Image Magick

apt install imagemagick
apt update
apt install build-essential
apt build-dep imagemagick

but you might need some special parameters (check the installation docs for details on all the configurations available parameters) for ex.:

./configure --with-perl=no --with-magick-plus-plus=no --enable-shared --with-gs-font-dir=/usr/share/fonts/type1/gsfonts --x-includes=/usr/include/X11 --x-libraries=/usr/lib/X11

Now we can proceed with the actual compilation:

make and if there are no errors with the installation: make install (this will install the files under /usr/local, since we have not overwritten the default prefix). As a reminder that older software might not compile on newer and modern OSs (compilers, libraries, etc) the compilation fails on recent Debian Etch versions with: png.c: In function 'WriteOneJNGImage': png.c:7639: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules png.c:7705: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules make[1]: [png.lo] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/ImageMagick-5.5.7/coders' make: [all-recursive] Error 1 This is caused by newer versions of libpng12, and in order to compile imagemagick successfully I had to install version 1.2.8rel-7 (opposed to the latest version that is currently installed on etch 1.2.13-4)

Once the installation is completed we can verify the version we installed is working fine with:
