    I still have the 7.0 SDK if you would like a copy?
    I would like a copy please, seems to me the only way to get it working.

    Re: QGIS 1.6 on 10.10 Maverick MrSid files

    So this morning I ran an automatic update on my lucid 10.04 comp, and noticed that a new gdal was being installed along with several other version updates for qgis. O oh, this is going to me trouble for my Mr Sid files I thought, and sure enough, upon opening up qgis post update I discovered that I was no longer able to load in Mr Sid raster files into qgis.

    So I'm going back to the lizard tech site and presently downloading the SDK 8.0 ( Redhat Enterprise Linux 5 x86 gcc 4.1 ). Lets see if we can get it running this time. I'll also try and get it up and running on my 10.10 comp when I get to the office. Will keep you posted.

    Alas, no success!

    As I had previously tried back in January, I tried a similar build approach that was listed for the 7.0 SDK.

    Code:
    jvc@CF1:~$ sudo gdal-mrsid-build $HOME/Raster_DSDK
    [sudo] password for jvc: 
    grep: /home/jvc/Raster_DSDK/include/support/lt_base.h: No such file or directory

    checking for MrSID JPEG2000 support... configure: error: MrSID JPEG2000 support requested, but libltikdu.a not found.
    jvc@CF1:~$ sudo gdal-mrsid-build $HOME/Lidar_DSDK
    grep: /home/jvc/Lidar_DSDK/include/support/lt_base.h: No such file or directory
    grep: /home/jvc/Lidar_DSDK/include/lt_base.h: No such file or directory
    /home/jvc/Lidar_DSDK seems not containing an GeoExpress SDK 4.0+
    Still no luck.

    I noticed in the readme files in the 8.0 SDK that it says

    INSTALLATION:

    No specific installation is required to use the LiDAR SDK beyond
    copying the SDK contents to your local machine.

    After installing, we suggest building and running the example program
    to assure correct installation and behaviour.

    Is this true? Where exactly should we copy the contents to then?

    As always, all help is greatly appreciated!

    Re: QGIS 1.6 on 10.10 Maverick MrSid files

    I've tried also using gdal 1.8.0 Ubuntu 11.04 and SDK 8.0, without success, any idea?

    Thanks!

    Re: QGIS 1.6 on 10.10 Maverick MrSid files

    Here's how I compiled the MRSID plugin for gdal1.7 on ubuntu 10.10:

    Follow step #2 from:
    http://trac.osgeo.org/ubuntugis/wiki/TutorialMrSid

    webcrawl this site to get the DSDK 7, unfortunately lizard techs 8.0 SDK does not work with gdal 1.7 (from what I read):
    http://worldwind31.arc.nasa.gov/svn/...x.x86-32.gcc41/

    Once you get all the files run:
    Code:
    sudo gdal-mrsid-build <your local dir>/Geo_DSDK-7.0.0.2167.linux.x86-32.gcc41
    #verify with
    gdalinfo --formats |grep -i sid
    If you run into the dreaded

    Code:
    checking for MrSID JPEG2000 support... configure: error: MrSID JPEG2000 support requested, but libltikdu.a not found.

    It means you're missing Geo_DSDK-7.0.0.2167.linux.x86-32.gcc41/3rd-party/lib/Release/liblt_kakadu.a

    Note how libltikdu.a != libtl_kakadu.a, the configure script will take either. The Nasa site from above has libtl_kakadu.a and should work if you put in the right place.

    Enjoy!

    Hi, Thanks for the info.

    A quick question. When you say
    webcrawl this site to get the DSDK 7, unfortunately lizard techs 8.0 SDK does not work with gdal 1.7 (from what I read):
    http://worldwind31.arc.nasa.gov/svn/...x.x86-32.gcc41/
    Do you mean we have to manually go through and download every file and put into appropriate subfolders as per the folder structure on the website. Isn't there a quicker way to download all these files at once?

    Regards,

    BB

    Re: QGIS 1.6 on 10.10 Maverick MrSid files

    Isn't it available for 11.04?, I followed that step two wich says:

    In a terminal, type:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libgdal-mrsid-src
    sudo apt-get install gdal-bin
    But I got this:


    E: No se ha podido localizar el paquete libgdal-mrsid-src
    which means: "could not locate package libgdal-mrsid-src" or something like that.

    BigBaka, it's been a while, but for the record, you can download the entire repository from the NASA site with:

    Code:
    svn co http://worldwind31.arc.nasa.gov/svn/trunk/GDAL/GDAL-1.7.2/MrSID/linux/Geo_DSDK-7.0.0.2167.linux.x86-32.gcc41/
