Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Freeplane is a free, open-source software application for creating diagrams of connections between ideas (mind maps). Among others, it has support for exporting to PNG, JPEG, SVG, HTML, XHTML and PDF, has find/replace features in all the open maps and contains an integrated spell checker. Also, the users can paste HTML as note structure.
The latest version availalbe is Freeplane 1.3.12, which has been released a while ago.
In this article I will show you how to install Freeplane 1.3.12 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via the GetDeb repository, installing Freeplane 1.3.12 on Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa and the key to your system, update the local repository index and install the urbanterror package. Like this:
$ wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu precise-getdeb games" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install freeplane
Optional, to remove urbanterror, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove freeplane
