A better way to run AFNI’s uber_subject

I used to use fink, and then I switched to MacPorts; truthfully, neither of them really made me happy.  Now I mostly use homebrew, and one real advantage (besides being faster and lighter weight) is that it’s very easy to get AFNI’s GUI programs up and running on a Mac.

  1. Install AFNI (you’ve probably already done this)
  2. Install Xcode (App Store)
  3. Install Homebrew
    1. ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)”
  4. Install PyQT
    1. brew install pyqt
  5. Set Python Path
    1. export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH
    2. Consider adding the above line to your .bashrc or .profile (assuming Bash Shell)
  6. Run any AFNI uber_*.py programs
    1. uber_subject.py
    2. uber_ttest.py
    3. uber_align_test.py
