Operating system: Version 79.0.3945.86 (Official Build) (64-bit) Using the Linux (beta) feature.
Slicer version: 4.10.2
Expected behavior: Following instruction at https://www.slicer.org/wiki/Documentation/4.10/FAQ#How_to_install_Slicer_.3F I type in the 1st line updating the version number as instructed:
$ tar xzvf ~/Downloads/Slicer-4.10.2-linux-amd64.tar.gz -C ~/
Actual behavior: error message
“tar (child): /home/dragonbeary/Downloads/Slicer-4.10.2-linux-amd64.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now”
Expected behavior: I am able to unpack the file with another app (Wicked Good Unarchiver) so that I have the folder “Slicer-4.10.2-linux-amd64” so then I try typing in the 2nd line if the instructions:
$ cd ~/Slicer-4.10.2-linux-amd64
Actual behavior: error message “-bash: cd: /home/dragonbeary/Slicer-4.10.2-linux-amd64: No such file or directory”
Expected behavior: Finally I do discover I have somehow produce a “Slicer” file sitting in my Downloads folder, so I type in the 3rd line of the instructions:
Actual behavior: error message: “-bash: ./Slicer: Permission denied”
My brain is now melting down, can someone help me figure out how to install Slicer on my Chromebook so I can check out my MRI images? During this learning process I was able to install an unrelated linux app, so the Linux (beta) feature does appear to be functioning correctly. Although I’ve been planning to learn Linux, I’m a total newbie with working with terminals and programming code stuff.
