Subject: Re: [Gimp-developer] Re: [Gimp-user] eps images that won't load
Date: Sat, 06 Apr 2002 21:57:42
EPS-files require an additional showpage command submitted to
ghostscript. This is usually done by the ps-plugin. But these binary
PostScript files (I have never seen before) are not recognized as
EPS-files. The plug-in is not looking at the extension.
If you or Gustav are working with Linux, you can use a workaround.
Create a file /tmp/gs_eps with the following content:
args=`echo $* | sed -e 's/eps -c quit/eps -c showpage -c quit/'`
exec gs $args
(Note the different ` and ?).
Make it executable:
chmod 755 /tmp/gs_eps
Set an environment variable in the bash:
and start gimp from that shell:
For Windows I don't know an appropriate workaround.
