Appimage: Include man pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When using "man gpg" in the appimage command line the user is directed to the host systems man pages.

This is of course not optimal as we would like to show man pages directly.

I think packaging /usr/share/man and adding the /tmp/.mount_gnupg-ePpsRq/usr/share/man directory to a $MANPATH environment variable in Apprun should already do the trick.

FWIW, the man pages do not carry all the info we have. However, I plan to chnage this and put everyting into man pages. It turned out that even me uses the man pages more than info(1) or gnupg/doc/*.
