    Welcome to the forums, pawpaw!

    If you are using KDE, I was thinking that imagemagick got installed with it by default.

    If not, you should be able to install it easily by setting up urpmi through Easy URPMI and then going to the command line, su to root, and then issue this command:

    Code:
    urpmi imagemagick
    Have fun with your Manrdriva system.

    Basic commands are same for all Distributions but commands for package installation depends on the Package Manager used by distro.
    Check linuxcommand.org for basic shell commands and check this tutorial on how to install software in Linux.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
