Installing Image Magic on the IBMi AS400

Post by edshaw42 » 2018-08-10T06:31:33-07:00

Hello,

I am trying to use ImageMagick to convert a .tif image to pdf or something more readable on our 400. We need to accomplish this in order to use the image through browser. Scott Klement has some intructions out there on his website, but they are outdated and do not give you the tifflib that you need to convert. I have tried a few ways and nothing seems to work. Does anyone have instructions they could share?

Let's see if ImageMagick builds out-of-the-box. Try these commands:

Code: Select all

curl -O https://www.imagemagick.org/download/ImageMagick.tar.gz
tar xvf ImageMagick.tar.gz
cd ImageMagick-7.0.8-9
./configure
make
sudo make install
/usr/local/bin/magick --version
/usr/local/bin/magick logo: logo.gif

We can't help without knowing how the build failed.
