colorize man pages



But how?

sudo apt-get install most

Then add this line to your ~/.bashrc:

export PAGER=most

Open a new terminal and try it.

This tip is from here. As the user cannedprimates states, “you can solve this issue by using a different pager, for example most. man will actually use the program specified in the PAGER environment variable.”
