Any updates on this one? Freeplane turned out to be too basic for my needs and I think Xmind is a viable solution.

The only build instructions involve using Eclipse. Obviously, that doesn't work for our build process. I've been trying to sort out how to do it with maven, but haven't had any luck.

When I sit down to package again, I will see if I missed anything. However, there is a strong chance this will be rejected in the end.

With that in mind, you can also download a prebuilt version from their website, unpack, and run (just tested that it works).

Just Follow these steps to get XMind working while we wait for an official build -

1- Download the latest release name and unpack it.
2- mkdir /opt/xmind
3- Copy/Move "XMind_amd64" folder to newly created folder "/opt/xmind"
4- cd /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64
5 - Make a shell script xmind - > nano xmind and copy the following

!/bin/bash

cd /opt/xmind/XMind_amd64
./XMind

6- Next you'll need to download a xmind logo picture, which has to be copied under /usr/share/pixmaps
7- Create a xmind.desktop launcher under /usr/share/applications
8- Copy the following

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0

Icon=xmind.png

I had some permission problems leaving the sources in /opt/xmind. It works if you use something like $HOME/opt instead and, consequently, modifying the xmins.sh script to point there. I'm really not a expert, so maybe its not the best idea, but works nicely.
