# pkg install execline
Updating repository catalogue
The following 1 packages will be installed:

	Installing execline: 1.08

The installation will require 955 kB more space

0 B to be downloaded

Proceed with installing packages [y/N]: y
Checking integrity...pkg: WARNING: locally installed ImageMagick-nox11-,1 conflicts on /usr/local/bin/import with:
	- execline-1.08


Perhaps both packages could contain a /usr/local/bin/import that is an exec-wrapper and will launch the correct `import` program. The ImageMagic `import` program doesn't take any short  command-line options, and the execline `import` program doesn't take any long command-line options. Both packages could check for the existence of the exec-wrapper and either add it if it's missing or skip and continue if it exists. This requires cooperation between the two port maintainers.
How-To-Repeat: # pkg install ImageMagic-nox11
# pkg install execline

Adopted ImageMagick take pr's
Comment 2 Koop Mast freebsd_committer 2014-06-17 20:23:26 UTC
I'm not sure I can do anything about this, import is a very well known ImageMagick command.
Comment 3 Colin Booth 2017-04-28 05:31:58 UTC

I know this bug is ancient, but it's soon to be a non-issue. execline's import has been deprecated in the next major release (, waiting on approval by the freebsd package merger folks) and will be going away in the next-next major release ( This is doable because import is a convenience wrapper around importas, so with only a bit of work you can get the same effect out of importas.

execline is now
Comment 5 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2018-01-11 14:11:20 UTC
... but still has bin/import...
Comment 6 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-01-11 19:40:42 UTC


It is only needed to copy  in the stagedirectory import to a another name e.g. importval or importvalue, and change it in the  pkg-plist.
(Maybe, a pkg-message "import has changed name to ...."
Comment 7 crest 2018-09-05 08:30:39 UTC
The latest release of execline removed the import command from the language after lots of grumbling. This solves the conflict between execline and ImageMagick.
Comment 8 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2018-09-20 19:08:45 UTC
Fixed because lang/execline no longer has an import-command.
Comment 9 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2018-09-20 19:09:36 UTC
Ups, CONFLICTS needs to be adapted.
Comment 10 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2018-09-21 18:37:50 UTC
Committed, fixed, thanks to all involved.
