BORIS requires the installation of the VLC media player
For older distributions (like Ubuntu 16.04 or Ubuntu 14.04):
Download, uncompress the archive and launch boris
BORIS for Linux 32-bit is no more available due to the fact that Qt is not available for 32 bits. If you are using Linux at 32-bit you must run BORIS from sources.
The requirements for running BORIS from the source code are:
the VLC media player,
the FFmpeg framework,
the Matplotlib Python library
the Tablib Python library
If you want to generate transition flow graph you can also install the Graphviz package (but it is not required).
Install these packages following the instructions relative to your distribution:
Example for DEB based distributions:
Open a terminal and type:
su (your root password will be required) apt install vlc ffmpeg graphviz pip3 install pyqt5 numpy matplotlib tablib
sudo (your user password will be required) apt install vlc ffmpeg graphviz pip3 install pyqt5 numpy matplotlib tablib
Download the BORIS source code:
Unpack the archive:
tar xvf v7.8.2.tar.gz
cd BORIS-7.8.2 python3 boris.py
