Installing Freemind or Freeplane

Post by Sietske » Mon Feb 19, 2018 6:21 am

Hello everyone,

I was trying to install freemind, but I still didn't manage to get it running yet. I did find another topic about this, it said you had to extract the file and give permission to the sh file to get it running. I did that and clicked on running the programm, but nothing seems to happen yet. Does anyone have advice what to do next?

PS: I'm a newbie who's not really good at ICT, so please explain step by step.

Thank you in advance!

FreeMind seems to be an abandoned project since a few years ago. I'd suggest instead to use FreePlane, which is touted as "a redesigned version of the well known FreeMind, and is created by one of FreeMind's key developers."

To install FreePlane just open Software Manager from your menu (it's found in the sidebar or in the administration category), search for FreePlane in that (search field is in upper right of Software Manager's window) and click on it in the search results to go to its details and you can click the install button there to install it.

In general I would recommend you install programs through Software Manager.
