Are they installed ?? What exactly are you typing to try and bring up xman ? Are you trying to specify a particular man page or just typing xman ??

Let us know !

Xman edit the profile

I use Redhat 7.3 myself.
You should edit your /etc/profile
and put in the next line :

MANPATH=/usr/man:/usr/local/man:/usr/X11R6/man
(add your other man pages here to)

export MANPATH
(there should already be an export line in there so add MANPATH to the list)

this part is done.
If you don't want to reboot just type :

source /etc/profile

Now you can use xman with manpages.
