Ghostscript is a suite of programs and scripts which deal with printing of
files and related tasks, such as converting from postscript to
PDF and vice versa. It is available on all three major platforms
and can be downloaded from two different sites on the Internet.

If Scribus had never been invented you would still find
Ghostscript very useful. I recommend that you invest the time in
downloading it and installing it on your platform. Since I have
never dealt with Macs I cannot help your further.
