I have a Python program that imports from PIL. It works from the command line.
When I import my program into a wsgi application program it gets past the importation of PIL, but says “The
_imagingft C module is not installed”, on this line of my program:
height = pt2px(font.getsize(test_string))
My wsgi is running in a virtual environment under gunicorn as per one of your tutorials. Something in the virtual environment is different from the system functions, and I tried a lot of links to find out what, but I’m stuck.
How can I make sure my virtual environment has the same functions as the system?
