rmagick and imagemagick

I am having issues loading imagemagick and rmagick on webfaction.

I have installed a rails app called balder that organizes images.

my main problem is that i can’t seem to upoload the image sthrough balder.

balder uses imagemagick and rmagick

when i use the console and do this:

irb(main):003:0> require ‘RMagick’

=> nil

I don’t think rmagick is working – anyone have any ideas?

thx

I am having issues loading imagemagick and rmagick on webfaction.

balder uses imagemagick and rmagick

Well, checking deeper, it seems to use mini_magick by default

and only optionally uses rmagick.

when i use the console and do this:

irb(main):003:0> require ‘RMagick’

=> nil

I don’t think rmagick is working – anyone have any ideas?

This page:

https://github.com/espen/balder

says:

  • ImageMagicK. Carrierwave can use either RMagicK or MiniMagicK (default). To change resize option the correct gem must be used (specified in Gemfile) and change included setting for Carrierwave in file_uploader.rb

Can be installed from: http://www.imagemagick.org

Looking into that file:

Include RMagick or ImageScience support

include CarrierWave::RMagick

include CarrierWave::ImageScience

include CarrierWave::MiniMagick

Did you change these default settings?

Looking into the Gemfile:

https://github.com/espen/balder/blob/master/Gemfile

– Photo resizing

MiniMagick

gem “mini_magick”

ImageMagick:

#gem “rmagick”, :require => ‘RMagick’

FreeImage:

#gem “RubyInline”

#gem “image_science”, :git => ‘git://github.com/perezd/image_science.git

So, probably, if you want to activate rmagick for CarrierWave, you should uncomment

the line with “rmagick” and rerun bundle install after that.

But, I would first check why the upload functionality does not work with the

default mini_magick that is most probably installed.

But then again … this file

resources/DummyHTML/css/joshuaclayton-blueprint-css-05312a805eca539ab85e435cfd94bdedfd12ab2e/lib/blueprint/grid_builder.rb

also tries to require ‘rmagick’ and install the gem ‘rmagick’…

HTH,
