The lifeline version for mac

Avital Steinberg
Hi,
I've recently upgraded my mac's operating system to the most recent 10.11.6
El Capitan. As a result, I noticed that Fiji was automatically updated to
Java 8. I wanted to get a version of Fiji which is bundeled with Java 6.

When I went to the following site:

https://imagej.net/Fiji/Downloads

I looked for:
"The transition towards Java 8 is in progress
<https://imagej.net/2015-12-22_-_The_road_to_Java_8>. The packages below
offer a version of Fiji that still works with Java 6."

When I chose either "All platforms" or OSX, what I got was not what I
wanted - Fiji was downloaded bundeled with Java 8. Does anyone know how I
can get Fiji with Java 6 to work on El Capitan?

Thanks,
Avital

Hi Avital,

In general, see this guide:
http://imagej.net/2016-05-10_-_ImageJ_HOWTO_-_Java_8,_Java_6,_Java_3D

The simplest solution is to uninstall Java 7 and/or 8. Then the ImageJ
Launcher will use Java 6.

If you need to keep Java 7/8 installed for some reason, then you can try
creating a shell script like:

  #!/bin/sh
  export J6="$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.6 | head -n1)"
  export IJ_HOME=/Applications/Science/Fiji-Life-Line-2014-06.app
  $J6/bin/$($IJ_HOME/Contents/MacOS/ImageJ-macosx --dry-run | perl -pe 's/
-Djava.ext.dirs=.*? -D/ -D/')

Change IJ_HOME to the location of your Java-6-compatible Fiji installation,
of course.

Sorry that running with Java 6 is not easier. One reason is that we cannot
bundle Apple Java 6 with Fiji, due to Apple's licensing restrictions.

Regards,
Curtis
