Title: How to install scribes 1.5.5?
Post by: Jane Air on October 23, 2019, 03:44:49 pm
Can anyone tell me how to install 1.5.5? I hoped to get one download button, but instead I see several download options. I have a Mac book pro with macOS Catalina. Thanks.

Thank you, but that link goes to the stable branch 1.4.8. And this version doesn't go with Catalina unfortunately.

Nog een keer geprobeerd en de link is inderdaad ok. Weet niet wat er eerder gebeurd is. Ik heb het programma inmiddels open staan. Dank voor je hulp.

The Scribus development version download page says: Mac OS X 10.13 or higher
How can version 1.5.5 be installed on older versions of Mac-OS?

here

https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus-devel/1.5.5/

there are two dmgs to be downloaded... can you try the one without 10.13 in the name and report if it works for you...

you still need a somehow modern version of macos... but it might work...
