Installation of Sama

  • Download SAMA:  http://montevil.org/assets/sama/Sama.zip
  • Extract Sama.zip and copy the SAMA folder in the plugins folder of FIJI.
  • (Re)start FIJI.
  • In FIJI , run Plugin>Sama>install or update R component. Then select install in the dialog and hit ok. This process will install the required R packages, including the R SAMA components.
  • Windows only: SAMA will ask you for the path to the R executable. It usually is in /root folder/R/R-x.x.x/bin/. In case of a mistake, it is possible to change this path in SAMA > updateR. Let us recall that R should not be installed in Program files because of issues with permissions.
