Line 1: Line 1:
 +====== Compile and install ImageMagick in your home ======
  
 +We only have a useraccount so we download and compile in ''~/temp/'' and install to ''~/tools/'':
 +
 +  $> mkdir ~/temp
 +  $> mkdir ~/tools
 +
 +We start with GhostScript - it's needed by ImageMagic to handle ''eps'' files. Get it from [[http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1897&package_id=108733|http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/]]. Then unpack, configure, build and install - pretty easy.
 +
 +  $> cd ~/temp
 +  $> wget http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/ghostscript/ghostscript-8.15.tar.bz2
 +  $> tar -xjvf ghostscript-8.15.tar.bz2
 +  $> cd ghostscript-8.15
 +  $> ./configure --prefix=$HOME/tools
 +  $> make
 +  $> make install
 +
 +Ghostscript needs some fonts. They are not included in the usual download so get them from http://sourceforge.net/projects/gs-fonts/ and install them to ''~/tools/share/ghostscript''
 +
 +  $> cd ~/temp
 +  $> wget http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gs-fonts/ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11.tar.gz
 +  $> cd ~/tools/share/ghostscript
 +  $> tar -xzvf ~/temp/ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11.tar.gz
 +
 +Okay now we can continue with ImageMagick. Get it from www.imagemagick.org
 +
 +  $> cd ~/temp
 +  $> wget ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/unix/X11/graphics/ImageMagick/ImageMagick-6.2.5-4.tar.bz2
 +  $> tar -xjvf ImageMagick-6.2.5-4.tar.bz2
 +
 +Before we continue we need to set the $PATH envrinment variable to make sure the configure script detects our GhostScript install correctly:
 +
 +  $> export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/tools/bin
 +
 +Now we can configure ImageMagick. Disable the Perl bindings and Magick++ if you don't need them. I had to disable the the TrueTypeFont support aswell to avoid a compile error. Configure, compile and install:
 +
 +  $> ./configure --with-ttf=no --without-magick-plus-plus --without-perl --prefix=$HOME/tools
 +  $> make
 +  $> make install
 +
 +That's it -- ImageMagick is ready.
 +
 +If you want to use the tool from within PHP and it complains about not finding gs use the following in your script to fix the PATH:
 +
 +<code php>
 +putenv('PATH='.getenv('PATH').':/path/to/your/home/tools/bin');
