Manpages fix on KDE neon?
#1
The man pages are not working as of now with an up to date KDE neon installation. 

Does anyone know how to fix it? I searched and found some old posts about nroff or troff missing, but this is not the case anymore.

Thanks

Seems to be a well known problem, with not a lot of good solutions:

One workaround has been described in this thread https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=6443&page=5 by rookieone.


Code:
sudo apt install apparmor-utils
sudo aa-disable /usr/bin/man


It worked for me.

I attached a picture of the error. 

I'll try that fix.

Wow, worked. I have no idea what apparmor is or why I need it. I'll research it.

Apparmor is good if you need it, and a pain if you don't. If you look run 'sudo aa-status' you can see all the apps that are "protected" by apparmor. If you move /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.man to someplace else, like /root, and restart the Pinebook, man pages will work (since man is no longer protected).

You can also try to disable apparmor, but just doing that didn't work for me.
