Probably I missed that I upgraded from TL2003 to TL 2004.

I did so on my good old Pismo, and it seems as if this is not a
problem of TL2004 vs. TL2005, but rather a problem of pdftex vs.
altpdftex. When I run pdftex on the testfile everything works fine,
but if I go the dvi --> ps --> pdf route (whether I use gs, version
8.13 or latest version, or apple's distiller, whether I use the
TL2004 or the experimental 2005 setup), no links are available in the
resulting pdf-file. Can you reproduce this behavior? If so, it seems
that for some reason those multmedia-tools are from TL2004 on
incompatible with dvips. This probably means I have to convert my eps-
file to pdf-files, wrap my pstricks-trees with pdftricks and use
pdflatex, though I always hoped I could avoid that (which is why I
never really followed those threads). Could you maybe give me some
hints on how to best convert my files, and how to include those
graphics (instead of using smething like \includegraphics
Thanks again for your help.
