Run InteleViewer on Ubuntu Linux with Wine
We offer referring doctors online access to studies and reports with InteleViewer. Whilst InteleViewer is only officially supported on Windows and Mac (10.6+) platforms, it is possible to run InteleViewer under Wine on Ubuntu.
The following steps were performed on an Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) desktop, running under Virtual Box in Mac OS 10.7. It should theoretically work with later releases of Ubuntu.
Firstly, you will need to install the Wine compatibility layer. To do so, open the Ubuntu Software Center and search for ‘Wine’. Next to the ‘Wine Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer’ package, click ‘Install’
Once the installation of Wine is finished, open up your web browser and download the Windows 32-bit release of InteleViewer from SRG. The file can be found here. Save the file to somewhere accessible, such as your Desktop folder.
After the download has finished, open Terminal and do the following:
cd ~/Desktop/ wine InteleViewer-Setup-Windows-32-bit.exe
Wine will then be configured for first-use, and then load the InteleViewer installer. Continue through the installation as you normally would on a PC or Mac. The installer stalls on the ‘Shutting down dicom service etc’ part, but once it finishes it will continue just fine. I haven’t tried to use the DICOM service under Wine, so I left it uninstalled which is the default.
After the installation has completed, an InteleViewer icon will be on your Ubuntu desktop. Open InteleViewer as you normally would, and enter the settings for our PACS server: https://pacs.srgmri.co.nz
You will now be able to log in using your SRG credentials & access your patients’ images and reports!
