gv-command does not work

Hello gentlemen,
My OS is Mandriva 2008. Its Bash shell cannot find gv-command (or ggv-command) to display pdf- and ps-files. What shall I do to display these files? Should I modify PATH variable? If it is right, shall I add to the pass the total /usr/share directory? Or something else?
Thank you in advance.

Have you installed the gv package? In Debian at least it's not installed automatically. It's normally found (when it's installed) in the /usr/bin/ folder.

Oh, and there are woman on these forums as well.


gv, mandriva
