Follow-up: Homebrew and Thumbnails on OS X

Blog Post created by mikeh Employee on Oct 8, 2013
This post is a quick follow-up to my original article Homebrew: Share thumbnails and previews on OS X.



Some additions to the imagemagick-transform.properties file were introduced as a bug-fix to 4.1.6 Enterprise Edition and subsequently 4.2.d Community and all newer versions of Alfresco. The additions were:

img.coders=${img.root}\\modules\\coders

img.config=${img.root}\\config

img.gslib=${img.root}\\lib


As ImageMagick installed via Homebrew uses a slightly different folder structure, we'll need to override these three properties in alfresco-global.properties in order to restore thumbnail functionality in OS X.

# Overrides for imagemagick-transform.properties

img.coders=${img.root}/lib/ImageMagick/modules-Q16/coders

img.config=${img.root}/lib/ImageMagick/config-Q16

img.gslib=${img.root}/lib


That's it!

Mike
