How to view CHM files on Ubuntu Dapper

in Linux/Tutorial/Ubuntu by

There are many computer books come with CHM format. I like the ability to read these files under my Ubuntu Dapper.

Gnochm is a CHM file viewer. It is designed to integrate nicely with Gnome. Gnochm has some really nice features for viewing chm files.

  1. Nice tool, man.
    Just now that I’m being forced to read CHM files on Windows 2003 Server hosted at the office. Duh!
    Better reading them here at Ubuntu. 😛

  2. Thanks a lot for the tip 🙂 was really a great help as I am new to ubuntu.The official ubuntu book required a chm reader. With your tip I got the Chm reader for ubuntu and will now embark on the “so-much-talked-about-and-is-so-very-exciting” journey of Ubuntu. Thanks once again.

  3. Thanks a lot! I use Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn and GnoCHM is a very good tool to view .chm files. I tried xchm, but it is not so good suitable for russian .chm files, actually I had many problems using xchm. GnoCHM makes reading .chm files simple! I need only to install it.
