Use librsvg / rsvg to convert SVG images with ImageMagick


I know this question has several answered version here (like this: ImageMagick convert SVG to PNG not working with RSVG enabled ), but actually I can't find a real solution to my exact problem. My problem is: I have a specific SVG file (and I will generate more) that ImageMagick inside SVG>PNG convertor process doesn't convert perfectly. So I need to change it to librsvg, because it does, I tested these 2 lines with different result:

    convert test.svg test.png  // ( img: http://tinyurl.com/px2lw3v )
    rsvg-convert test.svg -o test.png // ( img: http://tinyurl.com/lreu6sk )

I installed HomeBrew. As described here: ImageMagick convert SVG to PNG not working with RSVG enabled I used this code to install ImageMagick brew install imagemagick --use-rsvg. I realized that it not installs librsvg so I needed to uninstall it and reinstall like this: brew reinstall imagemagick --with-libsrvg librsvg --use-rsvg : this installed imagemagick & librsvg together to my mac. BUT doesn't connected them: convert -list format | grep SVG resulted as:

 MSVG  SVG       rw+   ImageMagick's own SVG internal renderer
  SVG  SVG       rw+   Scalable Vector Graphics (XML 2.9.0)
 SVGZ  SVG       rw+   Compressed Scalable Vector Graphics (XML 2.9.0)

while this: convert -list delegate | grep svg resulted as:

    svg =>          "rsvg-convert" -o "%o" "%i"

I installed & uninstalled & reinstalled them several times & ways but nothing changed and the script convert test.svg test.png do it's way without librsvg. I added lines to /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/6.8.9-1/lib/ImageMagick/config-Q16/configure.xml with tags but nothing progressed. I don't know what to do and how to connect ImageMagick and force to use different library for convert test.svg test.png.

Thank you for your help.

Solution

  • (Just adding more context to Zoltan's answer)

    Use brew info imagemagick to see available options when installing it.

    --with-librsvg
        Build with librsvg support
