    Unhappy How to install linux man pages manually?

    I tried some unix system program in Ubuntu 9.04(Which I installed using a CD). When I tried man mq_open, it says man page is not installed. I dont have Internet connectivity to my laptop.I have Ubuntu 9.04 cd with me. I want to know how could I install that man page manually.

    Re: How to install linux man pages manually?

    man pages are usually installed along with the package manager.
    You can try running
    Code:
    sudo mandb
    but other than that, it's likely no documentation was provided.

    You can get the .deb file for manpages and manpages-dev from here...

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/doc/

    Download it to your internet connected computer and transfer it to your laptop. Either add it to your apt source list or just right-click and use Gdebi installer.
