How to install XMind in Solus?
XMind is not there in Solus repository and probably will not reach soon. There is already a package request and its got rejected
But you can easily run it using the prebuilt binary available in the official website.
Download the latest version from http://www.xmind.net/download/linux/
Now unpack the archive using archive manager. Double click on the file named “XMind” in the folder “XMind_amd64”
Its based on java. So be sure to install open jdk via software center before running it.
XMind is based on Java as said. So install jdk of your choice first
Extract the package and rename that folder to xmind
Move the folder to /opt/
sudo mv xmind /opt/xmind
Create soft link /usr/bin/xmind
sudo ln -sf /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64/XMind /usr/bin/xmind
Download icon for xmind
sudo wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/xmindnet/blog/en/new_branding_new_logo -O /usr/share/icons/xmind.png
Create link in Applications
sudo echo -e '[Desktop Entry]\n Version=1.0\n Name=Xmind\n Exec=xmind\n Icon=/usr/share/icons/xmind.png\n Type=Application\n Categories=Office' | sudo tee /usr/share/applications/xmind.desktop
Make xmind.desktop executable
sudo chmod +x /usr/share/applications/xmind.desktop
Configure Xmind.ini to solve ecclipse error
sudo gedit "/opt/xmind/XMind_amd64/XMind.ini"
and copy the below lines and over-write the content of .ini file
-configuration /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64/./configuration -data /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64/../workspace -startup /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64/../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.200.v2016031$ --launcher.library /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64/../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64$ --launcher.defaultAction openFile -vmargs -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8
But i will suggest to go with freeplane because it is already in default repository, consume 300-600MB less memory than XMind on Solus OS and it provide more functionality[export to pdf]
If you want to view see .mm file on your android then download Mindjet Maps.
I usually sync all my .mm file to dropbox. You can also use it with zotero if you are interested in research work.
If you want to add addons then go here http://freeplane.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Add-ons
