UI does not work properly in Ubuntu 16.04

Posted on November 11th, 2016 in FAQ | 41 Comments »

Currently, we encounter UI issues under the latest Ubuntu. Some reports include but not limit to

  • Opens a file –> editor is blank
  • Make modifications to the map –> no notification to save on closing editor

XMind: v3.7.0.201611010032
OS: Ubuntu 16.04

This issue seems to be related with Eclipse SWT’s GTK3 support. Discussions on this kind of issues have been made at Eclipse’s bug tracking site since early 2016. We will track on this and see what we could do.

There is currently a workaround for this by setting an environment variable SWT_GTK3=0 before launching XMind. For Ubuntu users, please refer to this community help for how to set environment variables.

The simplest solution would be to append a line export SWT_GTK3=0 to the end of the ~/.profile file.

Or, if you start XMind from command line, please use

$ export SWT_GTK3=0
$ ./XMind


$ SWT_GTK3=0 ./XMind

XMind is the best alternative to NovaMind

Posted on August 17th, 2016 in Promotion | No Comments »

The company that has been developing NovaMind is being shut down. NovaMind users may be wondering what is the best alternative to NovaMind?

Without doubt, XMind is the best alternative for NovaMind. Like NovaMind, XMind is a cross-platform mind mapping tool, which supports Windows, Mac and Linux. Based on the Eclipse platform, XMind ensures the consistent interaction on both Windows and Mac. Consistency in cross-platform interfaces allows users to leverage their existing knowledge of an interface on one platform to make use of a similar application interface on a different one. What’s more, XMind for Mac has all the same features of XMind for Windows, while some Mac mind mapping tools have very limited features compared to its Windows version.

This year we published XMind 7.5 with XMind Cloud. XMind Cloud supports online editing, which allows you to access, view, and edit your mind maps wherever you go — from a phone, a tablet, or any computer. And XMind for iOS is coming this Fall.

Now, we offer 30% discount for NovaMind users who want to use XMind Pro. This offer is valid only before end of September. Don’t miss out on this limited-time offer!
