N.B.: This is the old post. If you want to install the latest FSL (5.0.10 and later), you need to use fslinstaller.py.
If you use Debian or Ubuntu, you can install FSL easily using neurodebian repository.
Below is what you need to install FSL.
- Add the neurodebian repository
- update the sources.list
- install FSL (and related packages)
- Add the following line to .bashrc
Follow the guideline described here.
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install fsl fsl-doc fslview fslview-doc fsl-atlases fsl-possum-data fsl-first-data fsl-feeds dicomnifti libvtk5-dev vtk-examples vtk-doc
This is the thing people often forget. Without this, you can’t run fsl from shell.
