Description of problem:
Originally I could not get output from the man command in gnome-terminal without pipeing through less. The limbo mailing list provided me a hint to install the most recent vte package from Raw Hide. That fixed the gnome problem, but the display for the man command when run in Konsole has always been misformatted serverely. Line wrapping happens in the wrong place as is spacing and most formatting. This was not a problem in Limbo and was first noticed after running up2date on my Null installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.type man followed my a command that has a man page inside a Konsole window
Actual Results: horribly misformatted text that is difficult to read
Expected Results: standard man page formattting and output
I found this very same problem. Still not fixed! It's been 5 months. I find
that under Gnome there is no problem, but with KDE there is.
This is a bug in less-378-7/groff-1.18.1-20. If you upgrade the latest version
of groff/less from rawhide, it should fix this problem for you.
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
