BETA version of linux course:
man ls and man man both didnt work in the web-interface-terminal
I ran into the same thing.
Same thing for me. Is there anyway to skip past this exercise and continue on with the course, or do we have to wait until they fix it?
Same here. It throws:
bash: man: command not found.
Not being able to continue the course should be fixed, too
I also am having this issue.
non of the commands worked for me either:
I can still progress through to the next section, but nothing has been learned in this one.
Man commands are still not working.
I have ran into this same issue, is there a work around yet?
Appears this is a common issue so I’ve gone ahead and reported it, hopefully we can get a fix soon!
Happy coding all
I’m still having this issue as well. I typed all the commands it asked me to and was able to proceed with the course despite not really know what the commands are supposed to do.
am having the same issue not being able to continue whith the course since the terminal doesn’t reconize the words am copying and pasting in bash
man still not working now
man and info files in /usr/bin/ missing.
Issue first reported in March 22 and still has not been fixed!
