RMagick


#1

I installed the ImageMagick binary but when I try to install RMagick
(gem) I get the foloowing error-
/usr/local/bin/ruby extconf.rb install rmagick
checking for Ruby version >= 1.8.2… yes
checking for gcc… yes
checking for Magick-config… no
Can’t install RMagick 2.9.1. Can’t find Magick-config in /usr/local/
bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/
X11/bin:/usr/local/git/bin

*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.

What do I need to do?

I Ran into some problems with Rmagick after upgrading to Ubuntu 9.04. I
tried to fix by reinstalling the Rmagick Gem, got the same error as
above. I ended up installing librmagick-ruby and friends, this fixed my
Rmagick problem,but I still can install as gem, which would be my
prefferance.

I post here if I find solution.

Did you install libmagick*-dev?

I just checked and I do not have them installed, even though I thought I
did. After installing libmagick*-dev, I was able to install the rmagick
gem.

Thanks,
