pdf-Error: File can't be loaded!

Post by Robin »

Hi,

I am running XnViewMP 0.94.1 on OSX Mojave 10.14.6.
ghostscript 9.50 is installed.

When I click on a pdf-file the error 'File can't be loaded!' pops up - no pdf-file shown. Also preview is empty.

ps-Files work fine.

What's my problem?
It would be great if anybody could help me.

I have first installed ghostscript with homebrew, but this way of installation was new to me, and it did not work with XnViewMP (also restarted), so I installed the package from https://pages.uoregon.edu/koch/ over it.

:bugconfirmed: Thanks to your detailed description I can reproduce the problem.
It's a problem with GS 9.50 (already fixed on windows)

Thank you Pierre for your analysis.
I installed the older GS version 9.27.
pdf works now.
