Freeplane, NetBeans and Scilab

OpenSource For You - - FOR U & ME LET’S TRY -

Be­cause the soft­ware repos­i­to­ries are a bit out­dated, it can be in­ter­est­ing to down­load the lat­est ver­sion di­rectly from the de­vel­op­ers’ web­site for some ap­pli­ca­tions. Pre­sented here are three ex­am­ples.

Freeplane is an in­ter­est­ing Java based mind map­ping soft­ware. Down­load the lat­est ver­sion freeplane_bin-1.3.15.zip from https://source­forge.net/projects/freeplane, un­pack it in your home di­rec­tory and then run it us­ing /home/[your-user­name]/ freeplane-1.3.15/freeplane.sh. See the top part of Fig­ure 4 ( Set­tings > Menu edi­tor > Add launcher). The ap­pli­ca­tion icon is /home/[your-user­name]/freeplane-1.3.15/freeplane.svg.

A Java Devel­op­ment Kit must be in­stalled be­fore NetBeans. An easy way is to in­stall open­jdk-7-jdk from the Soft­ware man­ager. The last ver­sion for Linux net­beans8.1-linux.sh can be down­loaded from https://netbeans.org/ down­loads. The in­stal­la­tion in­volves the fol­low­ing two steps from the ter­mi­nal: But it’s pos­si­ble to in­stall jEdit 5.3.1 (a devel­op­ment trunk). Down­load jedit5.3.1in­stall. jar from http://www. tel­luri­an­ring.com/projects/jedit-daily and then in­stall it from the ter­mi­nal with java - jar jedit5.3.1in­stall. jar. To run it, sim­ply use java -jar /home/[your-user­name]/jEdit/5.3.1/ jedit. jar (see Fig­ure 4, bot­tom). The icon is /home/[you­ruser­name]/jEdit/5.3.1/doc/jedit.png. If you have your own syn­tax-high­light­ing file, you can add it in the modes di­rec­tory /home/[your-user­name]/.jedit/modes. In this case, you must also add a row to the cat­a­logue file, for ex­am­ple:
