When I get to the dialog box asking the question: Do you want to open or save this file? [ghostscript-9.04.tar bz2  / 28.4 MB] -- I get trapped in an endless loop when I click either "Save" or "Open."

No matter how many times I try, the same endless loop takes place.  None of the drop down options revealed by the drop down arrows that appear next to the "Save" or "Open" buttons changes this endless loop.

6 programs ? Strange, i only need one : scribus.

AFAIK Scribus does not use ghostscript to produce PDFs so it shouldnt be a problem.
