View chm in [X]Ubuntu

Microsoft Compiled HTML Help is a Microsoft proprietary online help format, that consists of a collection of HTML pages and an index. Files in this format are known as CHM files.

There are a few options to open this format in Xubuntu: FBReader, xChm and ChmSee. My preference goes to FBReader mainly because it supports other file formats (ePub, fb2, chm, rtf, plucker...).

Install - FBReader

Open a terminal window and run:

sudo apt-get install fbreader

Install - xChm

Open a terminal window and run:

sudo apt-get install xchm

Install - ChmSee

Open a terminal window and run:

sudo apt-get install chmsee
