I have just downloaded imagemagick and when I try to convert a pdf file to a jpg file. I get the message no such file or directory. The file I want to convert is in Home/Downloads

Make sure you are in the same directory as the file. For example, if the file is in /home/username/Downloads, enter:

Code:
cd /home/username/Downloads
into your terminal. The nrun something like:

Code:
convert filename.pdf filename.jpg
to convert the format.

???
1)
Download ?
if download did you BUILD and INSTALL it from the source ( there is a TON of prerequisites )?
or is this the Windows .exe's and wine

what did you "download" ???

or Install using your package manager ?

2)
what is the FULL command you used ?
3)
and most important
WHAT is the FULL error ?
