Error while building moc_briconwidget.cxx

This is probably due to a badly installed Qwt plugin. The instructions on how to install the plugin can be found in the FslView compilation guide.

Following these instructions, the plugin should have been installed into the plugins/designer directory in your Qt installation directory. If you choose to install it elsewhere then the Qt tools: designer; moc; uic, etc., won't be able to find it. To tell Qt tools where to find the plugin use the designer tool's preferences which has a place where you can add custom directories to the Plugin Paths.

A quick test of the plugin is to run Qt's designer application. If the plugin is okay you'll see a Qwt pane in the tools on the left-hand side which will be filled with the Qwt widgets.

When I try to run FSLView I get an error about libexpat

Some Linux OSes (for example SuSE) may give the error:

/usr/local/fsl/bin/fslview_bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

when launching FSLView. To fix this issue you need to use the Linux package manager (YaST on SuSE) to install the package libexpat0 (or compat-libexpat1 if you can't find this package).

When I try to run FSLView I get an error about GLIBCXX_3.4.4

If you see an error like:

/usr/lib64/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.4' not found (required by...

then you have too modern a version of libstdc++. Most Linux distributions include a compat version which includes this older library. On Cent OS platforms run the command (as root or sudo)

yum install compat-libstdc++-33.

When running I get an error about missing libGL version info

If you see an error like:

.../fslview: /usr/X11R6/lib/ no version information available (required by .../

You can safely ignore this message.
