I just installed Freemind from fedora repository on my fedora21 system and receive the following error which points to my knowledge to a missing graphical environment - but I'm using the standard Mate setup...

You were close. This seems to be, not that your environment is non-graphical, but that your Java Runtime Environment was installed without support for connecting to one.

pkcon install java-1.8.0-openjdk will install the full (with graphics) build of Java.

(You can also use sudo dnf install java-1.8.0-openjdk in a terminal; pkcon will prompt for your password on the Desktop; sudo will prompt in the Terminal.)
