Usrsharedocpackages

Many packages on the system install at least some related documentation in the directory /usr/share/doc/packages/. Occasionally, badly behaved third-party packages will use

/usr/share/doc/. The quality of the documentation found here varies. In many cases you will simply find a copyright and license notice and installation instructions that are irrelevant because they apply to building and installing from source. However, some packages install serious documentation here in the form of printable manuals in PostScript or PDF format. For example, the iproute2 package installs a set of files in /usr/share/doc/packages/iproute2/including a full 60-page command reference for the i p command in PDF format.
