Installing FreeMind

FreeMind is written in Java, so it will run on almost any system with a Java runtime environment.

In order to make things easier for you, we've prepared installers for the most common desktop environments: Windows, Linux and Macintosh OS X. You may choose a minimum install that gives you only the basic FreeMind package or a maximum install, which includes plugins for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), Portable Document Format (PDF), reminders and help files.

System requirements

  • Java Runtime Environment 1.4 or 1.5; not 1.6 in version FreeMind 0.8.0.
  • You can find Java on Sun's site.
    • NOTE: 0.8.0 has some bugs when run with Java 1.6. You can download the older version Java Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 14 (you need the JRE, not the JDK). However, this link may not work, even after LogIn to sun.com.
  • About 13MB of Hard Disk space for the full version, including all the plug-ins.
  • At least 512MB of Memory. More memory is better, especially if you will be creating large mind maps.
