Hi,

Use xchm.

Did you google this at all??
This link gives me 65000+ hits.

Hope this helps.

Hi again,

Take a look here: http://xchm.sourceforge.net/download.html

There's, among other chm related things, a link to the chmlib (you need to install this first, xchm needs it).

Hope this gets you going again.

Hey, i think i found something:
Code:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/mandrake/10.0/contrib/i586/xchm-0.8.11-1mdk.i586.html
It's for mandrake, but lower you'll see some files that it might require
