in thread Image Manipulation Package for setting Opaqueness?

Just downloaded the latest version of Image::Magick and it seems like the Blend function was removed....
I use Image::Magick version 5.25 and perl 5.6 (on Win32) and the code runs just fine with that combination :).

    Blend seems to be replaced with Dissolve for the newer version at least. Your test code works fine...just like I was picturing. Thank you.

    However, I couldn't get the "arial.ttf" font to work. I tried copying over the font many ways from my windows machine to my linux machine (ftp, samba, etc) so I don't think that's the problem. If I change the font parameter to something like "fixed", it works fine, printing "Whoo", but it can't seem to find the arial.ttf (even when i do './arial.ttf'). Maybe linux has a fonts folder similar to c:\windows\fonts that I don't know about...?

    When I load the GUI for ImageMagick and try to manually draw a font, it gives me a huge font list with fonts seemingly already installed. It doesn't say which folder it's in and won't let me escape the folder to select other fonts. Also, none seem to have a ttf extention.
      I recall that you give ./configure a --with-ttf-fontpath flag when you compile it to have a default path, but I'm not sure about that since I mainly do Win32... and I don't relly know what other pre-requisites you need to have to do .ttf fonts on Linux. Sorry :)

      Any Linux-gurus around?

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
