[Linux, Mint, Ubuntu] Update FreeMind the Lazy Way...

The latest version of FreeMind in the Ubuntu repositories as of this writing is 0.9, which is quite old.  But, there is an easy way to get the latest version, use a 3rd party repo.

See here:
wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb trusty-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

After this, do:

sudo apt-get update

and finally:

wskellenger@marquette ~ $ sudo apt-get install freemind
