The problem seems to be that Gerben distributes a version of gs that
cannot display in X11, it's just a simple interpreter. You'd need to
get a version of Ghostscript that is enabled to use X11. You can get
these from Fink or DarwinPorts ...
In a recent version of the Ghostscript-8 i-Package I can see:
lrwxrwxrwx root/admin 0 2006-02-06 19:39:58 ./bin/gs -> gs-noX11
-rwxr-xr-x root/admin 6110324 2006-02-06 19:36:20 ./bin/gs-noX11
-rwxr-xr-x root/admin 6224112 2006-02-06 19:36:20 ./bin/gs-X11
so the actual cure can be simple, provided you have this package
installed: make the symbolic link gs* point to gs-X11! To check
whether gs-X11 really works, invoke 'gs-X11 <a PS or an EPS file>' --
you can quit gs-X11 by following its suggestions in Terminal or xterm
or GNU Emacs and finally press ^D (control d, end of PostScript).
* To find out where it is, type 'which gs' and/or do 'cd `which gs`',
then you can 'sudo -H rm gs' and 'sudo -H ln -s ./gs-X11 gs'. Finished.
