How can i install php extension imagick and gmagick on ubuntu 18.04 LTS, i tried imagick using :

sudo apt-get -y install gcc make autoconf libc-dev pkg-config
sudo apt-get -y install libmagickwand-dev
sudo peclX.Y-sp install imagick

But got error

ubuntu@ip:~$ sudo pecl7.3-sp install imagick
sudo: pecl7.3-sp: command not found

Also tell me about gmagick, I have installed both graphicsmagick and imagemagick just need to install php extention for both of them.

I am using Php7.3 ondrej,

Installed: php7.3 php-pear php7.3-curl php7.3-dev php7.3-gd php7.3-mbstring php7.3-zip php7.3-mysql php7.3-xml
  • Please run apt search php-imagick and see if imagick shows up! Also run the search for php-gmagick if both show then install with sudo apt install php-gmagick php-imagick My version of php is 7.2 so check and let me know! – George Udosen Jan 7 '19 at 17:17

I use php7.2 but from the same repo as your version of php. Check if these packages are present with the commands

apt search php-imagick | grep php-imagick
apt search php-gmagick | grep php-gmagick

If the search turns up positive, install both with the command

sudo apt install php-gmagick php-imagick

Restart apache afterward with

sudo systemctl restart apache2
