Radiant on Linux

Thank you for your work!

I have a question.
Is there any possibility that Radiant will be ported to Linux operation systems?
Like Ubuntu or else.

Thank you.

I'm afraid that this won't happen soon... Please see this thread on linux subject: http://www.radiantviewer.com/dicom-viewer-forum/linux-version/220

So, I tryed.

Old notebook
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Wine 1.4
radiant 1947257
It works fine BUT:
- crashes, when trying use ellipse
- after some time mouse wheel stops work (after reloading radiant - it`s OK)

So, it`s usable.

Maybe compiling radiant against winelib would help?

I can't promise anything, but perhaps we could give it a try and build RadiAnt with wine.lib sometime.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Wine 1.6.1

It works, but not everything (at least for me) - the labels with measurements are not visible.

Same here, everything works except the labels. . . so close to it being so good.

What dll do you use to draw the labels? Maybe one could use the original dll.

We had a quick glance at this issue, it looks like some problems with GDI+ calls in Wine. Can't promise anything, but we'll probably give it a try, sometime in the future.

Which labels don`t work?
And what hardware do you use?
I repeat

notebook Intel t2370 GMA X3100
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Wine 1.6.1
radiant 1.9.14
Everything works fine.

Lukash: You probably already had Tahoma font installed in the wine installation.

Maciej: I tried playing with installing Radiant in wine on CentOS. It works perfectly. The only thing missing were the labels for the measurement. I use PlayOnLinux for all my windows apps on Linux and I tried installing the native gdiplus.dll. That didn't help. I notice the labels are there, just too small and I thought that it would be a missing font. The first thing that helped was installing the Tahoma font.

Is it true? Do you use the Tahoma font for displaying the labels?
If so, adding a hint for Linux users that they need to install it would solve the constant questions on the forum regarding linux compatibility. Radiant would be the best dicom viewer for Windows AND Linux.

BTW: Although I had little interest in the PACS capability or anything similar, I would suggest adding Structured Reports and CE certification as the next features after PACS, because with that, hospitals could start considering licensing Radiant which could boost your sales and the second brother could concentrate more on development of Radiant.
I am actually not interested in PACS or SR, what I am waiting for eagerly are 3D reconstructions with various transfer functions etc. With your machine-efficient programming skills I am expecting a lot from your product.

Aaaaaaaaaaaa, you were right about the missing fonts:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

...and the labels magically appeared :-)
Thanks for the tip, we'll add this info to the manual with the next update.

As for the 3D features, believe me, if we were developing just for our own pleasure, this functionality would be on the top of the list. However, I'm convinced that much more people will benefit form having the possibility to download studies from PACS locations. So, we all have to wait :-)
