    File conversion


    When I use "convert" (Imagemagick) to convert jpg to bmp or png to bmp the result displays with kolourpaint but will not save and gives a "Could not save image - unable to create temporary file" error. I use no qualifiers. Is there something I do not know about here?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Not sure, but it may be that the file system /tmp is in is full, or there is some other conflict.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    What's giving the error, Imagemagic or Kolourpaint?

    The error is from Kolourpaint. I suspect the Imagemagik's CONVERT I use is not properly converting from the .png file but don't know why. There may be a parameter I left out and don't know about.
