Re: Multiply error? Or positioning error? or layer error?

That was better, it produced the numbers where I wanted them, but had 2 pages in the result file, one with each number. An extra -compose multiply -flatten cured that. The weird this is, I tried the original case again, and it now works, without having made changes... maybe it is something to do wit...

Re: Multiply error? Or positioning error? or layer error?

Hmm. Not quite. Removing the flattens produces a 3 page TIFF file. I want the content merged. I just tried removing the first flatten, but that didn't change the results... only the first page number shows up, instead of both of them.

Multiply error? Or positioning error? or layer error?

I'm not sure what is going wrong. Convert xc:white -resize 5250x3886!

Re: How to find fonts

Yes, 32-bit versions of Ghostscript and ImageMagick worked fine for me on Windows XP too, straight out of the boxes. When I downgraded to 64-bit Windows 7 is when I encountered these problems. But how else to get 16GB RAM, and still be able to run most Windows software? So it seems that there are a ...

Re: How to find fonts

My GS_LIB registry value points to C:\Program Files\gs\gs8.71\lib My value is "C:\Programme\gs\gs8.71\lib;C:\Programme\gs\fonts". So, you can add several directories. I even think that this was the default with my Ghostscript installation. But not sure anymore. Interesting that you can have several...

Re: How to find fonts

Solution on my system: It works with that font (without error) if I copy an old package of the Ghostscript fonts to a gs\fonts subdirectory. But that works only if IM can access the Windows registry. (My Ghostscript 8.71 installation specifies a "GS_LIB" value with that directory.) Of course, with ...

Re: How to find fonts

Drarakel, thanks for your response. I added C:\Program Files\gs\gs8.71\bin to my path, and now I only get one error repeated many, many times: Magick: unable to read font `@ghostscript_font_path@n021003l.pfb' @ error/annotate.c/RenderFreetype/1056.

Re: How to find fonts

Found this on sourceforge's ghostscript forum: Starting with 8.64, the fonts are compiled into the dll, so you don't need to install them unless you want to access them from another application. Dunno if this is the problem IM is having finding fonts, or if there are other problems too. The fonts ar...

Re: How to find fonts

Sadly, four months of tomorrows, and still no help for Windows 7 64-bit IM + Ghostscript. It is four months, because I was out of town most of that time, and away from this 64-bit Windows 7 computer, and couldn't have responded to any help, but none came, either. Is there anyone that understands thi...

Re: How to find fonts

Thanks for trying to help. I wonder if the developers are tracking changes to Ghostscript... apparently they Ghostscript people have moved the fonts from a directory, to a .dll that contains a "read only file system" of the font files. If IM is attempting to read the files, that would now fail, beca...

Re: How to find fonts

Oh, and so because I use a binary distribution, I don't run "configure", so I'd need to know what to edit in the delegate files, I guess.

Re: How to find fonts

On Windows, "all" the delegates are bundled in the binary installer. All except Ghostscript, it seems. And I think from something I read or tried, that the PCL delegate is not bundled with the Windows binary installer either. I suspect the reasoning is something like.... Windows "distributions" don'...

How to find fonts

Given an error like the following, what must I tweak to help it find the fonts? Or, if someone can explain how to get gs and imagemagick working together on Win7 64-bit, with 64-bit versions of both applications, that would probably help. Magick: unable to read font `C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.6...
