This manual page documents briefly the freemind command.
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation as a mindmap (see Help menu in FreeMind).
freemind is a program that allows to create and view so-called mindmaps, as well as export them to HTML or different image formats. It also has a plugin concept to extend its functionality.
This program does not have any option. Just start it!
- If this environment variable is set, freemind gives more information on how it finds its different elements, as well as some other information.
- Default value for the java virtual machine (the java command).
- If $JAVACMD is not set, the java virtual machine is searched under $JAVA_BINDIR/java.
- If $JAVACMD and $JAVA_BINDIR are not set, the java virtual machine is searched under $JAVA_HOME/bin/java.
- If all $JAVA... environment variables fail, the java virtual machine command (java) is searched in the $PATH (with which).
- CLASSPATH ADD_JARS
The $CLASSPATH variable also lets one specify additional jars,
which is good, if you want to add a new Look&Feel jar (the motif one is so ugly...). Alternatively, the content of $ADD_JARS will be prepended to $CLASSPATH.
- Directory where FreeMind searches for its plugins and libraries
- /etc/freemind/freemindrc ~/.freemind/freemindrc
freemind tries to read its environment variables from
/etc/freemind/freemindrc and ~/.freemind/freemindrc, so that specific settings are possible at machine and user level.
If all searches through environment variables fail, the
java virtual machine is expected to be /usr/bin/java; if not,
freemind exits with an error.
