Paintera installation in Windows 10

I would like to perform the installation of paintera but in the GitHub repository the instructions for doing it in windows are not very informative and I am a little confused about the Apache Maven installation and other instructions, I would like to know if someone has done the installation of paintera in windows 10 and if that person can give some tips about it.

Thanks in advance

This worked for me in a Windows 10 sandbox:

set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_271\bin;C:\apache-maven-3.6.3\bin

py.exe -m pip install paintera

py.exe -c"import paintera;paintera.launch_paintera()"

Hi @xgalindo,

Thanks to @cgohlke for the suggestion.

Here is another approach uses conda (I can’t test it at the moment) :

  1. Install anaconda
  2. Start the anaconda prompt

Then in the anaconda prompt, type:

conda install -c pkgs/main openjdk
conda install -c conda-forge maven
conda install -c conda-forge paintera

You’ll know it works if, in the anaconda prompt, this command

paintera --help

produces this output.


p.s. we know installation is not easy now. Hope to improve that soon.

Thanks for your quick answer. Followed the installation instructions in conda and apparently everything went ok because I get the same message you show in

however, when I tray to execute paintera using the comand

paintera [[JGO ARG...] [JVM ARG...] --] [ARG...]

and right after I get this message

WARNING: Please consider reporting this to the maintainers of bdv.fx.viewer.render.BufferExposingWritableImage

WARNING: All illegal access operations will be denied in a future release
Unmatched arguments from index 1: ‘ARG…]’, ‘[JVM’, ‘ARG…]’, ‘–]’, ‘[ARG…]’

I do not know if I am using the right command to execute it or if I get confused again.
