ImageMagick "unable" to do many things
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
With some image displayed most of any actions on "Miscellany" menu
brings alerts like:
Unable to show histogram /tmp/magick-XXVkjgrM
It is not that surprising as a quick examination reveals that
any of /tmp/magick-* files is actually empty. Still after showing
this alert ImageMagick goes and performs a requested action anyway;
clearly on some other file.
Regardless, actions sometimes have strange side-effects. For example
"Preview" of a PNG file once painted gray the whole gnome-terminal
window from which 'display' was started and, after a short while,
killed all gnome-terminal windows around; even those which were
started as separate processes. This I cannot reproduce.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% ("unable" alerts)
"Show Histogram" works fine for me in rawhide.
