Unable to launch Scribus on Mac 10.15

Previous topic - Next topic


I downloaded and installed Scribus v. 1.6.1 for my iMac running OS 10.15.7. The Scribus icon appears with a large circle and slash through it. When I try to launch it, I get the message, "You can't use this version of the application 'Scribus.app' with this version of the macOS. You have macOS 10.15.7. The application requires macOS 12.0 or later." Thanks for any help!


well, my best suggestion is...  sound of trumpets and drum rolls... update your mac to 12.0 or later!

you're welcome.


Perhaps you didn't understand my question. I am already on Mac OS 10.15.7, which, as far as I can tell, is later than 10.12.


Latest version of mac os is version 14.0, you are 4 versions behind on your system, and two version behind on the what scribus needs to run on a mac. mac os 12.0 (monterey)

i have no idea how numbers work in the mac world, but no, 10.15 is not bigger than 12 or 13...

and, yes, 10.15 would be bigger than 10.12 and 10.13, if that would matter.


macOS Latest version
macOS Sonoma 14.2.1
macOS Ventura 13.6.3
macOS Monterey 12.7.2
macOS Big Sur 11.7.10
macOS Catalina 10.15.7
macOS Mojave 10.14.6


Scribus 1.6.0 will build on 10.15.7 if someone wants to build for themselves.
