I can't get this to accept any picture at all, I've tried pngs, jpegs, bmps and finally I tried a .tga which caused the application to coredump.

autotrace only needs the IM6 library and that's still available because some users of it don't support IM7 yet so I think it could be a makedepends.

And MAGICK_CFLAGS could probably be provided to override that's PKG_CHECK_MODULES that provides the -I/usr/include...

I now see what you mean. There is no good solution for this: autotrace definitely does not support imagemagick 7 yet, and the detection of imagemagick6 (which AFAIK left the repos anyway) is broken. So for now I am disabling imagemagick support.

Hi Haawda, What bit can't you confirm? shows the test of --with-magick's value is just against 'yes'; it doesn't take a path to header files. Does your configure output say 'imagemagick output support: yes'?

As for pkg-config then producing a IM7 path when IM6 is required, try having package imagemagick installed as well so pkg-config produces the biggest version that matches the criteria 'ImageMagick >= 5.2.1' on line 77.

RalphCorderoy, cannot confirm. Builds fine here both in or outside a chroot.

PKGBUILD has '--with-magick=/usr/include/ImageMagick-6' but that results in 'imagemagick output support: no' in configure's output because the test is just for 'yes' with everything else treated as 'no'.

And deleting that to get the default behaviour of 'yes' doesn't work because pkg-config is suggesting '-I/usr/include/ImageMagick-7' so the #include of magick/api.h fails as that's IM6 not IM7.

The PKGBUILD has a typo. makdepends should be makedepends...

intltool added as makedependency. Thanks.

This is missing a makedepends on intltool.

Sourceforge is down and is not very reliable lately. What about using different mirror? Github?
