Now that Christmas and holiday season are over, we all have to get back to work again. XMind team hopes all of our customers have had a great holiday season.

For many of us, the vision of getting back to work after holiday sessions and the reality usually have very little in common. While many of us expect to sit down at our desks after time away filled with boundless energy and restored creativity, what usually ends up happening is that we spend several scattered hours falling further behind on tasks built up in the interim.  (Read More…)

UI does not work properly in Ubuntu 16.04

Posted on November 11th, 2016 in FAQ | 53 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

or

$ SWT_GTK3=0 ./XMind
