    Hi there,
    I am running Freemind 9.0 on Kubuntu 12.10, and the preferences are not displaying when I select "Preferences" in the Tools menu. I have seen an older thread from 2007, I assume that much has changed since then, but my problem is the same.
    I was running the same version of Freemind in Kubuntu 12.04 without any issues.
    My java version is 1.7.0_21
    Any suggestion as to what to do to get Preferences back?
    Many thanks,

     
  • Hi, can you please try V1.0.0RC4. TIA, Chris

    Thanks Chris. I downloaded V1.0RC4, and when I try to run it (sh 'freemind.sh' from within the directory where I extracted the tar file - I changed the permissions on freemind.sh to make it executable) I get the following error: ERROR: Couldn't find freemind under '.'.
    Any suggestions as to what to try next?
    Many thanks,
    Francois

     
  • Hi,

    dull question: did you download the bin_max package, or the sources? If you downloaded the sources, you can choose "ant run" instead.

    HTH, Chris

    I downloaded the freemind-src-1.0.0_RC_4.tar.gz package. Should I download the freemind-bin-max-1.0.0_RC_4.zip package instead?
    Thanks,
    F.

     
  • Yes, Chr.

    Thanks Chris, it works now, including preferences.
