both 1.4 and 1.5 side by side on OS X
« on: August 20, 2015, 05:18:21 am »
If this has been answered I apologize but I could not find the topic easily in the last five minutes of searching and I am in a bit of a hurry.  Is anyone running both 1.4 and 1.5 on OS X without problems? Can both share the use of ghostscript?

Thank you in advance,

mnawij

I installed ghostscript via Homebrew the macosx package manager. Then I pointed Scribus > Preferences to the directory.

I'm running 1.4.5 (installed from DMG) and 1.5.1 (installed via Homebrew) on the same machine without any trouble. They both use the same GhostScript installation (from Homebrew).
