Mindmapping tool
  16 reviews

Vym is a mind mapping program. It is useful to organize thoughts and do structure work. In addition to that it has a lot of helpful shortcuts.

A mindmap is a multicolored and image centered radial diagram that represents semantic or other connections between portions of learned material. For example, it can graphically illustrate the structure of a thesis outline, a project plan, or the government institutions in a state. Mindmaps have many applications in personal, family, educational, and business situations. Possibilities include note-taking, brainstorming, summarizing, revising and general clarifying of thoughts.

Now updated with alien, before using one from repo - same problem. It's easy to build a mindmap, but it ogt only bad export options. By Exporting to png or pdf i got bad quality (2nd +3rd grade subbranches weren't sharp), so i can't use the mindmaps for any documents. For me it was wasted time trying this one....

I've now forgotten why I kept this program over the other mindmappers out there, but when I actually need it for work, I'm finding more and more frustrating to get it work right consistently. My windows machine has the latest version, but I'm unable to get the latest version of vym to work on mint 20.1 using alien to convert (gives me "missing whatever" file) -- so I used the older one from the repository. At first I only got a warning about the maps being created with the later version may not work right, but they did. Now the problem I'm having is when I want to use my linux laptop to open ANY of .vym files, they are reading as 'archives' and VYM won't open them. Screw this program and screw the guy's website that looks like it was created by a water-headed highschool student in the 80s.

Very outdated package. The author has .rpm files for download. Use 'alien' to convert them to .deb & install.
