GD library not found


I’m trying to install piwik on my webserver, but I get a message saying that it cannot find GD library so, sparklines will not be available.

After recompiling php to include the GD library, I still get the same issue.
I tried print_r( gd_info() ), and the result I get back is:

[GD Version] => bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
[FreeType Support] =>
[T1Lib Support] =>
[GIF Read Support] => 1
[GIF Create Support] => 1
[JPEG Support] => 1
[PNG Support] => 1
[WBMP Support] => 1
[XPM Support] => 1
[XBM Support] => 1
[JIS-mapped Japanese Font Support] =>

So, Any ideas, why the installer doesn’t recognise the GD library?

Thank you in advance!

Found the issue. Turns out Freetype (TTF) wasn’t installed with my php configuration.

Problem is, this wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the install page.

thanks for the report, I added suggestion in System Check page in Admin menu + usability improvements · Issue #2122 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub
