Installing Neuron Morpho on Mac OS 9 or earlier
What follows are a set of instructions for running ImageJ and the Neuron Morpho plugin on Apple computers using a version of the operating system earlier than OS X. I do not have access to such a computer and I have not tested the reliability of these instructions. However, they are based on the comments of a user who has successfully managed to run Neuron Morpho on his Mac.
- Install the latest version of MRJ (Mac OS Runtime for Java), Apple's implementation of the Java VM and runtime environment, based on Sun's JDK 1.1.3 specification. A copy of this package is at http://www.info.apple.com/support/downloads.html.
- Install MRJ SDK 2.2.2. I have found a copy at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/1826 but you may also want to search on google if this version is not suitable for you.
- The Neuron Morpho plugin uses a Java package called "swing". In order for the plugin to run you need to install the swingall.jar Java archive. You can download it from here.
- Install swingall.jar as follows: System Folder: Extensions: MRJ Libraries: MRJ Classes
