imagemagick update breaks windowmaker

Post by hueypokerbrainz »

I'm running Archlinux and upgraded to imagemagick version
Now when I run startx to start my window manager (which is window maker), the X sessions begins, then ends, and I'm left with this message:

wmaker: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I then have to downgrade to version to get wmaker to work.

Don't know if this is an imageMagick problem, a window maker problem, or an Arch linux package problem, but I have to start somewhere.

Thanks for your help!

Version 7.0.9 had an SO version bump to 7. You can an a symbolic link from to That should resolve the problem.
