I have used R in Windows and just have it set up in Ubuntu. Now this is a really stupid question. How do I access the manuals? In the windows version there is a drop down menu under help, click it and a nice PDF manual appears. In the Linux version there is no drop down menu. I was trying various help() related commands with no avail. In the R-cran's site they tell you there are a bunch of manuals that come from the installation but they don't tell you how to access them!
