I can open Yelp to a specific man page as follows:

yelp man:bash &

But how can I use Yelp to browse (view a list of all man pages and open them one by one) and search (find all man pages that contain a given string)?


The search feature in yelp is broken and does not include man pages in the results. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=505641

This is unsatisfying, but You can press [Ctrl]+[L] and enter the man page to display, e.g. man:bash.
