17.09.09 | 4 Comments

Laura Cowen, Alan Pope, Tony Whitmore and Ciemon Dunville are back once more from ‘Studio B’ sadly without Dave Walker, but with a crowning episode of the Ubuntu Podcast from the UK Local Community Support Team.

In this week’s show:-

Pop the following text in a text file called showman.sh in your home directory

if [ -z $DISPLAY ]
   #not in X so starting man in the foreground
   man $1
   #X is running so we can pop up the man page in a pretty window
   gnome-help man:$1  2>/dev/null &

make it executable with

chmod +x showman.sh

and edit your .bashrc file and at the end add

alias man="~/showman.sh"
