Make sure you have KDevelop > 3.1 installed. Then among with KDevelop
you will have KDevelop Assistant (kdevassistant) application - a documentation
browser you're looking for.
It can display man/info pages and can search for the documentation in other
sources. Editor context menus in KDevelop IDE should launch KDevelop Assistant
if you configure them to do that.
