Ubuntu CHM viewer - Ubuntu Forums

Ubuntu CHM - Ubuntu Forums

If you ever come across a file with the extension of .chm, it is an extension called Microsoft Compiled HTML Help.

From Wikipedia,

Help is delivered as a binary file with the .chm. It contains a set of HTML files, a hyperlinked table of contents, and an index file.

CHM files are sometimes used for e-books.

I downloaded an ebook with this file extension. You can download from few Ubuntu .chm readers. Simply type "chm" into the Ubuntu Software Center and install one of the choices. I chose xCHM. Apparently Okular has a backend you can install called libCHM, but I could not get it to work.
