Install RMagick gem
July 31, 2012

Hello to everyone,

today, since I couldn’t find any Dicom viewer for Linux, I had to install RMagick together with ruby-dicom. While installing RMagick  gem, I got this error:


checking for Magick-config... no
Can't install RMagick 2.3.0. Can't find Magick-config in

So, since the ImageMagick default installation on my Ubuntu is not complete I had to install  libmagick9-dev in this way:

sudo apt-get install libmagick9-dev

This solved my problem!!!

Enjoy and share!!!


Addendum: on latest Ubuntu version, this package has been substitute by graphicsmagick-libmagick-dev-compat
