I´ve all my thinkings and overwievs with this tool. I use it for all. Is amazing for a good job organization and reminder!!! Good joob, go on the line, please ...
it's tricky to install this Freemind 0.9 into the Linux. After install the SRC package download from the path, It can't run the FreeMind with "freemind.sh". It always show error message "Couldn't find freemind under .". After checking the "freemind.sh", we find there is a file "freemind.jar" missing in the "./lib" directory. So, I copy a "freemind.jar" file from my PC Window which already install the FreeMind 0.9 into the linux "./lib" directory. Finally, it can work now! So, could you please add this "freemind.jar" file into your release SRC package?
Unfortunately it doesn't have top-bottom diagrams, and for this only reason I have to use the non open source xmind. Hope to see this option sooner or later... I'm checking for it once in a while.
I had Freemind a number of years ago, I had the disc as well, got it off ebay in about 2008. But I gave it to my team leader so she could learn how to use it. So I have only just started using it again. I have to say I am happy with it as free software it works well and I can get on with it.
Good thing there are some documentation because this is my first time using a mindmapping software. Finally replacing pen and paper, so i still need to get used to it, overall its pretty easy to follow and use if you just have patience
FreeMind is an excellent open-source mind map. I've been using it for years to manage my research and writing projects.
Very easy to use, arranges things very well. Can be a bit glitchy.
