Hi,

Did you try the search option of this forum? It will give you multiple threads dealing with chm files.

Here's just one solution: xchm (sourceforge)

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick replies! You got back before I could get in here and apologize for posting such a common question...

I found this:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...&highlight=chm
about a minute after I posted and I am working on getting kchmviewer working right now...

If you can help me with that I would be grateful. It is telling me
Code:
An error occurred while loading *insert snippet from embedded html stuff*

Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:
 klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'ms-its'.
...any hints? I am working on it right now, but I will post back with the solution if I get it fixed.

Thanks again!

J
