Issues in running the Freemind Package

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


When I have seen the freemind package, I tried to install it and installation was fine.

But when I wanted to run freemind it gave me the following message:

$ freemind
looking for user properties:

User properties found.
Default (System) Look & Feel:

*Gtk-ERROR **: GTK+ 2.x symbols detected. Using GTK+ 2.x and GTK+ 3 in the same process is not supported*
What is the reason of this error?

I realized that this error is related to gnome3 or gkt3, but I don’t know much about this error message.

Please help.

Issues in running the Freemind Package


FreeMind is a free mind-mapping application that is written in Java. And because it is written in Java, it requires a Java Runtime component to work. If this component is missing in your system, you won’t be able to use this software.

You did not post any information if you have already installed any Java component in your computer so I’m assuming that you are not aware of FreeMind’s system requirements.

To be able to run FreeMind, you need to install Java Runtime Environment 1.4 or later versions.

You can download an installer of FreeMind which already includes a Java Runtime component 

Or directly download it from here.

FreeMind 0.9.0 was released last year, February 19, 2011. You can read the overview of its features.

FreeMind 1.0.0 Beta is the latest and was released this February 16, 2012. You can find its download link.

Just double – click Freemind.exe to run FreeMind or framing. jar located in lib folder in FreeMind’s installation directory.
