10.5: View .eps files in Quick Look Desktop
You may have noticed that .eps files do not work in Leopard's Quick Look -- only the icon with some file attributes is shown.

If you want to get a thumbnail icon and a preview in Quick Look, you may want to download the free EPSQuickLookPlugin and install it into your ~/Library/QuickLook folder (if there's no such folder, just create it). A restart may be necessary.

Correct URL, etc.

A quick Google search yielded the correct URL:

The plugin works as described, but the alias of the QuickLook folder in the disk image does not point to the correct location (it references a specific username). The installation instructions also say you may have to restart, but you only have to relaunch the Finder. Do this using the Terminal Command killall Finder or by using Force Quit in the Apple menu to quit the Finder.

I tried to send him links to some more plugins, but his email address bounced. Then I went to his web design site ( and tried his email address there, but it bounced too.
