how to view .chm files in linux


hi

is there any software to view .chm files. i tried xchm and gnochm but they didnt install. the error i got was failed dependencies libchm.so.0 and libchm. then i installed libchm.so.0 but i could not find libchm.

so i could not install the above mentioned software. also kchmview is out of question because i dont use KDE.

please help me out.

Hello and welcome to LQ. Unlike other fora here we have some simple rules. For instance please post your own questions in your own thread. That way it gets the attention it deserves. Next to that please fill in your OS details and such so your fellow LQ members know how to answer your questions qualitatively better (or so I hope ;-p) By reading the above posts you now know you need to (use your package manager to) install GnoCHM or Kchmviewer. If you do not know how to use your distributions package manager please read the accompanying book(let) or online docs. Once you have GnoCHM or Kchmviewer installed they should have added themselves as as default application to open .chm files with. If that's not the case you'll have to set the association in your filemanager.
