Subject description: imagemagick packages in 18.05 seem to be incomplete
 

I've used imagemagick for so many years that I cannot live without it. Being able to manipulate photos quickly from the CLI has become a necessity.

I've recently moved to puppy 18.05 and after installing imagemagick from PPM the command line "convert" yields:

convert: command not found...

Is anyone else using imagemagic in 18.05 ???

Thanks

ccaaee

I think you'll have to create symlinks, e.g. for convert:
Code:
cd /usr/bin
ln -s convert-im6.q16 convert

Or/and similar for e.g. montage,
Code:
ln -s montage-im6.q16 montage


Ubuntu and Debian does all this symlinking automatically (from postinstall script), but apparently Puppy doesn't work that way.

EDIT: This little script will symlink them all:
Code:
#/bin/bash

cd /usr/bin
for i in *-im6.q16; do
ln -s $i "${i%%-*}"
done
