possible bug rendering fonts using the font family

Post by chawkinsuf » 2012-05-15T06:43:56-07:00

I recently opened a question on stackoverflow regarding using the font family to render text. Rather than rehash the whole thing I am providing a link to the post and will briefly describe the issue here. Maybe I am doing something wrong, maybe I am not using features as intended or maybe this is indeed a bug. Any insights would be appreciated.

I am using ImageMagick 6.7.6 on Gentoo Linux and I have not been able to render text by specifying the font family at all. Using convert I just get the default system font and using Imagick I always get an exception thrown when I specify a font family to the draw object. Is it possible to specify the font family and parameters to choose a font?
