I'm using this script: https://github.com/maddox/magick-installer

to install imagemagick and it's dependencies i have a few errors the first run for some missing files or borken links but now i have all this solved.... but when it's installing the libpng, i think, the scrip stops and trow this error:

ln: ./libtool: File exists

i don't know what to do, seems like the first run it created some symlink somewhere and not it found this symlink and stops the script.


  • had to comment one line on the script, once that creates the symbolic link

Try installing ImageMagick with HomeBrew


Once installed just type

brew install imagemagick

This will download any dependancies, compile the source and install it.
