I’m having trouble with a PHP script (specifically, a spam-blocking plug-in for Wordpress) that relies on the GD Freetype library. The script runs, but the image it produces has no text.
I did some searching in the forums here, and found this post in “General Troubleshooting” forum from October which may have pinpointed the problem:
In that post, user ‘Mark’ says that the default PHP seems to be compiled with the –with-freetype option when –with-freetype-dir was the correct option.
Was this ever fixed? Is fixing it on the horizon? The Dreamhost knowledge base specifically says that Freetype is officially supported by Dreamhost, and I would rather not take on the hassle of compiling my own PHP CGI solely to work around such a minor bug. Thanks.
