Running `texdoc pgfmanual` should open a pdf viewer with the file pgfmanual.pdf. But this is not the case, instead, it exits with
"Sorry, no documentation found for pgfmanual.
If you are unsure about the name, try searching CTAN's TeX catalogue at"
The command `texdoc pgf` opens the wrong manual.
`texdoc -l -s pgf` doesn't find the relevant hit.
`equery files pgf | grep pgfmanual.pdf` yields the file /usr/share/doc/pgf-2.10/pgfmanual.pdf, which should be opened.
I have pgf installed with the doc use flag enabled.
