Problems with PCL to PDF

Post by seann »


I'm very new to ImageMagick so please bear with me.

I'm having trouble getting ImageMagick to convert PCL files into PDF files.

OS: Ubuntu 11.10
ImageMagic: 8:
hp2xx: 3.4.4-8

Code: Select all

# convert COA.pcl COA.pdf
sh: pcl6: not found
convert: no decode delegate for this image format `/tmp/magick-XXMCKCB0' @ error/constitute.c/ReadImage/533.
convert: PCL delegate failed `COA.pcl' @ error/pcl.c/ReadPCLImage/363.
convert: missing an image filename `COA.pdf' @ error/convert.c/ConvertImageCommand/2940.
My understanding is that hp2xx is the PCL delegate and since this is installed I'm not sure what the problem would be?

Thanks you very much in advance.
