chm file type on linux

I use linux exclusively now and I have found that so far I have not come across a microsoft incursion I could not fix.

Here is one problem I will share with you.

.chm files, these are microsoft format and initially presented a problem. I am an avid fan of IT eBooks on this site there are a huge array of progeamming books for FREE, don't you just love that word.

Anyway some of their books I discovered were formated not in the usual .pdf but in .chm. Oh no I have a microsoft file on my computer and it will not open.

Solution: Konqueror

Open the terminal/command line and type in the following.

Enjoy using the amazing versatile program.

Linux wins again.
