postscript printing ploblem


Hi everybody.
I lately switched to espgs-8.15.1-source.tar.gz but it doesn't seem to work properly.
I can view and print (gv) some postscript files correctly wheras others return the following error message (more or less the same):

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Error: /invalidfont in findfont
Operand stack:
Courier Font Courier 188735 Courier --nostringval-- Courier NimbusMonL-Regu
Execution stack:
%interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- 1 3 %oparray_pop 2 3 %oparray_pop --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push 5 4 %oparray_pop --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 1 -1 1 --nostringval-- %for_neg_int_continue
Dictionary stack:
--dict:1115/1686(ro)(G)-- --dict:0/20(G)-- --dict:89/200(L)-- --dict:17/17(ro)(G)-- --dict:1115/1686(ro)(G)--
Current allocation mode is local
Last OS error: 2
Current file position is 1836
ESP Ghostscript 815.01: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

They are files exported from Xfig, pstoedit -f dxf or some of the files in the example directory that comes with the source.
If I manually remove in the ps file any reference to fonfs I can ghostview the image but still it is impossible to get a printout. Funny thing is that there's no sign of written stuff originally put on the image...
Again.. if I ps2pdf the ps file (after the abovementioned removing of fonts reference) the pdf file is both visible and printable.

I there a good soul around that could help?
Thanks a lot,
Pier

This is a stab in the dark, but have you got gnu-gs-fonts installed?

Just look in /var/log/packages for the file gnu-gs-fonts-6.0-noarch-1.

As I said a stab in the dark, perhaps someone else might have an idea.
