How to install imagemagick on Ubuntu 10.04?

The solution is to go get the latest ImageMagick version and build it yourself;

> wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick.tar.gz
> tar -xzvf ImageMagick.tar.gz
> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-x=no --disable-static --with-modules --without-perl --without-magick-plus-plus --with-quantum-depth=8 --disable-openmp
> make
> sudo make install
> sudo /sbin/ldconfig /usr/local
> sudo ln -f /usr/local/bin/Magick-config /usr/bin/Magick-config
> sudo PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/ gem install rmagick

Result

Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
