How to print man pages?
« on: February 23, 2008, 07:41:54 pm »
Hi,

I have my printer working on Windows machine. I never thought I would need to print anything from Linux, so did not setup it here. Is there a way to print 'man' pages? Eagerly waiting,..

You could try this workaround:

1. In a terminal, enter

man app_name &> filename

2. Open your favorite editor and search your home directory for "filename".

3. Open "filename" and print.
