  • ImageMagicK decided to stop working today

    For some reason my ImageMagicK stopped working for no apparent reason.

    I've followed all directions in this thread:

    It still is not working. The error I am left with in the admin CP is:

    "ImageMagick doesn't have freetype support. Compile with ./configure -lfreetype"

    Freetype IS installed (and always was...). I've reinstalled it just to be sure. No change. If I run the noted configure command on imagemagick, the response is this: |freetype unrecognized option

    Any tips appreciated?

    its configure -Lfreetype ... which I think needs to be changed.

    let me go look at my mac, I had to smack it around alot to get its problems fixed.

          ImageMagick stopped working today on my forums as well.

          I'm getting this error:

          ImageMagick Error
          Try installing Ghostscript and then reinstall ImageMagick.

          I sent a support ticket in to my server host, he said nothing on his end has changed.

            Are you sure nothing has changed? Did you upgrade vB?

              Mine was not installed. I installed it to use it instead of GD. but I'm having the exact same problem.
