FREEMIND

Quote:
A mind mapper, and at the same time an easy-to-operate hierarchical editor with strong emphasis on folding. These two are not really two different things, just two different descriptions of a single application. Often used for knowledge and content mgmt.


the package has java as a dependency. You can find it in the download page. It is named cgj-jre-4-4-4-3-lucid.pet

- To run the program follow these step-by-step instructions:
+ download and install java by clicking on the pet package
+ with a text editor open the file /etc/profile and add the following two lines:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin

+ restart X
+ install freemind by clicking on the pet package
+ open a terminal and type `freemind' without quotation marks

tested with Lupu 5.1, 5.2.5
it does not run with puppy 4.x or Wary 5

Arrow download freemind-0-9-0.pet

I don't know where cgj-jre-4-4-4-3-lucid.pet is, but this java sfs, posted by TheAsterisk!, should work fine, (saved to /mnt/home, then reboot):

http://content.wuala.com/contents/puppylinux/version2013/jre-1.6u25/jre-1.6u25-i586.sfs?dl=1

If you have problems with this, please post back.

hi Marcelo,

I've tested freemind-0-9-0-lucid.pet with a brand new lupu 5.2.5 and it runs just fine with the instructions written in the main post.

are there any errors when you launch the program in a terminal Question

Hi Ariel!

I didn't try to launch it because I wasn't able to install it. I downloaded it, PPM asked if I want to install, I hit Install, and at the end there was a PPM message saying it couldn't install it.

Meantime I installed freemind using this method and it works OK, so I don't think I will be testing your pet again soon.

If it worked well for you may be the problem is machine dependent or some other variable... I don't know.

I very much appreciate your effort Ariel, I see you installed lupu to test the pet and I know how time and effort consuming this is. Sorry I cannot follow up now Embarassed . Thanks again.

@ Marcelo: I suspect your package was corrupted. did you check md5sum?


I've uploaded a script to open files linked inside freemind as xdg-open doesn't work properly in several puppies. see main post.

Great news Very Happy. I was frustrated for not being able to open links to files. Need to go to work now but I'll try it soon.

Hi Ariel,

Finally I was able to try your freemind.pet in Lucid 5.2.8, which I installed lately. I installed the pet following your instructions in the OP (with the Java SFS added by muggins though) and everything went smoothly and well.

I also tried your script openfile.sh and yes, it worked no problem.

Only this instruction in the OP...
Quote:
you can add other programs provided you add the extension of the file you want to launch (last 3 characters)

...is completely cryptic until one thinks of opening the script and have a look at it.

So, just to help other users who may want to use your pet and script:

This is the script:
Code:
ext=`echo "$@" | sed 's/.*\(...\)$/\1/'`

if [ "$ext" == pdf ] ; then defaultpdfviewer "$@"
elif [ "$ext" == txt ] ; then abiword "$@"
elif [ "$ext" == tml ] ; then firefox "$@"
elif [ "$ext" == abw ] ; then abiword "$@"
fi

As you can see it includes only 4 types of file and three programs to open them (abiword opens .abw as well as .txt files). You can add other programs provided you add the extension of the file you want to launch (last 3 characters).

Thanks again for the script Ariel, very useful indeed!
