now I found a
problem regarding help...
When I want to check the syntax for a command using the F1 key there
is a dialog saying it cannot find rtl.chm.

What can I do to rectify this?
find does not find any such file on my system...

You can download them from here:
https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/binaries/docs/chm/
and put them into lazarus/docs/chm/

Thanks, I will do that.
Maybe I can even check them out from svn directly into that folder?

What I did in the end:
In a terminal:
cd ~/dev/lazarus/2.0.0/docs
svn export --force
https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/binaries/docs/chm chm

The checkout took a while but when done I closed and started Lazarus
2.0.0 and then used the F1 key with the cursor on the word
StrToIntDef, which did not work before, but now the help page
appeared!

Thanks for the help, I will add this to my document on how to install
fpc/lazarus from svn sources.

Question:
What will happen if I use co rather than export? I will then have a
working copy within another working copy, is that goind to screw up my
updates down the line?
