Deciding 3-colorability for general plane graphs is
known to be an NP-complete problem. However, for
certain classes of plane graphs, like triangulations,
polynomial time algorithms exist. We consider the
family of pseudo-triangulations (a generalization of
triangulations) and prove NP-completeness for this
class. The complexity status does not change if the
maximum face-degree is bounded to four, or pointed
pseudo-triangulations with maximum face degree five
are treated. As a complementary result, we show
that for pointed pseudo-triangulations with maximum
