Requirements

This page should list the requirements of Fiji on different platforms to solve installation problems easier.

General

Windows

  • Java 3D 1.5.1 is shipped with Fiji and requires OpenGL 1.3 or higher. You can use Plugins  ▶ Utilities  ▶ Debugging  ▶ Test Java3D to test the functionality of Java 3D. If you do not see a rotating cube, install the latest graphics card driver for your system and check its OpenGL version.

Mac OS X

  • Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required. This is due to many plugins needing Java version 1.5 or higher, and Apple does not provide those versions with older Mac OS X versions.

Note: This requirement might be lifted in the near future, as OpenJDK will merge the BSD port soon, which includes SoyLatte, a port of the BSD port to MacOSX. A bit of work lies ahead of those efforts, as only early parts of an Aqua UI interface are present, and only the X11 interface is expected to run smoothly.
