imagemagick gui
« on: May 24, 2020, 06:26:02 am »
Dear all,

I am a new user, having just installed peppermint 10. Earlier about six years ago, I used Ubuntu for two years. It was a good experience, then I received a new laptop from office and got back to Windows. This time I am really liking peppermint 10 especially due to its minimalist nature.

I am writing for a help. I need to convert pdf/image to image/pdf. Default pdf viewer x reader or the default image viewer x viewer is not capable of doing this. After a bit of research I found that Imagemagick can convert pdf to various image files and vice versa. I can see that Peppermint does come with Imagemagick but the only issue is, I can't see the GUI of this programme. It seems that Imagemagick is a command line programme.

My question to you, is there any way to work with Imagemagick with a GUI (like we do in Windows). It would be great help if you have any response to it.

Thank you in advance.

imagemagic has not shipped with peppermintOS for several releases... it IS NOT part of the Peppermint 10 ISO. How did you install it?

Firstly, in order to help us help you, please give us the terminal output from
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
PeppermintOS 10 Respin currently installed  on:
'16 Antec Aria rebuild
& '18 Asus VivoBook

Do not despair, grasshopper...
    with patience all will be revealed...
       Through pain, enlightenment will come.

Hi ukdas, welcome to Peppermint. You can convert pdf to image using gimp and image to pdf in lebreoffice draw.
What was I thinking?
