XMind Fedora 30 - Setting Up

  1. Next to Install XMind Dependencies for Fedora

    sudo /tmp/setup.sh
  2. And to Setup XMind on Fedora
    Locally for 64bit:

    mv /tmp/xmind $HOME/XMind

    And Full System:

    sudo mv /tmp/xmind /opt/XMind
  3. Give Execution Permissions to the configurarion Directory
    Rispectivelly:

    chmod +x $HOME/XMind/XMind_amd64/configuration

    Or:

    sudo chmod +x /opt/XMind/XMind_amd64/configuration
  4. Edit Configuration File
    Here I Show only for the Global Setup, for the Local Amend the Commands consequently…
    So now to Amend with the ‘nano’ Editor do:

    sudo nano /opt/XMind/XMind_amd64/XMind.ini

    Then Change Line 2 as:

    /opt/XMind/XMind_amd64/configuration

    Again on Line 4 Set:

    /home/[Username]/workspace

    Change [Username] with the Output of this Command:

    whoami

    Ctrl + x to Save & Exit from nano Editor ;)

  5. Follow Setting Up Fonts
    This is Valid either for Local than System.
    So First Make the Directory with:

    sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/truetype/xmind

    Now Copy Fonts:

    sudo cp -R /opt/XMind/fonts/* /usr/share/fonts/truetype/xmind/
    

    Finally, Refresh the Font Cache:

    sudo fc-cache -f
  6. Again Make a Shortcut
    For 64-bit and Local Setup:

    echo "$HOME/XMind/XMind_amd64/XMind" >> $HOME/.bashrc

    Instead for a System Wide:

    sudo ln -s /opt/XMind/XMind_amd64/XMind /usr/local/bin/
