Hi when I try to convert a pdf file in windows to a jpg or whatever graphicsmagick crashs.
I've tried the -debug switch with following result: "gm convert: Request did not return an image."
Is there a way to find out what's happening?
Regards
Vlad

  • Do you have Ghostscript installed on your system? If so, what version (I seem to have 9.02 here)?
    Ghostscript is definitely needed to read PDF.

    By "crash" do you mean that a Windows dialog comes up that says the app did something bad and would you like to report it to Microsoft, or do you mean something else?

    Use

    gm convert -verbose file.pdf file.jpg

    to see how Ghostscript is being executed.

    Use

    gm convert -debug exception file.pdf file.jpg

    to see the detailed location of any reported exception.

  • I should mention that since GraphicsMagick binaries are 32 bit, you must install a 32-bit build of Ghoscript. A 64-bit build would not work.
