Generating thumbnails for pdf files with ghostscript

Ghostscript (gs) is a PostScript and PDF language interpreter and previewer. Sulu is able to use the gs commandline program to generate thumbnail/preview images for pdf files. The location of the gs program depends on your system and needs to be configurated for Sulu to find it.

Add configuration config/packages/sulu_media.yml:

        path: /usr/bin/gs

Common locations are:

  • /usr/bin/gs

  • /usr/local/bin/gs

You can also try to use the which gs command to get the location.
