How to Install Freemind in Ubuntu Linux
Freemind is an excellent mind mapping software that is free, open source, and cross platform. I recommend it as a default application in all desktop Linux distributions.
In Ubuntu 9.04, you can easily install freemind from Ubuntu's "Add/Remove" software manager.
- From the "Applications" menu, select "Add/Remove". This will bring up Ubuntu's applications manager.
- Select "All available applications" from the "Show" drop-down menu (located in the top-right corner of the applications manager.
- Type "freemind" in to the search box (top-left) and press <enter> on your keyboard.
- Click the check box next to "freemind" in the top-right pane. You'll then be asked if you want to install it.
- Click the "Install" button.
- Click the "Apply" button.
- Confirm you want to apply the installation by clicking the "Apply" button.
- Authenticate. Type in the your password. If your account has administrator priviliges, Freemind will then be downloaded and installed.
After you install Freemind, you'll find it in the applications menu: Applications > Office > Freemind.
From there, I like to right-click on it, and select "Add this laucher to panel". This puts its "butterfly" icon on the quick launch panel at the top, so that freemind is always a point and click away.
