I’ve had a problem with ImageMagick in my Rails application. It will upload GIF’s but not other image type. I searched for ImageMagick and it seems like I have multiple versions installed. I installed version 6.9.0 from source but it appears that an earlier version was installed. Can someone tell me if this looks right? If it isn’t how to I fix it?
find / -name ImageMagick /usr/lib/x8664-linux-gnu/ImageMagick-6.7.7 /usr/share/ImageMagick-6.7.7 /usr/share/man/man1/ImageMagick.1.gz /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ImageMagick++.pc /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ImageMagick-6.Q16.pc /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ImageMagick.pc /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ImageMagick+±6.Q16.pc /usr/local/lib/ImageMagick-6.9.0 /usr/local/etc/ImageMagick-6 /usr/local/include/ImageMagick-6 /usr/local/include/ImageMagick-6/magick/ImageMagick.h /usr/local/share/ImageMagick-6 /usr/local/share/man/man1/ImageMagick.1 /usr/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6 /usr/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6/images/ImageMagick.ico /usr/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6/www/api/MagickCore/ImageMagick8h-source.html /usr/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6/www/api/MagickCore/ImageMagick_8h.html /usr/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6/www/ImageMagickObject.html /usr/local/share/doc/ImageMagick-6/www/Magick++/ImageMagick.png /etc/ImageMagick
Can I just delete “/usr/local/lib/ImageMagick-6.9.0” to fix my problem? How can I do a clean install?
Also, when I run which convert, I get the following.
which convert /usr/local/bin/convert
