Re: Problems with Variety (wallpaper app) after recent Imagemagick update

I looked at the other link...it does seem possible they are the same issue, since that user mentioned Debian (which is further upstream to both Ubuntu and Linux Mint).

Re: Problems with Variety (wallpaper app) after recent Imagemagick update

Just ran Variety with the '-v' verbose option, and I believe the following entry shows the ImageMagick command involved: INFO: 2017-07-27 21:42:00,902: build_imagemagick_clock_cmd() 'ImageMagick clock cmd: convert "/home/dan/.config/variety/Favorites/VernalFall_EN-US10631212377_1920x1080.jpg" -scale...

Problems with Variety (wallpaper app) after recent Imagemagick update

I've noticed a problem with the rendering of the date/time as part of the wallpaper drawn by the Variety app ( http://peterlevi.com/variety/ ) using ImageMagick. It seems to have coincided with a recent ImageMagick update that was pushed out to Linux Mint (Ubuntu), which is why I suspect that instea...
