Re: [Solved] Installation Problem on Linux Mint - JPEG Deleg

The crash shouldn't occur in the latest version of Acroreader (was a bug in the older 11 versions). Or simply use a different PDF reader (for example pdfxcview, which can be installed as portable version; at least on Windows). You miss a complete description about the possible problems plus their so...

Re: Installation Problem on Linux Mint (ubuntu) - JPEG Deleg

I donno what you have done, so it's hard to say :-)
Some additional info about compiling it on Linux Mint can be found in my documentation (drops.pdf, page 6-7) for the drops module (ConTeXt).

Re: Installation Problem on Linux Mint (ubuntu) - JPEG Deleg

Can you explain why you don't use the Imagemagick software that is shipped with your Linux distribution? It supports JPG out of the box, so no need to compile it yourself.
Also: using rpm's from a different Linux distribution is a bad idea.

Re: Win 8 installation: convert not recognised

I use Redmond Path to edit the $PATH environment variable on Windows. Only one file, no installation needed.

Re: Transparent pdf to jpg

Normal JPG does not support transparency (only J2K). You can try to use PNG instead, but I doubt that the transparency will survive the 'flattening'. Just give it a try.

I also made a syntax check in Acrobat, no PDF problems found.

I guess you are right. But at some point of the conversion from postscript you have to 'draw' the barcode lines.

Re: eps to png barcode is blurry

You can also try to add '+antialias' to your command line. Anti-aliasing pixels are not helpful when it comes to bar codes.

alpha 7.0: magick exception

I just installed the alpha 7.0 to a local directory (/home/indiego/imagemagick7). The binary 'magick' is called over $IMCONV (latest 6.8 version is installed global).

version info

Is there a deeper reason why the official version number differs from the one reported by 'identify -version'?

Thank you!

I just released the first draft of my ConTeXt module, which heavily relies on the shadow functionality of IM.

configure.xml outdated on Windows

Hi, I'm trying to get the version number of the installed IM. I use the 'identify' command, because its name does not change in IM7. identify -list configure just types the content of 'configure.xml', which is sadly totally outdated (6.6.2-5). [ImageMagick-6.8.0-4-Q16-windows.zip] identify -version ...

Re: Added drop shadow - can't see the drop shadow with Gimp

I had similar experiences with Gimp and several image viewers. The problem is not the png itself (checked with tweakpng), but that those viewers don't handle the indexed pngs (256colors) right. To get rid of the indexed (paletted) png save it with the prefix 'png32:'. It can also be helpful to save ...
