Missing http delegate after compiling and installing 6.9.2-4

Post by yakobom » 2015-10-27T22:50:18-07:00

Hi,
I'm running on Ubuntu 14, and I was using an older version of ImageMagick.
I have just downloaded the source, compiled and installed version 6.9.2-4 - I have followed the exact directions from here:
http://www.imagemagick.org/script/install-source.php
However, I cannot do any operation with images from the web - for example:

Code: Select all

convert  "http://www.manure.com/nikebasketball/us/en_US/images/kicks/athletes/kobe_bryant.png" test.png
convert: unable to open image `//www.manure.com/nikebasketball/us/en_US/images/kicks/athletes/kobe_bryant.png': No such file or directory @ error/blob.c/OpenBlob/2701.
convert: no decode delegate for this image format `HTTP' @ error/constitute.c/ReadImage/501.
convert: no images defined `test.png' @ error/convert.c/ConvertImageCommand/3230.
The tests were successfull, and my version info says:
Version: ImageMagick 6.9.2-4 Q16 x86_64 2015-10-27 http://www.imagemagick.org
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2015 ImageMagick Studio LLC
License: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/license.php
Features: Cipher DPC OpenMP
Delegates (built-in): fontconfig freetype jbig jng jpeg lzma openexr pangocairo png tiff x zlib

If I run

Code: Select all

convert -list delegate | grep http

I get

Code: Select all

https =>          "curl" -s -k -L -o "%o" "https:%M"

Any idea how to solve this?

Thanks,
yakobom

You have the ending quote in the wrong place. Try

Code: Select all

convert  "http://www.manure.com/nikebasketball/us/en_US/images/kicks/athletes/kobe_bryant.png" test.png
or just

Code: Select all

convert  http://www.manure.com/nikebasketball/us/en_US/images/kicks/athletes/kobe_bryant.png test.png
The above works for me on IM 6.9.2.4 Q16 Mac OSX

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
This was just a typo, since I've tried a lot of things. I've fixed it in my post just now.
This does not work for me, with the quotes or without them. And it is a general problem, not only with this image...
Any thoughts?

It worked fine for me. Perhaps a firewall or proxy issue on your system? What is your platform?

I still think it is some permissions, firewall, or proxy issue. Is this your computer or at an ISP? If the latter, then talk to them about your configuration.

Hi,
This is an AWS EC2 machine. I've checked, everything else seems to be just fine. When I return to older version (the last official installation of IM for ubuntu), it works fine. Is there perhaps anything that I'm missing which I was supposed to do after the build, besides what appears in the building instructions?

In recent days, I had a similar problem, although I do not quite understand why it occurred. Could this be due to the fact that I frequently used proxy (advanced.name)?
