Letter avatars out of alignment with ImageMagick update


(Christopher Heald) #1

Here I go again with the avatars…

This is probably not a bug now that 1.4 has been released, but since I am not quite ready to upgrade our live site yet, I have restricted our site to Discourse 1.4b9. However, when I rebuilt Discourse to add a plugin this week, a Discourse base image update (samsaffron/discourse:1.0.13) has brought a new version of ImageMagick with it that has left all my letter avatars vertically misaligned.

The end result is that all my letter avatars now look like this:


Prior to September 22, the ImagMagick version was 6.9.1-3 Q16 x86_64 2015-05-29, and after September 22, the version is now 6.9.2-3 Q16 x86_64 2015-09-22.

Can I downgrade ImageMagick in my container and rebuild the letter avatars, at least until I’m ready to go to the official 1.4 release?

This needs to be fixed because people are still allowed to use the local avatar generation instead of the external service.


Cleanup failing due to version mismatch

I will get a fix backported into beta and stable … in the mean time just add

base_image: samsaffron/discourse:1.0.12

To your yaml config and rebuild.

remember to take it out when you upgrade, you don’t want to be stuck on old image forever

Non-external avatars are unaligned

If anybody is wondering where they should add

base_image: "samsaffron/discourse:1.0.12"

in the yaml config file, it goes right at the top :slight_smile:

For anyone following along, I’ve isolated the problem to this commit which fixes this reported bug in ImageMagick. I have no idea yet how to fix it, but I’m going to keep chipping away at it.

Looks like it is getting fixed thanks to @mpalmer’s research !!!

The issue is now fixed in ImageMagick’s git tree (as of 60001c3). There doesn’t appear to be a tarball release yet, but I’m sure there’ll be one soonish.

Pretty sure this is all sorted now… closing!
