Title: Cannot install 1.4.5 on OSX 10.10.1
Post by: neilmowbray on March 03, 2015, 01:21:42 am
Hello Folks,

New to Scribus. When I try to install at the stage of selecting
the destination drive I get error:

Scribus 1.4.5 can't be installed on this disk. This build of Scribus
requires max OS X 10.5 / Leopard or later ...

I am using an Intel Mac Air with OSX 10.10.1. It has a single disk
with a case sensitive file system.

Any ideas?

Neil

That is odd. Where did you get the install file from ?

I assume that is the official download link.

hi neil

try the .dmg (http://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus/1.4.5/scribus-1.4.5.dmg/download) from the same location.

I was going to suggest that but if Neil can hold on a little while it might help Kunda to get more diagnostic information from him that might help to fix what could be a problem with the PKG.

If he's really desperate to get Scribus installed - and why not? - then that's fine, of course, but if he could wait a little it could help a lot of people.

Just thought it might help to mention this.

P.S. Neil: In case you were unaware, the full Mac installation instructions can be found here: http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/OS_X_-_Installing_Scribus_on_your_Mac_the_easy_way
