sorry to step in, but i have the feeling that in the last times there are more and more answers that don't take into account the informatics knowledges of the original posters.

are we suggesting a not too savvy -- puzzled -- os x user to read a linux book?

he just want to know if he really needs ghostscript and -- if he does -- how he can put it on his computer and start scribus without that alert.

please give him a link to the .dmg he has to download.

or tell him that he probably won't need ghostscript for now (and that he can safely click on the "ok" button).

am i too disillusioned?

have a wonderful night
