Talk:MacOSX version of Scribus

From Scribus Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Two questions:

- Why isn't Ghostscript mentioned here?
- If it can be mentioned, can we post or at least link to installation instructions?

My rationale for including it here: it was a pain to located a compiled ghostscript download, and then configuring scribus to find it took a few extra steps. If we want to make Scribus as accessible as possible, lets put this all here! I'll wait a week or so before just posting the info. Here's what I wanted to add:

  1. . Ghostscript is a required component for Scribus. If it comes up in an error message when the program starts, it should be mentioned ahead of time!
  2. . Link to here for .dmg installer of Ghostscript: http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/OpenPrinting/MacOSX/foomatic
  3. . Instructions for setting preferences to find Ghostscript: Open scribus and go to menu Scribus->preferences. In prefs, scroll down to 'External Tools' and click it. In the box 'Postscript Interpreter', field 'Name of Executable', type /usr/local/bin/gs

Homebrew and Scribus 1.5 on OSX 10.8 and 10.9 -- Kunda (talk) 01:22, 14 November 2013 (CET)

Is there a way to compile from source (32but and 64bit options)?
