GIMP 2.8.22 for Mac and GhostScript Integration

Hello,

I'm looking for current methods to enable PS/EPS support in GIMP 2.8.22 for Mac using GhostScript 9.21. I've searched to no avail for solutions. Anything I find refers to older versions and modifying environment variables but the newest version of GIMP has taken these approaches away. GhostScript does its own install and places itself in '/usr/local/bin' and referencing that in any of the Folders options under Preferences does not enable support. I've even pushed that variable path to the top of the list and there's still no ability to open EPS files.

Is anyone opening EPS files in GIMP 2.8.22 for Mac? If so, how are you doing it?

BTW, I've already checked Procedure Browser and 'file-ps-load' and 'file-ps-save' are not listed. 'Info.plist' does actually have an entry for (E)PS files so it would seem the app should support it. Basically, how does one get a new procedure into GIMP?

Thanks, Andrew

This was discussed this last May. Within the thread the person named

Partha is (I think) the person building GIMP for Mac. I have been building GIMP for myself on Linux which is similar. Perhaps you can glean some information from this thread or "Partha" will show up and explain everything....

Hi Carol,

Yes, I am building GIMP for the Mac (McGimp) and integrating it with G'MIC and NUFraw. So, happy to help with any Mac related GIMP questions.

To the OP, please feel free to contact me at the email on my website or here. You can also download my builds and check it out to see if it meets your needs.

Thanks,
Partha
