    Hello,

    I would like some help with the installation of FreeMind on my Ubuntu system please.  First thing I did was install JRE from synaptic.  Then I downloaded the latest release candidate.  I gunzipped the file and used tar -xvf to extract it. I found the freemind.sh file, but when chmoded it with 777 and then tried to run it with ./freemind.sh it didn't work.

    I'm not a systems guy so I'm sure I'm missing something.  Can some one give me so steps to follow for installing and running on Ubuntu 9.10 server with Ubuntu desktop installed?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Thanks Eric,

    I was going to try your suggestion, then I found the following link for a

    .deb package of the .9 RC 4 release of FreeMind !

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    Thanks to daqron in post # 5 here:
