Convert PDF to JPG: error message!

I assume that with Linux things like converting a PDF to a JPG shouldn’t be a problem. Well, not quite. But guess what the problem is: it is a permission issue. To achieve this you have to change the permissions in a file. In this case it is

/etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml

In that file you have to change the line

 <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PDF" />

to

 <policy domain="coder" rights="read | write" pattern="PDF" />

You might want to change the other lines as well.

Then converting from PDF to PS, PS2,PS3,EPS,JPG, and XPS should work like a charm.
