Hi all,

I am running the 64-bit app version Sage 5.1 on a MacBookPro with Mac OS Lion.

I installed ImageMagick and verified that it is working. However, Sage "animate" command reported that ImageMagick must not be installed.

I then copied "convert" to "/tmp/sage-mac-app/local/bin" as suggested above and the "animate" command still failed and reported the error shown below:

dyld: Library not loaded: /ImageMagick-6.7.8/lib/libMagickCore.5.dylib Referenced from: /Applications/ Reason: image not found /Applications/ line 8: 574 Trace/BPT trap: 5 "$@" Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "", line 10, in <module> exec compile(u'open("","w").write("# -- coding: utf-8 -*-\n" + _support_.preparse_worksheet_cell(base64.b64decode("YT1hbmltYXRlKFtzaW4oeCArIGZsb2F0KGspKSBmb3IgayBpbiBzcmFuZ2UoMCwyKnBpLDAuMyldLHhtaW49MCwgeG1heD0yKnBpLCBmaWdzaXplPVsyLDFdKQphLnNob3coKQ=="),globals())+"\n"); execfile(os.path.abspath("")) File "", line 1, in <module>

File "/Applications/", line 457, in show self.gif(delay = delay, iterations = iterations) File "/Applications/", line 400, in gif raise OSError, msg OSError: Error: Neither ImageMagick nor ffmpeg appears to be installed. Saving an animation to a GIF file or displaying an animation requires one of these packages, so please install one of them and try again. See and for more information.

I also tried to create a link to "convert " in "/tmp/sage-mac-app/local/bin" but this also failed with an error also stating that "ImageMagick" was not installed.

At this point I don't know what else to try! Is there anyway that ImageMagick could be included in the Sage distributions in the future?
