opening .eps files
Posted 19 January 2010 - 03:51 AM
When I try to open an .eps file in GIMP I get the message "Error starting Ghostscript. Make sure that Ghostscript is installed and - if necessary - use the environment variable GS_PROG to tell GIMP about its location."
Where do I get the Ghostscript file, and how do I access the environent variable GS_PROG?
Help would be appreciated. :?:

You will need to install ghsotscript which you can find here:
Obtaining GPL Ghostscript 8.64
I assume you are using Windows? If you scroll to the bottom of the page then you will find the download links you need there.

OK, now I have ghostscript installed, but the second part of the messages says " if necessary - use the environment variable GS_PROG to tell GIMP about its location.
(Failed to execute child process (No such file or directory)"
Can you help me with this part as well?
