Searching my build environment for generic_profile, Downscale and Upscale in /usr/lib, /usr/include, /opt/trinity/lib, and /opt/trinity/include revealed nothing. However, searching on my normal system I finally found those declarations:

ImageMagick/magick/deprecate.h:#define Downscale(quantum)
ImageMagick/magick/deprecate.h:#define Upscale(value)
ImageMagick/magick/image.h: generic_profile

The errors were caused because I had installed GraphicsMagick and removed ImageMagick. I should be able to eliminate the latter set of errors by reinstalling ImageMagick.

That leaves me focused on the first set of errors.

Using readelf, the only file that surfaced with all of these undefined references is /usr/lib/ That file is from the ImageMagick package.

There are two sym links to that file:

I reinstalled ImageMagick in my build system. Back to square one, so to speak, because that is where the story began. As I mentioned, with ImageMagick installed I always get the "undefined references" set of errors.

I already had the following in my configure options:


The /usr/include directory is already part of the $CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH variable. I added the following to my configure options:


The build again failed. (I'm a student here. Trial and error is part of my learning curve. :) )

Next I tried amending export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib.

The build again failed.

Okay, next I try amending the As the errors are related to ImageMagick, I amended that make file.

NOpe, failed to build. Same errors.

So --- why is nobody else reporting this build problem? I suspect many TDE developers are not because koffice never was that popular. Of those who do build, why are they not having this same build problem? Is this related to the version of ImageMagick? Possibly others are building without either ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick, but when I try that most of the apps don't build.

I would like to get to the bottom of this because I always have had trouble building koffice.
