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.

Install Freemind

  1. From the "Applications" menu, select "Add/Remove". This will bring up Ubuntu's applications manager.
  2. Select "All available applications" from the "Show" drop-down menu (located in the top-right corner of the applications manager.
  3. Type "freemind" in to the search box (top-left) and press <enter> on your keyboard.
  4. Click the check box next to "freemind" in the top-right pane. You'll then be asked if you want to install it.
  5. Click the "Install" button.
  6. Click the "Apply" button.
  7. Confirm you want to apply the installation by clicking the "Apply" button.
  8. 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.
