If this works via terminal, can I do this:

Code: Select all

$ sudo mv /usr/local/man/man1 /usr/local/share/man/man1


Or is there a better method of moving the manual?

Yes: mv, or the Finder.

Not sure whether just moving this via finder is going to break anything (just in case the original path for the manual is set somewhere else).


man does not need to be told about every manpage. If it did, our script would have told it about growlnotify's manpage, and man growlnotify would have worked.

It looks in certain directories, and we're not putting it in the right one. The solution is to move it to the right one—that's all there is to it.

Will the script be updated in the future to correct the location at which the manual is installed?


Probably not. We're going to redesign how we do releases, breaking up Growl and the Extras, and as part of that, we'd like to give growlnotify an Installer package. That package will put the manpage in the right place.

Thanks for this. I used the mv method (using the terminal command I posted above) but it seems as if '/usr/local/share/man/man1' doesn't exist. I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.1/Growl 1.2 and am the only user of my computer.

Correct. You need to create that directory yourself.
