I've found a simple workaround: 'man 'command' | most', probably with the most.rc file 'borrowed' from Zenwalk provides colored man pages.
I'm trying to add some color to the man pages (since I'm using them all the time). So far I've added an 'export PAGER="most" statement to /root/.bashrc and a config file (?) /etc/most.rc 'borrowed' from my Zenwalk desktop installation.
This should do the trick. But it doesn't.
Can anybody help me please.
