I've made some tests and it looks like libmagick6 is enough to make this work, and it doesn't conflict to libmagick v7. Please let me know if you find something is wrong with new dependencies.

tuxsavvy: Yes, unfortunately, rmagick still doesn't support imagemagick 7+. Achieving the compatibility with v7 seems to be non-trivial, people have tried, but no one succeeded to this moment ( So the only relevant pull request is this:

There is also a mini_magick gem on GitHub: which is compatible with imagemagick 7+, uses less RAM and it's functionality might be enough for some tasks.

Does this package still require imagemagick6? According to the repository, supports were added to support imagemagick 6.9+:

RMagick 2.16.0
Support ImageMagick 6.9+ - @ZipoKing

imagemagic6 conflicts with imagemagick (which is already up to 7.0.7.xx)

Here you go (:

@shtrom Yes, I'd like to maintain it.

shtrom commented on 2015-07-13 00:48

And the license IS MIT [0]. I fixed that too.

Thanks for that Dmitry.

That said, I'm not really using this package anymore, so it is likely to go stale again. Care to take up maintainership?

dark-saber commented on 2015-07-11 15:08

Also, it seems that license is MIT.

Many things have changed since 2.13: repository has been moved to github, graphicsmagick support has been dropped etc.

I've created a PKGBUILD for 2.15.2, which installs rmagick as a gem (like aur/ruby-pdf-reader and many other ruby packages):

dark-saber commented on 2015-07-11 14:34

The package doesn't install, because PKGBUILDs without package() are unsupported now.
build() should be replaced with package(), and it would be nice to update version to 2.15.2 too.
