freemind.sh not found


I downloaded a program called freemind from sourceforge

the installation instructions told me to unzip the file and open freemind.sh

double-clicking on freemind.sh, the following error message appears:

Couldn't find the program 'freemind.sh'

I've downloaded and installed the J2 RE that it needs to run...and I've changed the file permissions

what have I done wrong?

thanks

Try going through a console, type

sh freemind.sh

thanks leonscape

doing that, it now tells me

freemind.sh: line 3: java: command not found

I know I've installed JRE so it should be able to find the java command right?

It's probably not in your path, Sun sticks java in a wierd place, for no good reason as far as I can see.

Try looking in /usr/java/jre1.4.1_01/bin or something like that, I don't use java anymore so my memory is a bit vague.... try "updatedb; locate java" as well....
