When Installing Open Atrium or Drupal sometimes noification show up this :
GD Image Filtering Low Quaity/Poor Performance
GD Image Rotation Low Quaity/Poor Performance
GD Library rotate and desaturate effects
It’s not such a big deal but anyway cant stand it I want everything looking green 😛
What we have to do is recompile php5 with bundled support for GD
Install these: build tools, debian helpers and fakeroot
$ apt-get install build-essential debhelper fakeroot
Go to /usr/src :
$ cd /usr/src
Download PHP source
$ apt-get source php5
Install PHP5 packages
$ apt-get build-dep php5
$ cd php5-5.2.6.dfsg.1/ $ cd debian/ $ sudo nano rules
--with-gd=shared,/usr --enable-gd-native-ttf \
replace it with:
--with-gd=shared --enable-gd-native-ttf \
$ cd ..
Now this will take some minutes while it compiles…
Build php5 packages, remember you should be in /usr/src/hp5-5.2.6.dfsg.1/ directory otherwise it will say an error.
$ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
Note: If it shows up error for the reason of language(locales)
configure locales with en_US.UTF-8 by typing:
$ dpkg-reconfigure locales
When finished go to /usr/src:
$ cd ..
Install the new php5-gd package:
$ dpkg -i php5-gd_5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny9_amd64.deb
Note:depends on cpu structure, anyway, its the file that starts with php5-gd_5.2.6…..
Now restart your Apache server and you’re good to go:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Hope it helped 🙂
One thought on “PHP5 GD Bundled Support Fix”
I have the same problem with gd. I can’t access the php files because I uploaded my website on my webserver and access is denied to me.
The REAL problem is that none of the images on the website are shown, which is weird because I uploade THE SAME website on another webserver and although the same GD problem exists but the images are all shown!
I am on windows 7, using drupal 7, my webhost doesnt let me modify the php files (I have so few priviliges).
