Hi community!

Being a noob, I need som help here.  I've installed Turnkey Linux in Hyper-V enviroment, and it runs smooth! However, for a WordPress plugin called Document Gallery, I need the image handling features of Ghostscript

Can anyone tell me, step by step, how to add that to my LAMP?!?

Best regards

Uhm, that's almost embarrasing how easy that was.

  1. In Webmin, I wen't to System > Software Packages
  2. Chose Install a New Package > Package from APT
  3. Search APT
  4. Entered Ghostscript
  5. Install

After the install I rebooted the webserver. To make Document Gallery plugin recognize Ghostscript I removed and re-added it again. Then it works.




Using Turnkey WordPress and I LIKE it :)

Webmin is pretty handy like that. It how I first started with TurnKey oh so many years ago! :)

Now I've got a bit comfortable I rarely ever use it. I'm not sure if I would have believed it if someone else told me this years ago, but it is honestly so much better than using a GUI!

So FWIW here's how you could achieve the same thing from the commandline:

Update local database of all package info:

apt-get update

Search for sequence "ghostscript" in package name, short description and long description:

apt-cache search ghostscript

Search just package name & short description:

apt-cache search ghostscript | grep ghostscript

Install desired package:

apt-get install ghostscript

Restart Apache (rather than having to reboot the server, obviously only applies to webserver/webapp config changes):

service apache2 restart
