 Manpath problem
Author: k 
Date:   09-01-01 19:29

I'm having a problem getting my manpages up (4.2 STABLE)
When I run the command "manpath" it shows: /usr/local/qt/doc/man
I don't have this directory on my system and this doesn't
show in my /etc/manpath.config or /etc/login.conf
Does anyone know where this path is coming from and what I can
do to edit it? Here are the results from manpath -d:

found mandatory man directory /usr/share/man
found mandatory man directory /usr/share/perl/man
found optional man directory /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/man
found manpath map /bin --> /usr/share/man
found manpath map /usr/bin --> /usr/share/man
found manpath map /usr/local/bin --> /usr/local/man
found manpath map /usr/X11R6/bin --> /usr/X11R6/man
(Warning: MANPATH environment variable set)
/usr/local/qt/doc/man:

Also once I get this solved, will I need to unzip all the manpages in the various directories?


Thanks

have you checked your shell initialization script?

try typing
# echo $MANPATH

see what happens.

just a thought.. probably wrong :)

That was it. Somehow my .profile had the manpath set wrong. No
idea what caused it, but now I can RTFManpages.

Thanks!
