Installation of Scalismo Lab

Welcome to Scalismo Lab! In this environment simple Scalismo programming can be done, with no Integrated Development Environment (IDE) required.

This document will guide you through the installation procedure.

Where to get the latest version of the tool:

Scalismo Lab is available as an executable Java jar (with a dataset), and is downloadable here.

Note: it is possible that the version of Scalismo we used for this course differs a little bit from the latest version you will be using.

How to install and run Scalismo Lab:

Once the zip is downloaded and unzipped, all that is required to run the tool is a 64 bit Java 8 Runtime Environment. In case you run Scalismo Lab with a wrong Java runtime (32 bit, or Java 7 for example), an error dialog will be displayed.

In case you want to use OpenJDK 8 on Linux, please make sure that the OpenJFX package is also installed on your system.

To run the tool on Windows and Mac:

  1. Unzip the downloaded package.
  2. Double-click on the appropriate launcher depending on your operating system (launch_windows for Windows or launch_X for OS X and Linux).

That’s it !

You should then have a setting with three windows similar to the screenshot below:

Note that we recommend to restart the program for each exercise to avoid crashes.

That’s it. You are now all set.

If you want to, you can now switch to Scalismo Lab and go through the Readme document that will give you more details on the usage of Scalismo Lab. This can be found in the Menu bar -> Documents -> Readme
