A license key must be obtained to make the FreeSurfer tools operational. Obtaining a license is free and comes in the form of a license.txt file. Once you obtain the license.txt key file, copy it to your FreeSurfer installation directory. This is also the location defined by the FREESURFER_HOME environment variable.

Follow this link to obtain a license key.

The binaries downloaded from the site listed above do require this license key

Here is the official GitHub repo for FreeSurfer


I will ask on the mailing list about the status of the open source/license-key free version of the project.

Note: When in doubt, please e-mail Fedora Legal at legal@fedoraproject.org to confirm if software can be included in Fedora.
