Hello, I'm trying to use imagettftext function in my script.
But it returns Call to undefined function imagettftext() .

I run phpinfo() and my PHP version is 5.2.6 on SentOS and have "--with-gd' " on cinfgure command section and on GD section it says:

GD Support  enabled  
GD Version  bundled (2.0.34 compatible)  
GIF Read Support  enabled  
GIF Create Support  enabled  
JPG Support  enabled  
PNG Support  enabled  
WBMP Support  enabled  
XPM Support  enabled  
XBM Support  enabled  

Someone sasy that I will need free-type in order to make the function work.
But I'm not expert of Linux, so I need an accurarte answer before I install something on my server.

What exactly do I need to make the function work?
Please some one adivse.
Thank you.

Note: This function requires both the GD library and the » FreeType library.

Yes, you need free-type.
