Quote from: GarryP on October 14, 2014, 01:42:42 PMTo expand on utnik's answer a little bit, in case anyone is interested, this issue is not Scribus-specific.It actually comes from the way OSX - from Mountain Lion (10.8.?) onwards - handles application installations that haven't come through the AppStore. It's a feature of OSX called Gatekeeper that tries to stop applications installing/running that it doesn't already trust.Here's an explanation with an alternative way of changing the settings more generally: http://osxdaily.com/2013/11/08/bypass-gatekeeper-mac-os-x-security-prefs/The pros and cons of Gatekeeper can be debated endlessly elsewhere on the web.

This is more than I can chew, my computer/Mac knowledge is pretty basic so I don't understand what they are talking about in the first link and when I clicked in the second my Mac is telling me that Ghostscript can harm my computer so I did not downloaded it. My big worry is to install something that will screw up my Mac. Is this Ghostscript really necessary for using Scribus?utnik

QuoteIs this Ghostscript really necessary for using Scribus?
Quoteghostscript is used for .eps and .ps import and for .ps export (maybe for something else too) – most functions in scribus will work without gs. if you don't like the idea to install it, keep your system ghostscript free as long as you don't need it...utnik
