2014-03-18 12:40:00 James Lewis description There appears to be several people online reporting issues with php5-gd in Debian & Ubuntu which are complaining about missing functions. I felt that it was worth captuing as this may be a packaging issue, I've tested on 14.04 latest and I can replicate the issue... it is fine on RedHat however, for example. To quote some existing posts on the subject:- "The version Ubuntu uses misses some functions like imagerotate and imageantialias, which are needed by an increasing number of software projects." The issue can be replicated as follows:- "Make sure you have php5-cli, php5-gd, rpm and mc installed. First, check if you even have a problem. On the commandline type: php -r "var_dump(function_exists('imageantialias'));" This will return bool(false) if you are missing the function imageantialias(), and bool(true) if the function is pressent."
