Installing ImageMagick 6.8.x on Ubuntu 11.04

View more posts

A quick jotting-down of the steps I followed to get a newer release of ImageMagick installed on Ubuntu 11.04.

wget http://imagemagick.mirrorcatalogs.com/ImageMagick-6.8.0-2.tar.gz
tar xvfz ImageMagick-6.8.0-2.tar.gz
cd ImageMagick-6.8.0-2/
./configure -disable-shared
sudo make
sudo make install
rm -rf ImageMagick-6.8.0-2/
sudo reboot

Note the sudo reboot.
Careful doing so on a production server.

I was in need of a newer version of ImageMagick while working on my PHP-ImageEffects library. The goal of the library was to apply Instigram filters to image resources.

Not yet all the way there, though :(
