Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 installation

simple install: no fink (so no uber_*.py)

applies to clean 10.7 or 10.8 systems

These instructions have moved to: HowTo Install AFNI

    These AFNI installation instructions are simplified for a fast install
    by avoiding installation of fink.  Without fink, the user_*.py programs
    will not be usable (unless pyqt4 is installed another way).  But those
    programs are not necessary.

    So the only needed instructions are in part #4.

  * Note that 10.8 does not come with X11 (or XQuartz) installed.  When afni
    is started for the first time, you should be directed (by the operating
    system) to a link to install XQuartz.

1. account setup

Assuming a user account exists, these steps are all optional (because X11 comes installed by default on 10.7 and 10.8). 1a. Create a user account with su (Administrator) privileges (via "System Preferences", under "Accounts"). Note: Admin privleges are only needed for fink, so that is optional. 1b. (optional) Set the shell to /bin/tcsh. This no longer works using the chsh command. Under System Preferences : System : Accounts menu, right-click on the user to get the Advanced Options menu and change the Login shell to /bin/tcsh. 1c. (optional) Under System Preferences : Sharing : Services, enable Remote Login to allow ssh access. 1d. Set the policy where "focus follows mouse", so that it is not necessary to first click on a new window (to select it) before subsequent clicks are applied to that window. There are 3 applications that this might apply to, so we make sure... From a terminal window, enter: defaults write org.macosforge.xquartz.X11 wm_ffm -bool true defaults write org.x.X11 wm_ffm -bool true defaults write FocusFollowsMouse -string YES

2. Xcode installation

Xcode is only needed for a compiler, which is only needed for fink. This is skipped for now.

3. Fink installation

Skipped for now. No uber*.py... <sniff!>

4. AFNI installation

4a. Download and unpack the current binaries into your home directory, changing the directory name to 'abin'. cd curl -O tar -xzf macosx_10.7_Intel_64.tgz mv macosx_10.7_Intel_64 abin rm macosx_10.7_Intel_64.tgz 4b. Update the path and library path. tcsh users: echo 'set path = ( $path $HOME/abin )' >> .cshrc echo 'setenv DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH $HOME/abin' >> .cshrc source .cshrc rehash bash users: echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/abin' >> .profile echo 'export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/abin' >> .profile . .profile 4c. Try it out! If these start, you should be in good shape. Note that 10.8 users may need to follow the link to install XQuartz. afni suma 4d. 10.8 - install XQuartz When prompted, install XQuartz. 4e. (optional, but helpful) Update help files for tab-completion. Run this command, and then follow the brief instructions. apsearch -update_all_afni_help 4f. Get sample data and review AFNI handouts.
