What it is
Freeplane is free and open source software to support thinking, sharing information and getting things done at work, in school and at home. The core of the software consists of functions for mind mapping, also called concept mapping or information mapping, and tools for using mapped information. Freeplane runs very well on OS/2 or eComStation with the current version of Java. Freeplane has its origin in problems with the popular open source mind mapping program Freemind.
Download the zip file freeplane_bin-1.3.15.zip. Open in FC/2 the zip file and you will see the directory "freeplane-1.3.15". Copy the directory as "freeplane" to an appropriate place on your hard drive. Next go to the directory and delete the files freeplane.bat, freeplane.exe, freeplane.sh, freeplaneConsole.exe and freeplaneIcons.dll. In this way all strange excutable files can't do harm. Version 1.5.xx needs Java version 1.7 due to some changes with features not found in Java 1.6.
The used cmd file
The latest stable version runs well in Open JDK, however starting up the package needs some attention. I have a freeplane.cmd created with the following contents;
@echo off set CLASSPATH= set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive: freeplane] CD [drive: freeplane]\freeplane javaw -Xmx640m -Duser.home=[drive: freeplane]\freeplane -Dorg.freeplane.userfpdir=.\Freeplane -jar freeplanelauncher.jar %1 2>freeplanebugs.txtI had to break up the line "javaw...", in the commandfile they are one line, mind the space between "-jar" and "freeplanelauncher.jar". I use 2 separate partitions, one for Java and one for Freeplane itself with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Save the file and rename it to freeplane.cmd. This file is copied to the freeplane directory. Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: freeplane]\freeplane\freeplane.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Freeplane".
Parameters / options explained
In the file the command file, all drive letters are set to C:, and an OS/2 Freeplane icon: FreeplaneOS2
