Can't get ghostscript installed on macOS X
« on: June 21, 2018, 07:59:43 am »
Sorry if this isn't the best place to ask, but I'm unsure where else to ask...  I've run the ghostscript 9.09 installer several times but even though it does not error out, I'm left with no gs executable anywhere on the system (verified with find / -type l -name gs -print). I'm unsure where/how to troubleshoot this, but I need ghostscript to try out Scribus. Is anyone aware of a ghostscript incompatibility with macOS X 10.12.6 and what to do about it? I've tried running the configure script both from Finder and from Terminal and, again, it seems fine. Except I get no results after it goes thru its processes. Thanks for any ideas.

hi ktappe     

why don't you try it with a more recent ghostscript? the actual version is 9.23…9.09 might not run with os10.12.
