Scribus can't find Ghostscript

(1/2) > >>

I installed Scribus Version 1.4.6
03 January 2016
Build ID: C-*-T-*-C1.8.6-Windows
Windows Vista Home 32

I then downloaded and installed Ghostscript.
When I start Scribus I get an error message that Ghostscript is not installed on my system.
Went to File>Preferences>External Tools and set the correct path to Ghostscript using the change button.
Still getting the error message.
Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum Drew.

Odd one that. Are you pointing Scribus to the gswin32.exe instead of the required gswin32c.exe?
Just as a check, mine is pointing to: C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.18\bin\gswin64c.exe (for 64-bit rather than 32-bit)

Thanks for the tip Garry P. I think that is my problem. I only have gswin32.exe installed. Will look for the other version and install it.

I found a site that has gswin32c.exe and downloaded it. Put in it's own directory 'Ghost Script'. Pointed Scribus to it but still get the same error message.

in most cases you don't need ghost script.

start using scribus and don't care about gs for now.

if you get too bored of clicking it away you can then check why scribus is not finding it on your computer.
