Imagemagick directory path - need to change name of file Omeka looks for

I'm getting the ImageMagick Directory Path error on the Settings page. In the USR/Bin folder I don't have a "convert" file, but I do have a "convert-im6" file. If I make a copy of the convert-im6 file, rename it to just convert, then paste it back into the usr/bin directory then the imagemagick file directory test works fine, but I'm still not getting thumbnails on any of my items.

Where do I need to go to tell Omeka to look for the convert-im6 file instead of the convert file?

Hmm....I would've thought that that would work, but I don't know imagemagick itself well enough to reply with much certainty. It looks like the test finds the convert file, but there might be something else going on that we're not adequately testing for.

It might be worth trying both convert -version and convert-im6 -version on the command line to see if they both work, and maybe report the results back here.

A workaround might be to use one of the different derivative strategies that use PHP libraries, and see if they're on your server.

At the end of the application/config/config.ini file, look for this line:

; fileDerivatives.strategy = "Omeka_File_Derivative_Strategy_Imagick"

Remove the semicolon to try using PHP's Imagick package. With luck, it will be installed and already configured on the server to use convert-im6 correctly.

You can also try using

fileDerivatives.strategy = Omeka_File_Derivative_Strategy_GD

to use the GD package, again if it is there on your server.

I ended up using Imagick and now it's working.
