Hello, Thanks very much for all the feedback I got on PS viewers. In fact, only a week ago, I downloaded gv 3..5.8, managed to compile it and it worked fine. I then had to upgrade my gs5.50 to gs6.50 to handle computer modern type 1 fonts. Now, gv no longer works. It gives "Postscript interpreter failed on main page". Of course, one solution is to recompile gs5.50 and switch between the two when needed. GSVIEW is another solution. Thanks and kind regards. George -----Original Message----- From: Phil S.

However, his code base seems to have been actively mined for good ideas in successors. I've been using "gv" 3.5.8 by Johannes Plass successfully for a number of years on Solaris, although it does not seem to have been updated much recently. You can find it at http://wwwthep.physik.uni-mainz.de/~plass/gv/ The 2 major free desktop systems have been creating PS viewers to wrap around ghostscript: KDE has kghostview http://apps.kde.com/na/2/info/id/497 while Gnome has ggv http://www.gnome.org/applist/view.php3?name=ggv These all work pretty well on Linux. If you're stuck on W2K, then you might want to consider GSView (I haven't used it, so I can't say for certain). However, it looks pretty good and it appears to be actively maintained. http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gsview/ HTH.
