freemind not working


Installed freemind on my Debian Lenny system (via aptitude), and then tried to run it. However, I got the following error:

Code:
mark@debian:~$ freemind

Looking for user properties:
/home/mark/.freemind/user.properties

User properties found.
Default (System) Look & Feel: javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel
Warning: the font you have set as standard - null - is not available.

/usr/bin/freemind: line 118:  4436 Aborted                 ${JAVACMD} freemind.main.FreeMind $@
mark@debian:~$
Anyone know how I can fix this?

The messages up to and including the internal warnings are normal. The abort is not.

I tested out freemind using the Sun Java runtime engine under Lenny, and it started okay. However, under the Java runtime engine gij (which I seem to recall is the default) it appears to hang (I haven't investigated why this is).

To install the Sun Java engine, add non-free to the repositories and get the packages sun-java6-bin, sun-java6-fonts, and sun-java6-plugin. Then run 'update-alternatives --config java' to select the default Java engine.
