I'm trying to configure the path to ImageMagick in XCGallery, and can't figure it out. I know this is a stupid question but I seem to be having a particularly 'thick' day:

My host says they have ImageMagick on the server, I asked for the path and they gave me these instructions:

ImageMagick utility and libraries is located in standarad path ie. utilities is in /usr/bin/. and libraries in /usr/include and /usr/lib/. Please refer to your programming manual on how to call it from your script.

I've entered all of these paths in the XCGallery preferences (Path to ImageMagick/Netpbm 'convert' utility) but I can't get it working. I'm thinking that I'm missing part of the path...can anyone hazard a guess ?

I'm running both xcgallery and xoopsgallery. I had trouble with my path to the convert utility also. Luckily with xoopsgallery I was able to "Check Image Magick" in the xoopsgallery admin which gave me the path to the convert utility.

Mine was something like this /usr/X11R6/bin/convert

Then I went into xcgal and added /usr/X11R6/bin/ to get it to work. It's a long method, cause you probably don't want to install both gallery modules, but is worth a try if you get really stuck

Dee's metod will work under most circumstances. One method that has always workd for me is to use the GD libraries, which most servers have configured for version 1 or 2.

There are other server requirements that I can't quite think of right now, but I'm almost positive that GD will work under most conditions; at least thats been my luck so far on all servers I've worked on.
