View Full Version : [ubuntu] Where is ps2pdf in Intrepid Ibex?

December 26th, 2008, 04:11 PM
Hi all,

Well, today I saw that the new Intrepid Ibex doesn't have the ps2pdf package. And I would like to install it.

How can i solve it?

Thanks for help ;)

You probably need the texlive-base-bin package. It's in the repos so look for it in synaptic.

And then I have the terminal's command ps2pdf??

Sorry because of the double post, but, I searched so much and I can't understand why in others distributions have it and in Intrepid not.

Some help?

Seems to be in 'ghostscript' (from apt-file search ghostscript).

sudo dpkg -L ghostscript

gives me:


amongst others, so I reckon

sudo apt-get install ghostscript

should do the trick

Problem solved!
