I'm trying to install RMagick on Kubuntu Dapper using Rubygems. My installation is failing with the following error message: configure: error: Can't install RMagick. Can't find Magick-config or GraphicsMagick-config program. ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError) ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. Gem files will remain installed in /usr//lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.5 for inspection. Results logged to /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.5/gem_make.out ------------------------------------------------- /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rmagick-1.15.5/gem_make.out is an empty file. My guess is that there's something I need to install, but I haven't the foggiest what package. I've browsed through Synaptic, but I don't see an obvious development package I've missed. Could someone offer me a little help here? Thanks in advance ---Michael

Going to the Ubuntu packages site (http://packages.ubuntu.com/) and entering that name in the search contents of packages field, you'll find that the package you need is called libmagick9-dev (note: I don't use Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, so I can't test my suggestion.) I hope this helps Stefano
