Man command not found?

Is the man command not installed with osmc? If not, is this a performance optimization?

Just wondering because I got an error when trying to look at man pages. I could not find any osmc forum threads confirming this one way, or the other.

osmc@piradio:~$ man man
-bash: man: command not found

man was not included in order to keep image size down.

That’s what I figured, but thanks for confirming.

For some time now I’ve been in the habit of getting the linux man pages from a (google) search.

You can install if you want. Is in the repository.

Can you or somebody please explain (noob-proof) how to install man and info commands for a osmc that is running on a rasbpi? The available add-on sources (incl. suprerepo) dont show these.

Man and info are not related to the add-ons for Kodi. So I doubt that you actually want them.
They are for the CLI commands. And I suggest instead of stressing the PI with installing them just use online sources like

only crap and fail is found in superrepo so please dont reference that here again

We cannot provide support for these. To get a better idea of our piracy policy, please see this link here FAQ - OSMC Forums

Thanks for your understanding

I actually want them - and still don´t know how to install. If i wanted to get the info that they are online accessible i would habe looked two posts above.

As you are so eager:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install man-db
sudo apt-get install info

Thank you very much.
For getting more self-sufficient: would there be a place where you can browse through the things you can apt-get???

Again - Thanks you two
