You asked this questions week ago and you've probably solved you
problem, but I don't see any responses, so maybe my answer'll be helpful ;).

First: AFAIK there are some people speaking German around here so you
can try asking questions in this language.

Next: You probably need to tell Scribus where is ghostscript installed.
Go to File (Datei) -> Prefences (Allgemaine Einstellungen...) ->
External Tools (Externe Tools) and there type track to gs/ghostscript
file in "PostScript Interpreter" (Name der ausfuehrbaren Datei) line.

You can probably obtain the track by typing in Terminal `whereis gs` or
`whereis ghostscript`, but I'm not sure if it works on Mac.
