    Hello,

    I just wanted to try out Freemind, so I grabbed the "binaries for any operating system - max"-archive; I unzipped it into /usr/local/ to find out that inside the archive there's no "freemind-x.y.z" directory, but all files are in the archive's root directory. So everything was cluttered all over /usr/local/.

    While this is a minor annoyance, it still made me angry. And then I saw this link "Did Freemind make you angry?" ...

    My suggestion: In the archive, move all files to a directory called "freemind-x.y.z" with x.y.z being the version.

    With best regards,

    Frederik

      Hi Frederik,

      I have got used to just creating a FM folder and extracting to there. I usually just use Krusader to drag and drop between directories, sounds like you're using the command line.

      I understand the problem though. I use Sun Download Manager and it has a habit of automatically upacking archives, therefore cluttering up my home folder. This happened numerous times before I got round to turning that feature off.

      Regards
      Ryan
