Critical: if you updated and Fiji does not work anymore, you need to follow these instructions.
Please note! The authoritative site for Fiji is http://pacific.mpi-cbg.de, so if you downloaded Fiji from some mirrors such as Softpedia and experience problems, please re-download from here and verify that the problem still exists.
You can download the current version of Fiji ("Madison") for Template:DownloadsCurrent
Java WebStart is a means to deploy full Java applications via web, without the need to install anything.
For some time, Fiji provided two WebStart versions:
- stable, which had the same versions of the plugins as the Fiji Updater would provide, and
- current, which followed the cutting-edge of Fiji's source code repository.
Both were updated every night (to be precise, some time after 04:15 central European time).
However, Java WebStart was not used all that often, and after a server meltdown in Dresden the Fiji web server was built back up in Madison, WI, and WebStart was not put back into action as of February 2014.
Packages for Debian / Ubuntu
These packages have not been extensively tested, so feedback to mark-fiji at longair.net would be very much appreciated.
There are Debian packages of Fiji. Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://pacific.mpi-cbg.de/downloads/apt/ ./ deb-src http://pacific.mpi-cbg.de/downloads/apt/ ./
Then do the following:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install fiji
You should then be able to just run "fiji" from the command line.
Alternatively, if you want to install the .deb files directly with dpkg, you can download the packages directly here:
- These packages should work for you, but fail to meet policy for being official Debian and Ubuntu packages in many ways - we are working towards this, however, so if you use the apt repository above and update regularly, you should see the packages improve and reduce in size over time.
- These packages aren't signed at the moment, so you will get a warning about the packages not being authenticated.
