Unable to use MRIcron in Linux machine
Hi everyone,
I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS version in my Linux machine without any graphics card. I have downloaded different versions of MRIcron for linux machine through NITRC webpage. However, dcm2niigui is showing nonfunctional.
Interestingly, MRIcron for windows machine can be downloaded and dcm2niigui is showing functional.
Need your kind guidance.

RE: Unable to use MRIcron in Linux machine
Can I suggest you install the latest version of MRIcron (currently 1.0.20190902) and use the included dcm2niix. You can use dcm2niix from the command line or from MRIcron's graphical user interface (the Import/ConvertDicomToNifti menu item). dcm2niix has replaced the older dcm2nii/dcm2niiGui. While I hope my legacy tools are stable and mature, the DICOM standard has changed a lot since development switched, so I would be cautious about using the older tool for newer images (e.g. enhanced DICOM). 

You can always update to the latest version of dcm2niix by getting a copy from Github. For Linux, this one-liner should work:
  curl -fLO

All my code is open source, so if you prefer a legacy tool, you can always download the code and extend or improve it in any way you want.
