Movable Type gives Image magick error





rjraaz
Hi guys,

today i have installed Movable Type on my localserver. Installation was OK but when open frontpage it gives following error.

Quote:
Image::Magick is not configured.

Image::Magick is either not present on your server or incorrectly configured. Due to that, you will not be able to use Movable Type's userpics feature. If you wish to use that feature, please install Image::Magick or use an alternative image driver.


Please anyone here tried MT and get this error and got relevent solution for it.

In php the imagemagick functions are all in a separate extension that needs to be uncommented in the php.ini file, plus I'm sure imagemagick itself needs to installed on the server

You can try calling the php_info() function. If the function outputs a section for imagemagick it's already uncommented. Otherwise it's functions are not available to php.

Code:
<?php
php_info();
?>

There isn't a wide variety, just 4 or so image processing choices
Of the 4, it's most likely that gd2 is installed http://us2.php.net/manual/en/book.image.php

There's also
Cairo: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/book.cairo.php
GraphicsMagick: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/book.gmagick.php

If none of them are installed and it's php extension is enabled the only hope might be doing your image processing outside of php with a system() call to a shell script, perl, python, etc.

Or you could fake the image processing on the web browser with css, a <canvas> or in flash
