#67 GnoCHM displays nothing

gnochm (68)

I've dowloaded a printer's user guide (Hungarian) from Canon and gnochm displays some strange charachters only. In the empty display I tryed to vied the source code of the chm and it displays a correct HTML content with 3 strange chars at the beginning. After this I downloaded the English version of the guide and gnochm still displays nothing.

If I extracted the chm with extract_chmlib and I could view it by a webbrowser.

I was used the gnochm 0.9.11 version from source on Ubuntu Gutsy.

The file location: http://www.humankraft.hu/~rzsolt/upload/MP150-170_Users-Guide_HUN.chm
(too big for upload)

The gnochm.log contains this:

    The CHM file you tried to use is using frames, and for some reason it appears that gtkhtml2 or the python bindings are not notifying my code that the frame html page needs to be loaded. It appears I can't do much on gnochm to fix this. Maybe someone has comments to offer?
