Comment 3 Alessio Caiazza 2005-03-06 05:54:51 UTC
>please try ghostscript-7.05.6-r2

Works well
Comment 4 Simone Piunno 2005-03-07 13:57:49 UTC
Ok but 7.07 is required by xpdf 3.00, which in turn is requred by kdegraphics-3.4
So downgrading is not an option.
So how do we move on?

Comment 5 Simone Piunno 2005-03-07 14:33:45 UTC
Oh, by the way, 7.05.6-r2 has a bug in that it tries to load from


and fails to load it from


so the end result is this:

pioppo@roentgen ~ $ gs

This is how I know it still points to the image directory:
