I found the shells and all the stuff in the espgs version 7.07.1. After some
adjustments CUPS launched pstoraster which launch GS and of course that did
not work! But now I have an "Unrecoverable error: rangecheck in
..putdeviceprops"??? There, it seems that GS has a problem... But I do not
give up, I will try to think a little more. May be should I have to compile
and install GS 7.07.1?
What's your mind?
