On my laptop, after installing the Java environment from Hoary-extras I
was able to install the FreemMind .deb package perfectly.  It runs fine
without the menus going funny.

I'll try the same on my desktop but first I have to work out how to
remove the Java environment I installed using the download from  Does it all live in a clearly identified directory or will
the install program have scattered files all over the computer?
