Groupware made easy


Article from Issue 79/2007

Small workgroups often rely on email as their primary collaboration tool because many groupware solutions require time and expertise to install and configure, and extensive feature sets can be overkill. Mindquarry collaboration
software aims to solve these problems.

Mindquarry is an appealing proposition for users who need an easy to install and use collaboration solution. Mindquarry is written in Java, which means that you have to install Java Runtime Environment on the machine that will act as a Mindquarry server. Once you’ve done that, download the binary installer of the Mindquarry software for your platform. (On Linux, you can choose between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions.) Next, you open the terminal and run the installer as root. The installer checks to see whether all the required packages are present, and you will be prompted to install any that are missing. During the installation, you will be asked to provide a few configuration settings, like an installation directory, a name for your Mindquarry server, etc.
