    This program did the hands-down best job of handling the complex chm file that I threw at it. My wish: that there would be not just a rpm file to download at sourceforge, but a deb file, better yet for 64-bit. Otherwise, the Linux Mint repository version is good, just typically lagging behind the version available here.
