SPM/Installation on Linux


All versions of SPM are supported under Linux 32 bit and the installation should be fairly the same with any version. You might have to recompile SPM MEX files (*.mexglx) if those provided with the SPM distribution do not appear to be compatible with your system. The Troubleshooting section of the Linux 64 bit installation page might also contain some useful information.

Required packages: make

SPM8Edit

InstallationEdit

Download spm8.zip and its updates spm8_updates_rxxxx.zip in your home directory then type the following in a Terminal:

cd /home/login
unzip spm8.zip
unzip -o spm8_updates_rxxxx.zip -d spm8

Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing

addpath /home/login/spm8

in MATLAB's workspace.

CompilationEdit

In a Terminal, from the src folder of your SPM8 installation, type:

cd /home/login/spm8/src
make distclean
make && make install
make toolbox-distclean
make toolbox && make toolbox-install
make external-distclean
make external && make external-install

SPM5Edit

InstallationEdit

Download spm5.zip and its updated MEX files SPM5_Matlab7.1_LINUX32_MEX.zip in your home directory then type the following in a Terminal:

cd /home/login
unzip spm5.zip
unzip -o SPM5_Matlab7.1_LINUX32_MEX.zip -d spm5

Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing

addpath /home/login/spm5

in MATLAB's workspace.

CompilationEdit

In a Terminal, from the src folder of your SPM5 installation, type:

cd /home/login/spm5/src
make distclean
make && make install

SPM2Edit

InstallationEdit

Download spm2.tar.gz and its updated MEX files SPM2_LINUX32_MEX.tar.gz in your home directory then type the following in a Terminal:

cd /home/login
tar xvfz spm2.tar.gz
tar xvfz SPM2_LINUX32_MEX.tar.gz -C spm2

Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing

addpath /Users/login/spm2

in MATLAB's workspace.

CompilationEdit

In a Terminal, type:

cd /home/login/spm2
make Linux
