Install ImageMagick 7.x on Ubuntu 16.04

Post by LittleKI » 2018-03-04T02:52:28-07:00

Hi,

because of a Bug in IM 6.x (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=33455) i tried to install IM 7.x on my Ubuntu 16.04. That worked good, but i can't decode my PDF because of missing Delegates (PNG). I searched on the Web and found some Pages. I have to compile IM with the Option '--with-png'. But when i try this compile failed. There is no such Option. ./configure --help brings my an Option --without-png. But this is still what i have. Is there an Option to compile IM with ALL Delegates so that i can decode ALL supported Formats without the need to recompile the program?

Or is there an other solution on Ubuntu? Installing the Delegates with apt-get?

Is Ghostscript installed on your system? If not, then that is probably the problem.

What does config.log say about Ghostscript and gslib?

"./configure --help" will show the available options. You might try a build "--with-gslib".
