PRINTING MAN PAGES


There are four ways to print out a man page, just see which one suits you best.
As an example we take the "mount" man pages


1). In a terminal/console, type:

CODE
$ man mount

After that, from the menu bar: "Session" --> "Print Screen"

OR:

2).In a terminal/console type:

CODE
$ man mount | col -b > mount.txt

As a result, you will find the mount.txt file in home. Open it and send the text file to your printer.

OR: ( also for easy reading )

3).In Konqueror: type "#mount" in the address bar and press the "print" button from the menu bar.

AND:

4). The super man pages: ( for the ones you can not find on your system ) http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.org/su...erman_pages.php
Search for "mount" and print it from your browser.


Sure, you do know that there is a man page for every command . . . reading about them can sometimes show you surprising extra options for each command.
