Here's the deal when using xCHM I noticed that my files open as "source code". Ie you're generic HTML head/body/text type of code.
It says in the FAQ at http://xchm.sourceforge.net/faq.html
Q: xCHM displays the HTML source code of the pages instead of properly rendering it. Can I fix this?
A: That depends. The problem might be that an application such as Crossover Office has already registered the .chm extension in your ~/.mime.types file. Most likely that can be solved by commenting out the relevant lines (this solution has been received from Marcelo Fernandez). "
Checking through there this isn't correct. Commenting out this entry makes no difference.
Commenting out the "type=application/x-crossover-chm \
desc=Compiled HTML Help file \
However if any of these entries aren't commented the problem occurs:
desc=Microsoft Access HTML Document \
desc=Microsoft Access HTML Template \
desc=Microsoft Word HTML Document \
desc=Microsoft Word HTML Template \
desc=Microsoft Excel HTML Document \
desc=Microsoft Excel HTML Template \
In conclusion I'm not sure how these conflict with xCHM. Note I tried executing it also from a console in all attempts, it still affects the way xCHM opens the CHM file.
I think you could have assigned it yourself :)
ryao did you want to take a look at this? If crossover can't display chm files correctly then I don't think it should be installing a mime type for them.
If you need a chm file for testing you can find one at http://dev.gentoo.org/~dirtyepic/pkgs/chm/
any news? Was the ticket assigned correctly?
Are you still hitting this with current versions?
