Whenever I try to access a man page for a specific command as a non-root user I get the error message as below :
uncle@ubuntu:/$ man ls
man: Can't create a temporary filename : Permission denied
This has happened somewhat mysteriously. I can only view the man pages as root or if I "sudo." Could this be because the permissions of the /tmp directory have been altered ? If so what should the correct permissions be ? World readable / writeable and executable ?
