I've tried to install cppman in Fedora 19 or Linux mint 15 and it installs successfully. But when I try to use it I get the error:

Python IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

I've installed it in Ubuntu 12.04 and had no problem. Can you help me?

Update: I fixed this problem, but I have a new problem. when for example I enter cppman cout the output shown is not in right format:

"1mNAME0m std::cout - Standard output stream

1mTYPE0m object 1mSYNOPSIS0m extern ostream cout;

1mDESCRIPTION0m Object of class ostream that represents the standard output stream oriented to narrow characters (of type char

   ). It corresponds to the C stream stdout."

It seems that I need to install or configure something. Can you help me?

do you have SELinux in enforcing mode? – dawud Jul 15 '13 at 19:42
    
@dawud: I don't know much about SELinux. How can I check that. But I think that SELinux is not installed in Linux mint but I have the same problem there. – Farzam Jul 15 '13 at 19:57
    
In Fedora it is enabled by default. Mint, being a Debian derivative, is less likely to have it enabled. Find out issuing sestatus -v – dawud Jul 15 '13 at 20:13
    
@dawud: yes, it is in enforcing mode but as you mentioned linux mint doesn't have SELinux, but it has the same problem so the problem is not because of that. – Farzam Jul 15 '13 at 20:29
    
Then add to your question the steps you took to install that software. It might be helpful in order to find the culprit. – dawud Jul 15 '13 at 20:30
