Dont know what distro you are using but on my Slack 12 , I Downloaded http://repository.slacky.eu/slackwar...9-i486-2bj.tgz then got http://repository.slacky.eu/slackwar...-i486-1mch.tgz also got http://repository.slacky.eu/slackwar...-i486-1mch.tgz for back up and the grass is always green when I have *.chm files.

if youre really stuck you might even try chm2pdf which even though i have I dont even use.

[I ALSO DONT HAVE AN INTERNET ON MY LINUX BOX]

Would you please tell?
(No internet connection in linux.)
Go to the place where u downloaded this file. Now run

Quote:
#rpm -Uvh gnochm-0.9.11-1.rf.src.rpm

#cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS

#rpmbuild -bb gnochm.spec

#cd cd ../RPMS/i386
Now you have the required rpm here. installed it.
Quote:
#rpm -ivh xxxxxyour.rpm
If any error appear then leave the process because u dont have Internet connection. And download the kchmviewer
directly.
no more hassle.
and install it.

you went from fedora8 to 10 ? right?
just use yum "kchmviewer" is for the KDE desktop
fedora installs only gnome by default .You will have needed to install kde during install .
-- for the KDE desktop --
Code:
su -
( your root password when asked)
yum search kchmviewer
 -- then if found in the list run --
yum install kchmviewer
-- for the GNOME desktop
Code:
yum install gnochm

Any other way(short time).
if your internet connection is so slow( 56k - dial-up )
then no.
you would need to download the *.rpm and all of its dependencies first then use " rpm " to install them
the same file is used for fedora 10
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ew/gnochm.html
also make sure that this list is installed they are REQUIRED
from
yum deplist gnochm
------
python
python-chm
pygtk2-libglade
yelp
gnome-python2-canvas
rarian-compat
GConf2
gnome-python2-gconf
gnome-python2-gtkhtml2

Pls.......................
If your internet connection speed is slow How can yum download quick?
Its better to use yum for downloading any software because sometimes some software arise dependencies for other software OR library file. in this case yum can resolved all dependencies and install correctly.

Though if you want to download manually Go to there download section.

gnochm


All package for Fedora 10

I found gnochm and kchmviewer here:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...6/os/Packages/

I use Fedora 10.
Can I use
kchmviewer-4.0-0.2.beta2.fc9.i386.rpm
or
gnochm-0.9.11-2.fc9.noarch.rpm
for Fedora 10?

If no problem then
would you please tell me how to install and run this?

kchmviewer
if you already have all of these installed
an excerpt from
Code:
 
 yum deplist kchmviewer  

qt-x11
kde-filesystem
libgcc
libstdc++
glibc
qt
bash
chmlib
to check run
Code:
su -
rpm -qa | grep qt-x11
and repeat for the list

and for gnochm
SEE: post 22 above
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post3360178

with a 28k/56k dial-up the easiest way is to run
Code:
yum install kchmviewer
or
Code:
yum install gnochm
then go to bed .
and have it download and install while you are asleep
or from a different machine with dsl/cable
burn ALL of the dependencies that are not already installed ,and the program ,to a dvd
then cpoy the dvd to the linux box and use "yum localinstall ???????"
or rpm to install the program
for instructions on yum
SEE:
Code:
yum --help
-- and --
man yum
for rpm SEE:
Code:
rpm --help
-- and --
man rpm
