Thread: man pages?

  1. #1

    Default man pages?

    Ok...I KNOW this is a dumb question...

    New install. Where the hell did the man pages go?

    This might be a clue:

    linux-s5ud:~ # man ifconfig
    If 'man' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf man

    Did you try running 'cnf man'?

    You need to install the 'man' package.

    Starting from the top. Open a terminal window and run some commands...

    1. Which openSUSE version did you install?
    Code:
    cat /etc/os-release
    2. Let's check your configured repos
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    If you have network connectivity and the appropriate repositories configured then it may be as simple as installing the man package using
    Code:
    sudo zypper in man

    You have choosen to tell us you use an OTHER VERSION.
    The fact that choosing the openSUSE version you use is the first and thus prominet item to do when you start a thread should also communicate to you that when you have an OTHER VERSION (and thus not supperted), you should at least start your post telling which one!

    I can assure you that the man command was available on all openSUSE version used by me until now. LIke it was on all other Linux distributions I occasionally used and the same for all other Unices that came into my life.

    Thus I am very curious about what your OTHER VERSION is.

    Gecko-Linux does not include man by default

    If zypper command does not bring it in (it should) use Yast- Software management and search for man. Start yast from menu or if yast from command line for text version

    NAME="openSUSE Leap"
    VERSION="42.2"
    ID=opensuse
    ID_LIKE="suse"
    VERSION_ID="42.2"
    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE Leap 42.2"
    ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
    CPE_NAME="cpe:/opensuse:leap:42.2"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.opensuse.org"
    HOME_URL="https://www.opensuse.org/"


    That solves the 'other release' issue. man pages are fixed now too...thank you for your help.
