CMYK and pdf

Postby t-servi » 2008-03-24T06:55:20-07:00

Hello,
I want to generate a simple PDF in CMYK with ImageMagick 6.2.3 ( Linux ) with this command :

Code: Select all

convert -background lightblue -fill (0,0,0,100) -font Times-Roman -pointsize 80 label:Artification testConvert1.pdf

But it gives me this message :

Code: Select all

-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

How can I do?
Best Regards.

Edit:
I test this command too :

Code: Select all

convert -background lightblue -fill cmyk(0,0,0,100) -font Times-Roman -pointsize 80 label:Artification testConvert1.pdf

Doesn't work!

Edit 2:
This command :

Code: Select all

convert -background lightblue -fill "cmyk(0,0,0,100)" -font Times-Roman -pointsize 80 label:Artification testConvert1.pdf

gives me this message :

Code: Select all

convert: unrecognized color `cmyk(0,0,0,100)'.


What can I do?

You may need to upgrade. We're using ImageMagick 6.4.0 and your command ran without complaint.

Hello Magick,
Thank you.
I install Image Magick 6.4.0 from sources in /usr/local/im640 and try again with this command :

Code: Select all

/usr/local/im640/bin/convert -background lightblue -fill 'cmyk(0,0,0,100)' -font Helvetica -pointsize 80 label:Artification testConvert1.pdf

but the command gives me this message :

Code: Select all

convert: delegate library support not built-in `/usr/local/im640/lib/ImageMagick-6.4.0/config//usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/n019003l.pfb' (Freetype).

convert: delegate library support not built-in `/usr/local/im640/lib/ImageMagick-6.4.0/config//usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/n019003l.pfb' (Freetype).


May be I must install something more? Don't know what.
Best regards.

Looks like Freetype was not validated at build time. It is required to render text properly. Without it the text should be rendered but not as accurately. When you run the ImageMagick configure script look at the last 50 or so lines of output. Make sure it says that Freetype support is enabled. If not, see config.log for the reason it failed to validate. Fix the problem and rerun the ImageMagick configure script until Freetype validate. Now just build and install and your command should work.

Hello,
I've done this :

Code: Select all

>./configure --prefix=/usr/local/im640 --with-freetype=yes > output.txt
>cat output.txt | grep freetype
checking for freetype-config... no
checking for FT_Init_FreeType in -lfreetype... no
checking for freetype/freetype.h... no
FreeType          --with-freetype=yes    no

Don't understand why the configuration will not make whit-freetype=yes.
If I check my installation I see ( Ubuntu 5.10 ) :

Code: Select all

>dpkg -l | grep ii | grep freetype
ii  freetype1-tools                        1.4pre.20030402-1.1                Bundled tests, demos and tools for FreeType
ii  freetype2                              1.4pre.20030402-1.1                Dummy package for transition to libttf2
ii  libfreetype6                           2.1.7-2.4ubuntu1                   FreeType 2 font engine, shared library files

Thank you for your help.
Best regards.

To understand why Freetype failed to validate, see config.log.

Most likely you need to install the Freetype developer package which includes the required Freetype header files.

Hello,
Where must I install the header files, in which directory?
Best regards.

Hello,
I reinstall Image Magick 6.4. Now the message is :

Code: Select all

# convert -background lightblue -fill "cmyk(0,0,0,100)" -font Times-Roman -pointsize 80 label:Artification testConvert1.pdf

The "convert -list font" send an empty string?! :?
I'm lost.
Thank you for your help.

You need to install the FreeType and FreeType development distributions on your system and rerun the ImageMagick configure script. Check the output of the script and make sure FreeType validated. Next rebuild and reinstall ImageMagick. You will now be able to render TrueType fonts.
