(man)ual question

I used to use XandrOS and with "man" you could navigate up and down through the manual, but since installing Debian I can only scroll down, and hence I have to reload the manual, it's only "--MORE--".

Can I make it be able to scroll up and down, pageup and pagedown?

It works fine for me with pageup/down keys(?). Try holding shift and up/down arrow keys to see if it works.

nope didn't work.

I use PuTTy for remote ssh and that just scrolls the actual window up and down, not the actual manual.
