Description:

A KDE thumbnail generator for the CHM file format. It depends on CHMlib http://www.jedrea.com/chmlib/.
Since 0.2.1 release it works with KDE Frameworks 5, for KDE 4 just keep using 0.2 stable release.

Tested with a limited set of CHM files. It should work with standard compliant documents (http://www.nongnu.org/chmspec/latest/).

Once installed go to Configure Dolphin -> General -> Previews and select CHM documents.

awesome - I've been playing with chm and this works nicely. Any chance you can get it in KDE Graphics or wherever it makes sense? ;-)

I'm happy it works for you too!
I'm just an user who tries to learn, the code isn't good enough for a similar chance. But I like the idea, maybe in future i'll try to understand how the proposal process works :)

some chm documents do not have cover image, but they have a html start page.
it makes sense to render this html as its thumbnail, doesn't it?

thanks for your work anyway :)

Thank you - working fine with the Kubuntu 12.04.
With the "older" Kubuntu (11.10) the mime type needs fixing. The last year Kubuntu model is using: application/x-chm i.e. chmthumbnail.desktop: "MimeType=application/vnd.ms-htmlhelp;application/x-chm;"
