      @Kehinde,

      Go to the cd ImageMagick-7.0.8-26/ directory and run the following command to remove ImageMagic7 from the system.

      # make clean

    Hi! Is there a reason for not doing it this simple way?

    $ sudo apt-get install imagemagick imagemagick-doc
    

    I had done it the way you described but then it wasn’t available in my web CMS (I was probably too stupid to link it properly). So I searched again and found the above mentioned way which was way faster and just worked. Now the website can use it.

    The 2nd question would now be: what do I need to uninstall/delete if I want to get rid of the installation as listed above?

    • Michael says:

      That works when the installation binary is already in your system. I’m not that good with Linux or for that matter Ubuntu OS, but your “simple” method did not work for me. It will always return “imagemagick” not found error.

      This article saved my day. I’m yet to add to my php
