Dia is a fantastic Diagram tool that runs natively on linux. With it you can create some very pretty and logical diagrams very quick – if you know what you’re doing. To be honest though, when I had first started it, I hated the fact that it had floating panes everywhere. So I would instead use umbrello since it was a little more polished and was a UML tool.
There were times though that I would like to draw other diagrams:
- Data flow diagrams
- Entity Relationship Diagram
- Flow charts
- Random ad-hoc diagrams
How do I run Dia in Integrated / single window mode?
easy. Just launch dia with the –integrated option from your terminal.
$ dia –intergrated
Great! Now I can be a lot more effective with Dia.
