libdmtx on GNU/Linux

1. Installing libdmtx on GNU/Linux

libdmtx can be installed on GNU/Linux using the General Instructions. However, please see below for additional details that might benefit users on this platform.

2. Installing Pre-Compiled Binaries

Debian users are the big winners because libdmtx is available in the main testing and unstable repositories (although not in stable yet). The Debian package is named "libdmtx-utils".

On Ubuntu Server, ImageMagick may install incorrectly but without errors since the server version does not come with installed image libraries and no GUI (GTK or KDE) so it doesn't correctly define the needed functions. Installing under Ubuntu Desktop edition works with no special modifications.

3. Anything Else?

Is something missing from these instructions? If you spent hours searching for a solution that you feel should be included here then please update this page directly.
