Hi all,

I am trying to use tex and I just installed the package texlive on my 
ubuntu edgy box. However, in the texlive guide, a number of times the 
use of the texdoc program is adviced to get more documentation on a 
certain subject.

Apparently, texdoc is not included with the texlive package, since if I 

bram at bram-laptop:~$ texdoc
bash: texdoc: command not found

Does anybody what is the alternative way to open texdoc queries using 
texlive on an Ubuntu machine?

I know there is tetex as an equivalent which includes texdoc, it is 
however strange if the livetex user's guide itself refers to the program 
texdoc, without including it in a package for ubuntu.
