View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can you guide me to instal this ps2pdf package

December 22nd, 2012, 09:26 AM
I have some .ps files that must be converted to .pdf, some googling leads me to a standalone installer package from: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/intrepid/man1/ps2pdf.1.html
and now I have this file: "ps2pdf.1.gz" in my "download" folder. This file is as large as 1.2 kB (1,196 bytes) and I want to install this package.

Now what should I type in the terminal to install this ps2pdf package?
Thank You.

Not sure where you got the gz file from, but AFAIK the ps2pdf tools are scripts that use the ghostscript engine - if you don't have ghostscript I doubt they'll work. OTOH if you *do* have ghostscript, they should be installed as part of the package - which you can install via the Sotware Center / Synaptic / apt-get
