apropos, man -k and mandb

I tried using man -k then apropos to find man pages, but nothing came up.   :(   pacman -Ql showed they should have given some results. But this was because I had never run mandb before. Some distros do this automatically when packages are installed, but apparently not here.
The fix was simple   :)  :
Code: [Select]
# mandb
It could be run as a cron job or just manually when you need it I suppose.
