Installs ImageMagick and optionally Rmagick (RubyGem).



Tested on:

  • Ubuntu (10.04)
  • RHEL (6.1, 5.7)


To install just ImageMagick,

include_recipe "imagemagick"

In your own recipe/cookbook. To install the development libraries,

include_recipe "imagemagick::devel"

To install the RubyGem rmagick,

include_recipe "imagemagick::rmagick"

Which will install imagemagick, as well as the development libraries for imagemagick (so rmagick can be built).
