I have tried to install the library on both 14.04 and 15.10. Every time I type in convert -version the delegates do not contain jp2000. I have installed libopenjpeg-dev and libjpeg-dev

I have tried:

  • Installing dependencies beforehand, then installing ImageMagick
  • Installing dependencies after installing ImageMagick

But no cigar. Any suggestions?

  • I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but what is a test to determine whether ImageMagick actually as jp2000 support, or whatever it is? Apr 23, 2016 at 17:20
  • As per this top Google search result what are the contents of your corresponding delegates.xml file? The jpg libraries may not be configured to update that file, if that's what needs to happen.

  • @FaheemMitha Normally, you can do "convert -version", it'll show all available delegates. Apr 23, 2016 at 19:26

Gimp opens jp2 files and you can read write and edit. Use version from ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp. This also gives you latest Gmic also.

I am using Gimp to print my own copies of some C19th text books. Project Gutenburg Scans for example.
