Try texdoc and see if it finds everything.
Or man because man.conf has changed,

I don't think there is anything fundamentally wrong with that.
I did the same and yes  it worked.

I just don't like the so-called innovations in the Gui.
I find most of them tiring to the eyes. I don't like  the dark  
toolbars with unreadable text.
Totally changed behaviour of the Application folder in the dock, the  
impossibility of  using a folder in the Dock with aliases to  
I don't like the weird bugs I encountered. The weird happenings with  
X11; non working Gimp, Gretl.
Most of the eye candy are unnecessary changes. Just Time Machine,  
QuickLook (with a better font for text files) a better Spotlight  
(which doesn't find all files even though they are there; Tiger  
Spotlight finds them), a nicer Finder, which still has some awkward  
things, would have made Leopard a better Tiger.

I didn't switch to Mac for this.
