Openshift > Setup Python Image Library with support jpg, zlib and freetype

Hello everyone! Today I was trying to add captcha field to my form and faced with little problem with PIL. By default it doesn't support a lot of needed libraries! I've got many useful info from here and here. With this docu I was afraid that I couldn't setup PIL correctly on my host mashine on Openshift. But result was successful. So I'd like to share with you my experience.

First af all we need to create for PIL all required symlinks.

For 32-bit Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62 libjpeg-dev libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev zlib1g-dev
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

Or for 64 bits architecture:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg libjpeg-dev libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev zlib1g-dev
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

Or for my favourite Openshift:

ln -s /usr/lib64/ $VIRTUAL_ENV/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib64/ $VIRTUAL_ENV/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib64/ $VIRTUAL_ENV/lib/

The next step is to download and configure PIL:

mkdir ~/src
cd ~/src
tar -xzvf PIL-1.1.7.tar.gz
cd PIL-1.1.7

Now we need to edit file and specify paths to libraries (symlinks). Find in the following lines and replace them:


JPEG_ROOT = '/usr/lib64','/usr/include'
ZLIB_ROOT = '/lib64','/usr/include'
FREETYPE_ROOT = '/usr/lib64','/usr/include/freetype2/freetype'

Now let's save it and build:

python build_ext -i

We should see the following info:

version       1.1.7
platform      linux2 2.7.3 (default, May 18 2012, 14:51:16)
              [GCC 4.4.6 20110731 (Red Hat 4.4.6-3)]
--- TKINTER support available
--- JPEG support available
--- ZLIB (PNG/ZIP) support available
--- FREETYPE2 support available
--- LITTLECMS support available

Great. Now let's install PIL:

python install

That's it. Now you can use all needed libraries from python code.
