This shows that the TeX run has succeeded – otherwise there would not  
be a DVI file.

This was produced from the DVI file with dvips.

When you have the PS file, you can change working directory (cd is  
the command) in Terminal to where the PS file is and then invoke

	sh -x ps2pdf handbook.ps

I suppose your Ghostscript installation might be not complete. You  
also could try on the command line:

	which gs ps2pdf ps2pdf14 ps2pdf13 ps2pdf12 ps2pdfwr
	gs --version

Has TeXmaker preferences in which particular binaries and tools are set?

Why can't you use pdflatex to directly produce PDF output?



When in doubt, use brute force.
