While attempting to convert an image for a grub splash screen, an image conversion is needed is needed. All references I find for this task are "convert" but cannot find. Are there image conversion tools available on this flavor of linux? If not, how do I aquire and install?

Since you know the name of the command you are almost there.

If you type the following you will see a list of packages that have a file named "convert"
yum provides "*/convert"

Open in new window


Then if there are more than 1 result like there is for convert, just look at the descriptions and try to find the appropriate package.  In this case it's most likely the following:

ImageMagick-6.5.4.7-5.el6.x86_64 : An X application for displaying and manipulating images
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/convert

So to answer your question, type
yum install ImageMagick

Open in new window

Good solution, I probably should use yum for all instead of downloading the rpm and installing by hand. Thanks!
