    Missing Man Pages!


    All my man pages are gone!
    I am using ubuntu gutsy and recently went through an english language package update, (that failed once) and i don't know if that had something to do with it or not...

    manpath gives me /usr/local/man:/usr/local/share/man:/usr/share/man
    first 2 are empty, and the thrisd path has to manuals - one for a program i installed after this happened, and the other Xres, i dont know when it was installed (the package is not in my /var/cache/apt/archives folder so i think it was awhile ago).

    any help would be great, even if anyone knows how i could *possibly* get all the man pages without reinstalling each individually

    thanks

    oh my goodness this sucks.

    Try doing
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install manpages
    Does that help?

    nah not really, that will get back a few pages.
