opengl documentation

Asked by Craig Vyvial on 2007-04-27

How do i get the Opengl Documentation in KDevelop to work correctly so i can view all the GL Functions from the toc file.

I keep getting errors like this..

An error occurred while loading man:glAccum:
Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:
 klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'man'.

Can I ask you what OpenGL documentation and how you installed it in your PC and kdevelop?

I just installed Ubuntu 7.03 to check it out and i installed KDevelop with synaptic package manager and everything runs fine but the opengl documentation file that was installed with KDevelop gives me the error above in the main display window.

From my analysis i think it could be something with the opengl.toc file not being read properly or something because i tried the other documentation files work in the list and they worked fine. But i am not sure why the documentation is calling man for the opengl doc.

I have been doing some opengl development and i was curious on how helpful that documentation maybe.

If the opengl doc is a man entry then it makes sense that man (actually the konqueror man extension) is called.
You can try to check the associated toc file. It should be located in:


You can find a basic description of the toc file format in:

You can also try to open the Opengl man doc with Konqueror, to check that it is indeed displayed correctly.

Can you help with this problem?
