It seems I talked too fast, regarding compatibility with Leopard.
Just installed, on Leopard, xpdf-tools-3.dmg then:
- Uncompressed epspdf.0.2.12.tgz and moved the epspdf directory to /
- Uncompressed epspdf_app.0.2.01.zip and moved the two files
epspdf.app and epspdf.applescript to /Applications/epspdf/.
Bu that doesn't seem to work: every time I launch epspdf.app, I get
the warning "No PostScript- or pdf viewer found" and the View button
I did create a file /usr/local/bin/epspdf containing:
and took care the set the executable bit to true (namely, "sudo chmod a
+x epspdf"). But, as might have been anticipated, that has no effect
on the problem.
One thing I noticed, after looking at epspdfrc.rb, is that no file
~/.epspdfrc is created. Could this be related? If I interpret
correctly these lines from epspdf.rb:
if not $settings.pdf_viewer
Tk.messageBox( :icon=>'warning', :type=>'ok', :message =>
"No PostScript- or pdf viewer found" )
the warning is issued when the pdf_viewer variable isn't set, right?
