freemind — A Java program for creating and viewing mindmaps.
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!

information on how it finds its different elements, as well
as some other information.

If $JAVACMD is not set, the java virtual machine is searched
JAVA_HOME If $JAVACMD and $JAVA_BINDIR are not set, the java virtual
machine is searched under $JAVA_HOME/bin/java.
PATH If all $JAVA... environment variables fail, the java virtual
machine command (java) is searched in the $PATH (with which).
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
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.
