FYI, I googled info that scifio can export jpeg2000 via “file/export”, and since that file operaton was missing in my fiji, I checked the scifio-dev fiji updater site box, it added a slew of files, and, POOF, my fiji app was DEAD.
I get the splash screen, and fiji dies immediately.
I tried to delete all files with today’s datestamp- still dead. I deleted the dot.gz manifest- still dead.
While I’m downloading, reinstalling, and trying to figure out all the custom plugins I need to move, wouldn’t it make sense to:
- have descriptions for the various “update sites” in fiji (to avoid the need to TRY a download to see what all it is and can do). This can be a hyperlink to info site vs download. The table is half empty, after all…
- have a list of files for UNINSTALLING the updater site plugins (or true uninstaller)
My latest readings suggest bioformats can directly export jpeg2000 via its export options. I will avoid scifio at all costs.
