Searching for Man Files

If you aren't sure which command or application you need to use, you can try searching the man files.

  • man -k foo: This searches the man files for foo. Try man -k nautilus to see how this works.
  • man -f foo: This searches only the titles of your system's man files. Try man -f gnome, for example.
