Re: Debian 9 Image Magick/display xwd(1) format




Thanks, Thomas.

My Debian 8 works OK, too. But the Image Magick for Debian 9 does not
read files made by xwd(1).

I don't know if its a compile time configuration issue, or the file
format has been depreciated, or what-but it doesn't work on Debian 9.

    Thanks,

    John
