@ahuillet I just built this package without any errors using libmagick6- Have you tried to build it recently using the newest libmagick6?

ahuillet commented on 2018-06-24 14:34

This doesn't seem to build for me with libmagick6-

checking for presence of MagickWand API (ImageMagick version >= 6.9.0)... no Can't install RMagick 2.16.0. Can't find MagickWand.h. extconf.rb failed Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more details. You may need configuration options.

NeoRaider: Fixed, thanks!

This is missing a dependency on ruby-rdoc:

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 (:

dark-saber commented on 2015-07-13 06:45

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

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