Installing RMagick on Ubuntu Maverick

Jan 2, 2011

Installing RMagick can be an adventure to say the least. It seems to me like sometimes it goes great, then the next time you’re all afternoon.

Here are steps I had to go through for installing it on Ubuntu 10.10 that hopefully will help somebody down the road. That somebody may be me, you never know.

sudo apt-get install imagemagick graphicsmagick
sudo apt-get install libgraphicsmagick
sudo apt-get install libmagickcore-dev libmagickwand-dev

gem install rmagick
