This is nice. I enjoy the minimalist approach of simply connecting an 
editor and previewer through a TeX engine that remains largely 
invisible. It's working fine for me, except the ps previewing is 
messed up somehow. I got the stuff below on the terminal:

 From this I gather that dvips isn't launching correctly? But I don't 
know how to fix it....
