Re: man pages..

Hi,

given the error message you quote I would guess

/usr/bin/groff -Tlatin1 -mandoc is the problem,
more specifically -Tlatin1.

Try to uncompress a man-page manually and run the groff command above against it. Do you get the same error?

I do assume here that you get this error with all man pages not only the one for ls.

Re: man pages..

What's your LANG environment variable set to?

try this:

env LANG=C man ls

and see if it displays correctly.

Re: man pages..

after modifing /etc/profile.d/less.sh
JLESSCHARSET=ko
man pages are showing correctly.
