[Scribus] Ghostscript acting like an invisible ghost
Sun Dec 24 11:21:14 CET 2006
I have just installed Scribus on my eMac, under OS X 10.4.
Everything went fine and Scribus works, except for Ghostscript. The
download and installation instructions said to put the Ghostscript into
Library/Frameworks. I did this, but when I started Scribus up it said
Ghostscript is not installed, so a couple of Scribus features are
disabled. Here are the README directions:
> This is a binary of GS 8.50 under the Artifex public licence for
> MacOSX 10.3.
> It contains devices for bitmaps, png, ps, pdf and some others;
> sufficient for Scribus/Aqua.
> This binary depends on the libpng.framework from http://
> To install, move the folder Ghostscript.framework to /Library/
> The GS executable is
> in /Library/Frameworks/Ghostscript.framework/bin/
> It can be moved to any convenient locaation as long as the rest of
> the framework bundle stays
> in /Library/Frameworks/.
> Check http://aqua.scribus.net for more information.

I just checked and the executable is indeed in the bin file, with an
alias in the main folder. So I rebooted and tried Scribus again. I
still get a message saying, "The following programs are missing:
Ghostscript: You can use EPS images or Print Preview."
Does anyone have any idea what's going on here, and how to fix it?
