Where to Get software "Ghotscript" needed to run mac DTP app "Scribus
Posted on 2008-10-03
I am a recent convert from Windows platform to Mac. I do a lot of DTP, and on my new iMac I have this DTP app installed : Scribus ver 1.33 - it installed OK - but everytime I open the program I get this error message : _"You are missing Ghostscript program. You can not use EPS or Print Preview without Ghostcript"_ I have located, downloaded and installed-as-tryout numerous downloads from all over the Net named "Ghostscript." However, none of them seem to be what Scribus is asking for. Otherwise, Scribus runs just fine, and I have no expectation of ever producing EPS files, though "Print Priview" would be nice to use.
Anybody got any idea exactly _what_ "Ghostcript" Scribus is asking for, and where I can get it?
Secondary to above question : even though I have downloaded and installed numerous apps named "Ghostcript" from various sites, when I look on my HD for Ghostcript using Finder (thinking I will likely need to uninstall, if you can find me the "right" Ghostscript ) I find only one single instance of Unix executable file "Ghostscript" located at Applications/Applescript/Ghostscript - apparently doing nothing (?!). What should I do with this install? Why do none of the so-called "Ghostscript" apps I have tried-out seem to be the correct app that Scribus is asking for?
