No generate print preview on xubuntu 18.04
« on: June 09, 2018, 06:21:31 am »
Hi, everyone

I have fresh xubuntu 18.04  and install scribus, works perfectly but i can't see the 'print preview'.
I have installed ghostscript and on 'preferences>external tools' is set 'gs' as postscript interpreter, but i don't know what is the problem.


PD.: I attach a screenshot.

may i ask you what are you using the print preview for?

the tool you are looking at is not a print preview (despite its name) .

the print preview most people are looking for is:

view > preview mode (alt-ctrl-p)

on the other side, if ghostscript is installed through your package manager, i don't see a reason why scribus would not recognize it... strange.
