Step by step launching of SPM5
This page explains how to get SPM-5 started at the BCNI network.
Set up a VNC server
Set up a puTTy tunnel, and log in (to open the tunnel)
Run VNC viewer
Add a path to SPM 5
Step by step
To set up a VNC-server see Getting Started with Linux
But before you can connect to a VNC-server (from most computers, which are outside the firewall) you first have to make a tunnel in Putty. You only have to set a tunnel up once (but you must run puTTy every time you log in to the VNC session).
To make a tunnel use the info/output you get from puTTy after you've typed in the command:
'vncserver -depth 24 -geometry 1280x1024'
new: 'bcni0:4' /home/um207/.vnc/xstartup log file /home/um207/.vnc/bcni0:4.log
write down the 'bcni0:4' You will need this to make a tunnel.
Open puTTy. Write down in Host Name:'bcnc.psychol.cam.ac.uk' In the Saved Sessions section type in something like: 'BCNI-VNC' and press “save”. Now go to the Tunnels in the Catergory (left panel, SSH)
In Source Port type in: 5901 In Destination type: bcni0:5904(04 because (bcni0:4) in this case it's the 4th desktop, it will start at 5900; a new number for each 'new' desktop)
Then press 'add' you will see something like this
Go back to session and make sure you save the tunnel by pressing 'save' and that you've saved it in the 'BCNI-VNC'
After you've done this go to your VNC-viewer. It will ask for a Server. Type in: bcni0:4 (localhost:number) Then it will ask for your password, use the password you've also used in puTTy
Once you are in the VNC-viewer press your left mouse 'button' and choose 'run program...'
Then type in: 'matlab'
To go to spm5 you first have to make a new path by typing: 'addpath /usr/local/spm5'
note this can be done using the startup file, rather than typing it in every time. See MATLAB Startup.
Then type in: 'spm'
and spm5 will open.
