@Roosted7 thanks for updating this. I will say that we use dcm2niix but not the rest of MRIcroGL so I have been using this separate package. That said, maybe I should just switch to MRIcroGL?

@caleb I think you are right that it would be a better structure to make this a dependency but it looks like there is a pre-compiled version of dcm2niix included in MRIcroGL which upstream would need to provide an option to separate out.

The dcm2niix page github page implies they are different builds saying,

"Github Releases provides the latest compiled executables... the provided Linux executable requires a recent version of Linux, so the provided Unix executable is not suitable for all distributions."


"MRIcroGL (stable) or MRIcroGL (development) includes dcm2niix that can be run from the command line or from the graphical user interface (select the Import menu item). The Linux version of dcm2niix is compiled on a holy build box, so it should run on any Linux distribution."

so it seems like this dcm2niix and the dcm2niix included in MRIcroGL are not exactly the same.

@Roosted7 I think the correct approach for Arch packages here would be to remove the bundled version of this from the mricrogl packaging and make it depend on this one instead.

It's updated now! I'm thinking of removing this package, since dcm2niix is included and synced with MRIcroGL - which I am also packaging. Is there interest in a dcm2niix-only package still?

Thanks very much for this package! I noticed it is now a little out-of-date. Can we update to the latest release?

Thanks for your work Wedjat! I've enjoyed the package and I'll try and keep it up to date :)

I've switched to a different topic and that I will no longer work with MRI neuroimaging data, so I disown package, because I don't have enough time to maintain it regularly.
