Good afternoon,


Thank you for the texdoc tool.  It is great and a helpful tool, esp. in the teaching process.


I have recently installed TeX Live 2011.  The texdoc tool is working well under Microsoft Windows (7 Home).  I also tried Ubuntu 11.04 and Debian 6 (using virtual environment via VMware Player) as I dislike to have TeX Live 2009 there using plain „sudo apt-get install texlive-full“...  


Installation went fine, but after trying „texdoc“ I’m getting:


user at debian:~$ texdoc lshort

Any hint or did I simply overlook something in the process?
