chm reader needed.


Hi, I'm using RedHat EL 4 and I've just found out that I can't view chm documents with it. Is there any chm reader available so I can view chm documents on RedHat? I'll appreciate it if any of you can recommend a few.

(Google is your friend)

This search does not tell me what is a "chm document" (or why I would care), but I would start with the Firefox plugin.

One thing that may help you get answers really quick is to use the LQ search function before starting a new thread because many questions have already been answered in the past.

The most popular chm readers are xchm, gnochm and kchmviewer.

Hi, just to add to what is here, the program

Okular (pdf and other file viewer) displays .chm files nicely.

Regards, Glenn
