Subject [greenstone-users] Problem with imagemagick
Hi evreryone,

First of all, I would like to thanks all of you for your works and the help
you provide for us.

Then, I would like to submit an issue we?ve met with greenstone a few days

Well, it seems like that greenstone (through the ImagePlug) can?t find
anymore our imagemagick installation.

After some research and test, we try to reinstall imagemagick and
perlmagick, for nothing.

We did continue our researchs and update some links to missing libraries,
and thought it was good, cause a script that I use for testing the
installation didn?t give errors anymore.

But when I try to rebuilt my image collection with greenstone, we got the
message again : imageplug ?imageconverter (imagemagick not installed)

If I try ?identify ?version?,

it works, if I try this


use Image::Magick;

my($image, $x);

$image = Image::Magick->new;

$x = $image->Read('girl.png', 'logo.png', 'rose.png');

warn "$x" if "$x";

$x = $image->Crop(geometry=>'100x100+100+100');

warn "$x" if "$x";

$x = $image->Write('x.png');

warn "$x" if "$x";

in a script.sh it works, but greenstone still can?t find imagemagick.

I submitted a message last year about an issue wich look like this one, a
response was given, and is still in place.

So I?m asking you, what we got wrong ?

Thanks in advance,

(for info, we are on linux with gsdl 2.81, with imagemagick 6.6.6-1, and
