Preparation

Install ImageJ

Download the Linux version of ImageJ from the NIH website. From a terminal, unzip to /usr/local/ and test that it runs:

Commandline

cd ~/Downloads/
sudo unzip ij*-linux*.zip -d /usr/local/
sudo chmod +r /usr/local/ImageJ
cd /usr/local/ImageJ/
./jre/bin/java -jar ij.jar

Other Required Programs and Libraries

You will need a subversion client to checkout the source code, several libraries, and build tools. Install them with:

Note
Heavy editing in progress: some dependencies may be missing
Commandline

sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential automake libtool \
                     libboost-all-dev zlib1g-dev swig

You may also need to install additional packages (for cameras and special hardware). See the full list in #Dependencies

Source Repositories

Create a directory for the the subversion repositories, such as ~/mm. Besides the source tree, additional binary dependencies are stored in the 3rdpartypublic repository. The build scripts in the source tree assume 3rdpartypublic is in the same parent folder level:

Commandline

mkdir ~/mm
cd ~/mm
svn co https://valelab.ucsf.edu/svn/micromanager2/trunk/ micro-manager1.4
svn co https://valelab.ucsf.edu/svn/3rdpartypublic/

This creates 2 new folders in the mm directory:

    ~/mm/micro-manager1.4
    ~/mm/3rdpartypublic

Add the Beanshell and SwingX to the ImageJ plugins directory:

Commandline

cd ~/mm/3rdpartypublic/classext
sudo cp bsh-2.0b4.jar swingx-0.9.5.jar /usr/local/ImageJ/plugins/

Create a new micro-manager directory in /usr/lib/

Commandline

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/micro-manager

Building Micro-Manager

Create the Autotools files

configure uses the bundled version of ImageJ:

Commandline

cd ~/mm/micro-manager1.4
./mmUnixBuild.sh
./configure --with-imagej=/usr/local/ImageJ

Compile

Commandline

make

Install

Commandline

sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

Post Install

Create the startup script

Micro-Manager requires the path to /usr/lib/micro-manager. Create the 4 line Bash script below in /usr/local/ImageJ and save it as, say, mmscript.

File: mmscript

#!/bin/bash
cd /usr/local/ImageJ
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:/usr/local/lib:/usr/lib/micro-manager:/usr/local/ImageJ
java -mx1200m \
     -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/micro-manager:/usr/local/ImageJ \
     -Dplugins.dir=/usr/local/ImageJ \
     -cp /usr/local/ImageJ/ij.jar:usr/local/jdk1.5.0_04/lib/tools.jar \
      ij.ImageJ

Make the script executable:

Commandline

sudo chmod +x mmscript

Running Micro-Manager

Start ImageJ with your new script:

Commandline

./mmscript &

Run Plugins > Micro-Manager > Micro-Manager Studio
