Just imstalled from source

Post here to shower the ImageMagick developers with praise or discuss how you could have done a better job if you developed ImageMagick. Or talk about how Photoshop is better than ImageMagick. Even complain about how no one answered your postings in the Users forum. Venting and musings welcomed here.

Just imstalled from source

Congradulation to the dev team.

I just downloaded the source tar ball. unziped it in a directory of my choosing.
Ran ./configure, then ./make, and then sudo make install, and it worked.

almost forgot; sudo ldconfig /usr/local/lib to get everything visible and it worked the first time.
There is not need to fear compiling from source on this project.
I can still used the version that came from the distributor by using convert or use my new version by using /usr/local/bin/convert.

When I'm sure that everything is working fine, all the little corner cases, I can change the default and life will be good.

It could not have been easier. I'm using linux, ubuntu distribution 14.4.
Thanks for your time and effort,
Al
gnu/linux, ubuntu 14.4 distribution, ImageMagick 7.0.1-3 Q16 x86_64; compiled from source
