Ubuntu 9.10 Reading chm files Installing Google Earth
Ubuntu 9.10 (pronounced Ooboontoo, I found out) has links to four viewers in it's Main Menu under Ubuntu Software Center: Free Software. ChmSee and xCHM are the best. Scroll down to ChmSee, for instance, double click on it and a window opens. You can click on install at the bottom and it downloads and installs. automatically.
To use it, you can right click on a chm file and choose it under Open With, if it isn't already there at the top. It is also placed in the Main Menu under Accessories.
I updated to Ubuntu 9.10 from Ubuntu 3.10. It's an option under Update Manager in 3.10 and maybe your version too.
Also to install Google Earth: download the file, right click, choose Open With, then Other Application and at the bottom click on Use A Custom Command. Type in sh and enter. It installs automatically.
If you have trouble reading the fonts in Google Earth, try updating your video card driver in Update Manager to a newer one.
