Description André Mondri 2007-02-21 12:54:10 UTC

i entered my ImageMagick Path to LocalSettings.php and everthing seems to work fine.

But in some Cases it does not work at MediaWiki to thumbnail some Pics.

Example :

The Picture lochner-weltgericht.jpg works fine as [[Bild:lochner-weltgericht.jpg|right]]

but not as : [[Bild:lochner-weltgericht.jpg|thumb|right]]

Errormessage : "Fehler beim Erstellen des Vorschaubildes: sh: line 
1: /usr/local/IM6/bin/: is a directory "

Supportrequest at my Webhoster says it has to be a MediaWiki Problem. At my vBulletin 
Installation on the same Server all Thumbails works well with the same ImageMagick.

My ImageMagick Path is : $wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/local/IM6/bin/";

Same Problem at some (not all!) *.gifs and *.jpgs

That settings is for a *command*, not a *path*. In your case, it probably should be:

$wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/local/IM6/bin/convert";
Comment 2 André Mondri 2007-02-21 13:00:22 UTC
So why is this not documented at the Configurationinstructions? Thanks ...

Well, which instructions?

* The word "command" appears in the name
* The default and example values point to commands
* There's exhaustive commenting on it in includes/DefaultSettings.php, near
$wgImageMagickConvertCommand and $wgCustomConvertCommand
*$wgImageMagickConvertCommand, while
cryptic at the moment, *does* indicate that this is a command, not a path
