How to install the WMF Component of ImageMagick

I'm running a Debian 6.0 server on which I have successfully installed Apache, PHP, MySQL, and various PHP plugins, including ImageMagick.  I am trying to use ImageMagick to convert some WMF files to a useable format.  I installed the following components successfully and then rebooted the machine:
# apt-get install imagick-bin
# apt-get install php5-imagick
# apt-get install libwmf-bin

Open in new window

I have the following PHP code:
<?php
try{
	$filename = 'foo.wmf';
	$im = new Imagick();
	$h = fopen($filename, 'rb');
	$im->readImageFile($h);
	$im->setImageFormat('png');
	
	header("Content-Type: image/png");
	print $im->getImageBlob();
}catch(Exception $e){
	echo $e->getMessage();
}
?>

Open in new window

But when I run this code, I get the following message:
unable to open file `/tmp/magick-XXK6kbGr': @ error/constitute.c/ReadImage/572
ImageMagick works when I try to convert a JPEG file, but not this WMF file.

What is going wrong?

Hello

Did you enable the extension in php.ini?
If you do a <? phpinfo()  ?> can you find anything about ImageMagick?

Thanks for your responses!  Here is what phpinfo() says about ImageMagick:

phpinfo() on ImageMagic extension
I'm using the "apt-get" utility in Debian to install everything.  I said in my initial post that I have already run "apt-get install libwmf-bin", which I believe is the command that installs libwmf.  If it means anything, there are four packages that start with "libwmf" available to apt-get install:
libwmf0.2-7  libwmf-bin   libwmf-dev   libwmf-doc
Would it be beneficial to additionally install one of those?

Any other suggestions?

To follow up with my last post, I ran this command:
apt-get install libwmf*

Open in new window

I rebooted the computer, but I'm stillg etting the same error.

How do you use iMagik in the command line so that I can see whether it's PHP's problem or iMagik's problem?

Okay, I found a way to make it work.  I ran the command:
apt-get install imagemagick

Open in new window

It seems that I had never actually installed ImageMagick!  Wow…
