Hi Joep. One application I use to create my eps files saves them as
epsi. I just rename them to eps and they import ok. I have done this a
lot to import drawings from our CAD system and don't know if the epsi
from the program I use to adjust the line thicknesses and add text are
actually eps but it works for those drawings. Sometimes I use both
Karbon14 and Inkscape. One edits attributes easier and one saves a
better preview.

Thanks for your reply.
I did that and LO read the file and produced output that was vaguely
recognizable for what is was meant to be. To clarify:
Originally the text is a music score that is produces as output of a
music notation program as a .ps file (which normally is sent to a
postscript printer). Normally I translate it to .pdf with ps2pdf to
sent to others.
However, when I import the .eps file the resolution is far too low and
when I import the .pdf file it uses apparently an own font and not the
font of the .pdf file and of course that is also not usable.
I have still no reliable way to import music scores in LO.

What is your intended use for the scores imported to LO. Do you intend
to print them or make a PDF of them or just view on screen.
The preview bitmap image with the eps is low resolution. You can change
this in Karbon14/Inkscape I think to get higher quality.
I find when I print, my prints are high resolution, from the eps vector
information, not the preview, so check a print.
For high resolution pdf documents from LO I need to print to ps and use
ps2pdf. Printing to pdf direct from LO uses the preview image and the
quality is not good.
