ImageMagick GUI app is installed by default
Closed, ResolvedPublic


ImageMagick is installed by default on the desktop with PureOS3 beta. This does not make sense.

it is most probably a dependency on something (do we have inkscape in defaults?).

Over the years I've had all the creative apps (Inkscape, GIMP, Krita, Scribus, Blender, MyPaint, Calligra, etc.) installed and I never saw ImageMagick installed, I didn't even know a GUI existed for it ;) so given that PureOS3 beta doesn't have any creative apps preinstalled, I don't see where this thing appeared from.

We have tools to find out why stuff is in the default install :-)
Admittedly, I haven't made any nice web UI for this yet:

--> ImageMagick is in there because cups-filters depends on it.

Both cups-filters and inkscape recommend imagemagick.

PureOS installs recommendations by default - you can remove them if you know they are not needed for your particular use case, but including imagemagick by default is not a bug.
