graphicsmagick and ffmpeg not recognized

Hi all,

I have a virtual private server with root access. I wanted to make use of ffmpeg and graphicsmagick. All tools have been installed on the command line (Debian 9.8 running).

Testing on the command line "ffmpeg" and "gm convert" works perfectly. Next, I made the changes to the user_setup.php like this:


// Path to ImageMagick on your server, if it is in a non-standard location.
define('MAGICK_PATH', 'gm convert');

// Path to ffmpeg on your server
define('FFMPEG_PATH', '/usr/bin/ffmpeg');

// By default, Koken makes requests in parallel to improve performance.
// On some hosts, this can cause you to exceed your resource allotment.
// Uncomment this line and/or lower the number if you are having issues.
// define('MAX_PARALLEL_REQUESTS', 4);

define('DARKROOM_MAGICK_MEMORY', false);
define('DARKROOM_MAGICK_MAP', false);

However, even afther cleaning the system cache, Koken only shows GD for image processing and no ffmpeg support.

What do I do wrong?
