Hi,
I am new in using Gimp.
And I have a serious problems with opening eps files.
I found this problem i FAQ section. And the solution: # You
need to install GhostScript to be able to read PostScript
files with The Gimp. GhostScript can be downloaded from
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/. After you install
GhostScript, set the environment variable GS_PROG to the
full path to gs.exe.".

So, I installed GhostScript, yet I have no idea what it
means to "set the environment variable GS_PROG to the full
path to gs.exe.".

Can anyone help me?
Best regards.
BR.

Well, your description here certainly helped me to get Gimp opening eps files (and ps files, which didn't work before, either).

If you're running windows (w2k here), right click My Computer, select Properties and then the Advanced tab. Open the Environment Variables dialog and (either in user variables or system variables, I choosed user...) click New. In the next dialog type GS_PROG in the Variable Name, and the full path to gs.exe (in my case it was D:\Program Files\gs\gs8.51\bin\gswin32.exe) in Variable Value.

Works perfectly now. Thanks, and hope you'll get your system working too.

This way works perfectyly with Windows XP.
Unfortunately it does not work with Windows 98.
Could anybody tell me where is Environ Variables
in Win 98?
Best regards,

(1) Edit C:\autoexec.bat and add the following:
set GS_PROG = D:\Program Files\.....

(replace D:\Progr... with the correct path for your system)

(2) Reboot

It's now set for you automatically each time the computer starts.
