Ubuntu/Debian - MAN pages in French

October 2016

The manuals in French under Debian/Ubuntu

The manual is an important source of information on GNU/Linux. By default, the manuals are in English. But you can also have them in French: just install the packages, using the command:

apt-get install manpages-fr

or, if you're running Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install manpages-fr
  • Note that only pages in English are updated, other languages are not!

Thanks to Le Hollandais Volant for this tip.
