imagemagick is one of the best library to work with image. recently i have to install it to our production server. here is what i did:
$ apt-get install imagemagick
it downloads the package and all it’s dependences from debian/ubuntu repository, and installed. now i have to install the support of php (as our product running on php)
$ apt-get install php5-imagick
then i restarted the apache server to take effect this new package installation. if your using php4 then the package name should be php4-imagick
$ /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
that’s all 🙂
if you need imagemagick for your ruby , you can install the librmagick-ruby package.
