Files to DL:
OSX 10.4.8 is able to decompress bz2 and tar (decompress both (simple
doubleclick) until you have plain folders or file(s) of each)
scribus goes to "/Applications/"
ghostscript.framework goes to "/Library/Frameworks/
Start scribus. Scribus will complain about the missing postscript
interpreter. That's okay for this time.
go to scribus "prefs" - go to "external tools" - enter:
for the path of the postscript interpreter
The first time scribus starts up it may need time to write its font
cache, - depending on how much fonts are installed in your system.
