php5 compile woes: undefined function imagettftext


well, that's pretty much the problem, I get: [CODE]Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagettftext()[\CODE] when I run, eg. the following
Code:
<?php
 DEFINE ("TTF_DIR","/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/" );

$im = imagecreatetruecolor (400, 100);
$black = imagecolorallocate ($im, 0, 0, 0);
$white = imagecolorallocate ($im, 255, 255, 255);

imagerectangle ($im,0, 0,399,99 ,$black);
imagefilledrectangle ($im,0, 0,399,99 ,$white);

imagettftext ($im, 30, 0, 10, 40 , $black, TTF_DIR. "arial.ttf", "Hello World!");

header ("Content-type: image/png" );
imagepng ($im);	
?>
This is my config line:
Code:
./configure --with-apxs --with-mysql=/usr/share/mysql --with-unixODBC --with-pgsql
--with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mysql_config --with-xmlrpc --with-gd --enable-gd-native-ttf 
--with-jpeg-dir=/usr --with-png -with-ttf-dir=/usr/lib --with-zlib-dir=/usr/include/zlib 
--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/lib
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Brian

A quick guess would be php looking for libfreetype in the wrong place.

It would seem that way, but I did specify the path to libfreetype in the configuration.

ask the mighty ldd if it is where it thinks it is

ldd /path/to/php <-- this will tell you if, what and where the libs php knows about reside

or if you just want to see if it knows about libfreetype.so

ldd /path/to/php | grep libfreetype

Indeed I get
Code:
        libfreetype.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.so.6 (0xb7e17000)
which seems to be okay.

Thanks for teaching me the ldd command. :=)

after all that......

I also had this very same problem. Even though i compiled/linked against the freetype library (many-many times!) and verified it using ldd (as described above) I still received the error.

The problem, it turns out, is that I had two php executables, one in "/usr/bin" and one in "/usr/local/bin"

after "make install" the output was being installed in "/usr/bin" but my path was picking up the "/usr/local/bin" which had an older (non-freetype linked) php executable.

If, like me, you have tried everything suggested on the internet (including the previous posts here), then check you don't have two copies of php...
