Download and Build ImageConvolve

Click here to download ImageConvolve and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball ImageConvolve.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ImageConvolve/build 

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ImageConvolve
