Filed under: Ubuntu — egoleo @ 10:51 pm

I had some tutorials from a friend. But all the files were having a .chm extension. so i couldn’t view them with my linux system. i decided to google and i realised that it was a micrsoft format. But i also found out that i can have a similar program to view thm on linux. The package name is XCHM.

how to install chm == xchm on ubuntu anddebian.

sudo apt-get install xchm.

    Package xchm is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package xchm has no installation candidate

  2. Check your /etc/apt/source.list and make sure u add this line
    ## PLF REPOSITORY (Unsupported. May contain illegal packages. Use at own risk.)
    deb http://packages.freecontrib.org/plf dapper free non-free
    deb-src http://packages.freecontrib.org/plf dapper free non-free

    after that do
    sudo apt-get update
