Failed to open or import pdf files

Previous topic - Next topic


I would like to open or import pdf or eps files but there is
ghostscript fatal error. Help.


Hi Gorgoyle9,

To help further, What operating system? Which version of Scribus? Which version of ghostscript installed?




I have had the same problem with importing PDF file into Scribus 1.4.8 on Windows 11. I have tried a number of PDF files, including some that worked on previous versions of Scribus and a postscript generated as a Scribus export. Same result or Scribus just stops talking to me.

PostScript import failed when calling gs as:
-q -dNOPAUSE -dNODISPLAY -dBATCH -dDELAYBIND -g5472x3456 -r288 -dTextAlphaBits=4 -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -c 0 0 translate -sTraceFile=C:\Users\vic_h\AppData\Local\Temp\\\ps.out -sExportFiles=C:\Users\vic_h\OneDrive\Napoleon\Documents\Projects\Books\20211113 Teheran\Document--9780956343079-Perfect C:\Program Files (x86)\Scribus 1.4.8\libs\import.prolog C:\Users\vic_h\OneDrive\Napoleon\Documents\Projects\Books\20211113 Teheran\9780956343079-Perfect.pdf -c flush cfile closefile quit
