Installing Image Magick, Magick Wand, PHP, FreeType

08 Nov 2006

This is largely by another fellow from

here , I added some updated version #'s, as well as freetype support.

I did the build in tmp,

Get your ImageMagick wget

Get your delegates

wget wget wget wget wget wget wget

extract them all.

copy the ghostscript fonts to the default dir. mkdir /usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts

cp ./ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11/* /usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts/

make an 'ext' directory in ImageMagick mkdir ./ImageMagick-6.2.9-8/ext

copy all the delegate folders there, give them nicer names like jpeg jasper libpng ghostscript

./configure and build jpeg copy the jpeg folder into the ghostscript folder

./configure and build ghostscript

./configure and build jasper

./configure and build and install libpng

i use a text file for my configure params for ImageMagick cd /tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9-8/

touch myconf

this is the contents of MY configuration ./configure  --with-windows-font-dir=/usr/share/fonts/monotype/TrueType --enable-shared --with-exif=yes --enable-lzw=yes --with-gs-font-dir=/usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts -without-x CPPFLAGS='-I/tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9/ext/jpeg -I/tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9/ext/libpng -I/tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9/ext/jasper' LDFLAGS='-L/tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9/ext/jpeg -L/tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9/ext/libpng -L/tmp/ImageMagick-6.2.9/ext/jasper -lfreetype'

you can see where you point ImageMagick at the various delegates

so, then I configure ./myconf > configure.log

after that happens, inspect the configure.log  , with any luck it'll look like this, the only thing i didn't get was jpeg2000 (thats jasper) , I'm not to worried about it, but possibly if you did a make build on jasper before configuring image magick it would work.

then do make && make install , walk away, it takes about forever..

that should do it! try this out echo "This is a test" | convert -background yellow -page 200x50 text:- mediocreimage.jpg
