Hello, I download the slicer3d version 4.8 but I cannot run the executable file after unzipping the folder.

Best regards

What executable did you try to run?
Did you get any error message?

I've just tested 4.8 release on Ubuntu 16.04LTS and it works well.

Have you extracted and have read access to all files in the package?

Yes I did. I send you a screenshot of tall the folders.

What folder you extracted the package to? Is that on a local drive in your computer or on a network or removable drive or any other special storage location?

I send you a screenshot of the main folder. I just download the folder available on the website and extract it on my local HDD using the default unzip on ubuntu.

I just run the command that you sent me and I got: "~/.local/share/Trash/files/Slicer-".
Now it works with "./Slicer".
Thank you for your help

I redo the same steps but it's not working! this is the message that I got from the command that you sent me:
error: Failed to obtain launcher executable name !

This indicates that you haven't extracted the zip file to a permanent location but into your Trash folder.

I unzip the folder using terminal and the forlder is not in trash! This is the message that I got from the command that you sent me:
error: Failed to obtain launcher executable name !

Thanks for being so responsive and providing additional information so that we can sort this out.

the forlder is not in trash!


Could you try the following:

1) check the md5sum of the downloaded files

cd ~/Downloads
md5sum Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz

Expected result is 7c2dcb64b085f5dd1e20310e2e303579

2) Extract archive in /tmp directory and try to run

cd /tmp
cp ~/Downloads/Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz .
tar -xzvf Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
cd Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64

3) Value of PATH env variable. Is there any custom values that would cause the Slicer launcher to fail ?

echo $PATH

Thank you for your help!
I followed all the steps and ./Slicer works very well.

echo $PATH gives:

I should mention that when I installed ubuntu, I put the /home in a separte partition. You think it's the problem?
What will be the next step?

Now you could do the same in the directory where you want to install Slicer.

For example, here is what you could do to install in your home directory:

DEST_DIR=~  # To install in your home directory
cp ~/Downloads/Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz $DEST_DIR
tar -xzvf Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
rm Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz
cd Slicer-4.8.0-linux-amd64
