I wrote some CGI software for one linux server that relies upon the "convert" command to change a postscript file into a JPEG (they're graphs). My home computer and the server both had the convert command and so I just busted a system() call (the source is C++). However, now I have to port the CGI to run off of a laptop running ubuntu linux (don't ask why) and it doesn't have convert. When I try and use convert at the command line it says "bash: convert: command not found". How do I get convert onto this system so I can use it in my CGI? Thanks mucho,
